Efforts on Compliance

Taikisha has set out the “Taikisha Ltd. Code of Conduct” as a code for ethics and compliance of all officers and employees. In accordance with the Mission Statement: “Customers First”, Taikisha is making efforts to enhance a system to conduct fair and sound business activities and contribute to society.

Compliance promotion system

Taikisha’s compliance promotion structure is comprised of the Compliance Committee, Corporate Compliance Dept., Compliance Officers, and the Whistle-blowing System.
By taking these measures, Taikisha aims to establish its compliance system that detects minor violations and implements remedial measures on their own while preventing material legal violations both at domestic and overseas business offices.

Efforts to penetrate Compliance

Taikisha has established the Compliance Activity Standards to implement the Code of Conduct. Taikisha has also distributed the Compliance Manual serving as guidelines for concrete actions to all officers and employees to ensure thorough understanding and compliance with the standards.
Furthermore, Taikisha regularly provides compliance training at its business offices in Japan and overseas, with the purpose of thoroughly getting across important laws, regulations, and rules where Taikisha has a high compliance violation risk and of reducing such risk.

As part of training to ensure thorough understanding of its Mission Statement and Principles of conduct as well as complying with laws and regulations, Taikisha provides an e-learning program targeting all employees.

In addition, the Corporate Compliance Dept. are striving to detect and prevent problems early and to improve activities by regularly visiting business offices in Japan and overseas, and monitoring the compliance management system and the status of compliance with laws, regulations, and internal rules.

The Whistle-blowing System

Taikisha has established a whistle-blowing hotline through which any legal violation, misconduct, or unethical conduct can be reported directly to the Corporate Compliance Dept. or an outside law firm. The whistle-blowing hotline can be used by officers and employees of Taikisha and its group companies as well as dispatched employees, and officers and employees of business partners.
In operating the whistle-blowing hotline, Taikisha takes all possible means to protect the privacy of whistleblowers. For instance, Taikisha strictly manages contents of whistle-blowing reports received through the whistle-blowing hotline and conduct awareness-raising activities on protection of whistle-blowers to employees.
