The firm, as an entity and its employees are equal participants in promoting CSR activities at different levels.  The company has designated fifth Saturdays of every month, devoted to CSR as “day for activities.” The firm launched the activities on a company-wide basis, full-fledged, in June this year.

Employees volunteer actively towards social services along with keeping the daily operational activities at par. Nippon Express has introduced a support system to make it easier for employees to participate, with the main branch holding discussions, and employees independently planning the content or how bouts of activities.

Some of the activities include:

  • Frequent visits to orphan centers where employees play with the children, clean the vicinity, provide for their meals, toys, and practice tree plantation
  • Visits to schools and elderly care facilities (interacting with residents, cleaning premises, and providing chairs, cooking ingredients, etc.)
  • Distribution of emergency food to workers and other housing areas
  • Participation in local ecological/green events and initiatives
  • Providing meals, stationery, etc., to children
  • Donating blood to cancer patients
  • Clean-up activities in areas around offices, etc.

As a result of such active CSR campaigns, about 80% of all employees are seen participating in activities on the dedicated fifth Saturdays.
