Respect for Human Rights and Promotion of Diversity
Basic Concept on Human Rights
Anritsu participates in the United Nations Global Compact, intended to encourage conduct under the universal principles of human rights and labor. In addition, company policies and guidelines based on international rules on human rights, including the International Labor Organization’s 1998 Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights endorsed by the U.N. Human Rights Council in 2011, are in place at Anritsu and serve as in-house mandates that maintain our awareness of human rights issues at every stage of the value chain, from research and development to procurement, production, logistics and sales, and to ensure that we promote initiatives for these issues.

Basic Approach to Respect for Diversity
Anritsu upholds respect for human rights as one of our highest priority issues in both the Anritsu Group Charter of Corporate Behavior and Anritsu Group Code of Conduct. As a diverse workforce becomes essential for companies to grow amid rapid business globalization, we believe that nurturing a corporate culture that does not tolerate any kind of discrimination serves as a foundation for all initiatives on diversity.
The Anritsu Group promotes initiatives on diversity and inclusion under this policy.
|Policy on Diversity
- We nurture a corporate culture that allows a diverse workforce to demonstrate their personal qualities and abilities based on their lifestyles, regardless of nationality, gender, age, views on work, faith and region, sexual orientation or disability.
- We respect diversity in the workplace, accept various viewpoints and provide everyone with an opportunity to apply their personal strengths in order to respond to the evolving business environment and generate corporate value.
In fiscal 2016, we established the Diversity Promotion Team within the Human Resources and Administration Department to carry out activities for promoting diversity, which includes developing women’s careers, supporting the work-life balance, hiring more persons with disabilities, and developing the careers of non-Japanese employees.
