Kumamoto prefecture aims to build a gender-equal society by publicly recognizing businesses that are taking a proactive approach in creating comfortable workplaces for both men and women such as supporting employees in achieving a work-life balance and providing an equal opportunity for all employees to attain managerial positions regardless of gender.

Since opening its operations center “BPO Center Kumamoto” in December 2008, transcosmos continues to take extensive initiatives to encourage their female employees to take active roles at work. Now, Kumamoto prefecture has awarded transcosmos for its effort in developing a friendly workplace for all employees with a special focus on women. Its initiatives include offering commuting subsidies for employees with children who commute via their own private car, and holding training sessions for female candidates for managerial positions.

transcosmos considers making women take active roles at work as one of its management challenges and actively assists its female employees to strike a balance between work and family life whilst developing their capabilities. To date, transcosmos has received the “KURUMIN” mark, a certification logo granted to companies that support working families with children by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare under the “Act of Advancement of Measures to Support Raising the Next Generation of Children”, and awarded the 3 star, the highest level of certification under the “Act on Promotion of Women’s Participation and Advancement in the Workplace” from the ministry.

transcosmos continues to drive its effort in creating workplaces that embrace diverse workstyles whilst aiming to build a society where everyone who wants to take part can achieve their full potential regardless of their gender.
