TANAKA Group announces affirmative action to support DEI


A dedicated department, called 'DE&I Promotion Office' has been established since 1 April 2023.

Japan-headquartered, TANAKA Holdings, parent company of TANAKA Precious Metals, has formulated a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) declaration, which focuses on respecting the individuality and differences of employees.

In a statement, the company shared: "TANAKA Group considers the individuality of each employee is the origin of value creation and positions the promotion of DE&I as one of our key management strategies. We declare to make company-wide efforts to promote DE&I."

As part of the new declaration, TANAKA Group has launched the following DE&I guidelines:

  • Diversity: "We will realise an organisation where each employee can recognise and respect the individuality and differences."
  • Equity: "We will provide each employee with opportunities to develop and maximise the potential."
  • Inclusion: "We will create a work environment where each employee can inspire each other and grow together."

In line with this initiative, efforts for promoting DE&I are already in place, with initiatives being undertaken to create a conducive workplace, including:

  • the establishment of systems to support the balancing of work and family,
  • round-table meetings with male employees who took childcare leave, and
  • internal awareness surveys.

In addition, a dedicated department, called 'DE&I Promotion Office' has been established since 1 April 2023, to further promote DE&I. The company hopes to share progress of its initiatives in the future.

As of 31 March 2022, 5,225 employees comprise the consolidated Group, whereby TANAKA Holdings operates as a holding company providing overall administration for TANAKA Precious Metals, which is a group of companies specialising in precious metals.
