LIXIL makes pioneering water and housing products that solve everyday, real-life challenges, making better homes a reality for everyone, everywhere.
LIXIL is committed to embracing the diversity of people in society and within our firm. This includes enhancing quality of life and well-being for the elderly and the physically disabled through LIXIL products and services, as well as harnessing the intelligence and perspectives of LIXIL’s diverse workforce as an engine for growth and innovation.
With major demographical changes predicted for the next several decades, it is crucial to understand and embrace diversity and inclusion. By 2050, more than one in every five people around the world is projected to be over the age of 60, with many people living either alone or with their spouse only. Approximately 15% of the world’s populations today live with some degree of disability, and this rate is increasing every year.
The LIXIL Group invests in developing universal design (UD), which enables the comfortable living for all people. To further promote these activities, we launched an investigative committee led by senior managers in FYE2018. The committee invited a diverse selection of members from across the Group (marketing, sales, development, public relations, etc.) to attend workshops to help formulate advanced UD concepts and a framework for future UD promotion.
We leverage our differences to create new energy and engagement in the workplace generated by open and honest dialogue across our organization. These efforts will enable our employees to build an entrepreneurial mindset that will drive growth and sustainable innovation.
