Create a Workplace

Fundamental Concept

Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) has established the MUFG Human Resources Principles as its basic approach toward realizing human resource management in line with the MUFG Way. Along with the MUFG Way, our basic code of conduct, the MUFG Human Resources Principles are shared and communicated with all MUFG Group employees through training at the time of hire as well as in-house training and are also publicized on MUFG's website.

Initiatives of Group Companies

Compliance with Laws and Regulations

MUFG Group companies regularly monitor working conditions to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations of the countries and regions in which they operate and strive to improve working environments and working hours. Each company is also compliant with the Act to Promote Work Style Reform that came into effect in April 2019. Items being monitored include whether there are violations of Article 36 on overtime work and minimum wage violations, and the number of work-related accidents.

Reducing Overtime

MUFG regularly monitors overtime hours and the number of employees who work long hours, with the entirety of the Group working to improve working environments. Group companies record PC log-on and log-off times for daily work management and in addition to accurately ascertaining each employee's work status, management operates with an awareness of limits set on working hours and the intervals within which employees work. Additionally, MUFG is striving to correct long working hours by optimizing operations through the use of RPA (Robotic Process Automation), setting target times for leaving the office, and establishing early finish days.

As a result, progress is being made on reducting overtime hours for employees in Japan.

Employee Health Promotion

MUFG companies have occupational physicians and counselors for managing the health of employees through offering follow-up health checkups based on the results of routine medical exams, conducting consultations with employees about issues of overwork and so on. The companies also work with doctors and counselors in ensuring the mental health of employees. Stress checks and so on are also implemented as part of the effort to preserve the mental and physical wellbeing of employees.

Promoting Workstyle Reforms

MUFG has positioned promoting work style reforms as one of the 10 priority issues to be addressed via sustainability management. As we aim to enable employees to realize their full potential, we have promoted the revision of administrative procedures and the streamlining of meeting practices while going paperless and developing infrastructure for remote working. By doing so, we help employees allocate more time to engaging in direct communications with customers and taking on new challenges.

Currently, we are pushing ahead with expanding the scope of banking procedures that can be completed online, believing that improving the efficiency of our financial functions, which constitute a part of social infrastructure, will help society as a whole achieve higher productivity, in addition to making us more productive.

Promotion of Smart Work

MUFG is promoting the active use of remote work and staggered working hours, and employee motivation and work efficiency by realizing a flexible work style that is not restricted by location or time.

The development of a working environment supportive of remote working

Promoting the development of a working environment supportive of remote working by, for example, enhancing satellite offices, facilitating the use of online meetings, and upgrading functions of company-furnished smartphones

Paperless initiatives

With the release of an online business card exchange function, we are promoting the digitization of business cards and the digitization of contracts to promote paperless initiatives.

Health and Productivity Management

Our Approach to Health and Productivity Management

MUFG is promoting mental and physical health as part of its efforts to respect employees' human rights and create a pleasant workplace environment with a positive atmosphere. To be concrete, industrial physicians and counselors are stationed at each MUFG Group company to manage employee health through follow-up medical examinations based on the results of regular health checkups and interviews with overworked employees.

It also works in liaison with external doctors and counselors to address employees' mental health issues.

Another effort is the maintenance of employees' mental and physical health using stress level checks and other measures.
