We believe that efforts to maintain and improve the health of our employees are the basis for cultivating employees who are willing to contribute voluntarily and have high engagement towards realizing the hhc philosophy.
We will continue to promote efforts toward the practice of health and productivity management based on the “Eisai Health Declaration” and to further contribute to increasing the benefits of patients and their families.
