Certified as a Sports Yell Company in 2019December 26, 2019Press Release

Support for employees' health through in-house club activities and sports events

NTN Corporation (hereafter, NTN) has been evaluated by the Japan Sports Agency for its various sports-related measures for its employees, and certified as a Sports Yell Company in fiscal 2019, a company actively engaged in initiatives to promote the health of its employees.

In addition to supporting a number of in-house club activities, such as ski, snowboard, tennis, and futsal, we regularly hold sports events for employees, such as marathon and softball tournaments, at each of the plants in Japan. The Agency also recognized various initiatives to improve the health of our employees, improve the efficiency of our operations and make an exercise habit. These efforts included the daily exercises (radio exercises, etc.) in production divisions, and the promotion of stand-up meeting in back-office departments and these efforts led to this certification.

NTN regards the promotion of employees' health as an important element of management that affects the company's sustainable growth. We are promoting health management* based on the 3 pillars of “supporting health at workplace,” “supporting mental health,” and “improving physical health.” NTN will continue to create a comfortable working environment where each employee can fully demonstrate the ability through initiatives related to supports and aimed at improving employees' health.
