Expanding the personnel system accounting for opportunities and skill-building for women

Promotion of Women's Careers

In the energy plant business, technicians from science and technology backgrounds, few of them women, previously comprised the majority of company staff, and due to factors such as carrying out construction work under harsh environmental conditions or a multitude of projects in Islamic countries, the field was characterized by obstacles to women's careers. However, at JGC Group we have been advancing the promotion of women to leadership positions and the creation of a supportive work environment for women through, e.g. discussions with female employees and expansion of our family care system, including working from home, and in recent years the number of female employees and managers has been steadily increasing.
