Employee Attitude Survey

Toray Industries, Inc. regularly conducts an employee attitude survey to gauge the level of employee engagement, implementation of the medium-term management program, motivation level of employees, and workplace conditions. The employee attitude survey conducted in fiscal 2019 yielded positive results with many respondents indicating they held a favorable view of the Company and found it to be a motivating place to work. The survey results are used to identify gaps that may exist between employee attitudes and customer assessments from customer satisfaction surveys, and analyze the level of communication between managers and staff. The results of the employee attitude survey are circulated within the company as feedback and are utilized to make improvements.
In addition, since fiscal 2018, a similar survey has been conducted in five languages (English, Chinese, Indonesian, Thai, and Korean) for employees of group companies outside Japan.
