A company awarded with a “Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organization” designation is a company that considers managing employee health from a corporate management perspective and is strategically engaged in such efforts.

Olympus believes that creating a workplace environment in which its employees can work in good health and with vitality is a prerequisite for advancing the company’s various activities.
To support this, Olympus established the Olympus Health Declaration in April 2018, which proclaims management’s commitment to firmly support maintaining and promoting the health of its employees and their families, in cooperation with Olympus Health Insurance Society.
While reviewing and strengthening the health support system and clarifying the health issues of the Olympus Group, the company has actively implemented various health measures and lifestyle improvement measures in response to changes in the work environment and working style. In addition to verifying the effectiveness of each measure, Olympus has set evaluation indicators for overall health management and actively publishes them on the Olympus Group corporate website. These efforts were recognized with this certification.
Olympus will continue to actively develop health management measures aimed at achieving its corporate philosophy of “Making people’s lives healthier, safer and more fulfilling,” giving priority to the health of the employees—and their families—who are vital to supporting those activities.
