We would like to inform you that we have expanded the scope of use of Unipos to 10 companies within the Shizuoka Financial Group.

Background to the expansion of Unipos usage to 10 companies within Shizuoka Financial Group
The needs of financial institutions are diversifying, and regional issues associated with the declining birthrate and aging population are also becoming more complex. Based on the idea that it is important to shift from a bank-centered structure to an organizational structure in which each group company can demonstrate its expertise in accordance with customer needs, we transitioned to a holding company structure in October 2022 and established Shizuoka Financial Group. I did. Shizuoka Bank, one of our group companies, started using Unipos in May 2021, and has gradually seen an increase in employee awareness survey scores, free and open communication, and an increase in the number of employees taking on new challenges. There are signs of a cultural shift. Based on these results, we expanded the scope of use to 10 group companies based on the belief that it is important to utilize the power of positive messages of gratitude and praise to create communication that transcends the boundaries of group companies.
Visible collaboration that was previously invisible from “Unipos” posts across groups
At Shizuoka Financial Group, we engage in daily operations while leveraging the expertise of each company. However, it is not possible to share the “good actions” and knowledge that occur through business emails and chat tools alone, and after transitioning to a holding company structure, it is necessary to further strengthen the collaborative power of the entire group and foster a sense of unity. , I thought we needed more help. After using Unipos for two years at Shizuoka Bank, we heard from employees who wanted to expand Unipos to other group companies, so we made it possible for employees from different companies to post on Unipos. Unipos posts messages on the web in timeline format. Shizuoka Financial Group is the first company among companies that have introduced Unipos to utilize the same timeline across groups. Through messages of gratitude and praise, we visualize daily “good behavior” and use it to create opportunities to increase collaboration among the group.
