To create a work environment where it is difficult for harassment to occur and to provide an early resolution when it does occur, we provide education and training as well as e-learning for managers and raise awareness by distributing compliance manuals such as the Manual to Prevent Sexual Harassment. We have also established a point of contact for sexual harassment consultation with trained staff in charge.
