Principle and Outline
The Daigas Group is endeavoring to create workplaces where human rights are respected and employees can work with peace of mind, as indicated in "Our Declaration," the abridged version of the Daigas Group Code of Conduct, which states "We will achieve a workplace where human rights are respected and employees can work in comfort and with peace of mind."
In hiring employees, we focus on matching individuals' suitability and requested assignments with the skill and work requirements of Group companies. We are also regularly conducting Employee Attitude Surveys to determine whether workplace environments are in fact conducive to employee retention.

Creating a Good Work Environment
As of March 31, 2020, the average length of service at Osaka Gas was approximately 17.5 years. This is much higher than the 17.2-year average for companies of at least 1,000 employees (according to the survey, conducted by the Central Labour Relations Commission of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare). We also have a low employee turnover rate (1.05%) for employees under 50 years of age. We believe this is a result of efforts to increase value for employees, such as by providing opportunities for growth and creating a good work environment.
