Valuing People (Respect for Human Rights)

The Topcon Group has a global, diverse workforce with a wide variety of backgrounds, origins, experiences, and cultures. We respect diverse values, fundamental human rights, and individual personalities and characters in light of human dignity, and seek to maintain a workplace where every individual is respected.

We are committed to providing equal opportunity in employment and business. We will not tolerate unlawful discrimination in the workplace, and ensure that all employees, job applicants, customers, and suppliers are treated equally and respectfully, regardless of race, religion, sex, nationality, age, physical or mental disability, sexual orientation, or other attributes. Our commitment to a safe and secure work environment means that we will not tolerate workplace violence or threats. Prohibited conduct includes not only physical violence or abuse, but also abusive, intimidating, or disorderly conduct and threatening language. Moreover, we will not allow for using child labor or forced labor.

The Topcon Group considers a direct exchange of views between labor and management as critical for protecting the rights of workers. In Japan, we have both the Topcon Labor Union and the Topcon Group Labor Union Council for affiliated group manufacturers. Topcon holds regular labor-management gatherings and councils, where we explain the Company’s business conditions to the Topcon Labor Union, in an effort to enhance communication.
