Best Workplace Certification
・What is the “D&I Award”?
The D&I Award aims to promote D&I throughout society and to promote D&I as a matter of course through these three objectives: “supporting companies engaged in D&I,” “updating the ideal state of D&I,” and “making it easier to promote D&I.” It is an award that certifies companies that work on diversity and inclusion with the aim of realizing “society”.

In the screening process, we focus on five elements of diversity: gender, LGBT, disability, multicultural coexistence, and
childcare/nursing care. We will position companies that work to solve these five issues and take advantage of diversity as “D&I promotion companies.”
This year, there were 553 entries (including group companies).
