Tokyo Electron Named among the Top 500 Companies in the 2022 Certified Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organizations Recognition Program

Tokyo Electron (TEL) announced today that the company was selected among the top 500 companies for the fourth consecutive year under the 2022 Certified Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organizations Recognition Program*1, which is held jointly by the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) and the Nippon Kenko Kaigi. For the third year in a row, TEL and six TEL Group companies operating in Japan, together earned recognition in this program.

TEL gives the highest consideration to safety and health as part of its management policies. To let employees exercise their abilities to the fullest extent, the company believes it is important to ensure they remain healthy in body and mind. Accordingly, TEL issued the wellness declaration in February 2012 and has promoted Eat-Rest-Walk-Talk programs designed to maintain and improve the employees’ health in cooperation with occupational health physicians, public health nurses, and health insurance societies.

TEL is actively promoting work-life balance, while also reinforcing healthcare support according to each employee’s state of health. In addition, based on the collaborative health*2 concept, TEL is actively pursuing data health*3 initiatives, in which employees’ medical checkup data is used to provide personalized health guidance and to implement effective disease prevention and health promotion. As a result, the percentage of employees receiving specific health guidance*4 has increased, and their overall health literacy is improving.

In addition, the company encourages spontaneous health activities of its employees, for instance by distributing a personal health app that gives access to their physical checkup results and lets them participate in various healthcare events. Through these efforts, TEL is raising the employees’ health awareness and supporting a healthier lifestyle.

Heartened by this recognition, TEL is redoubling its global efforts to promote the health and productivity of its employees.
