Mitsubishi Electric Announces Measures to Prevent Recurrence of Suicide by New Employees January 10 16:31
Mitsubishi Electric Corp., a major electronics maker, is focusing on creating a workplace that does not allow harassment acts, as new employees are committing suicide, such as committing suicide by leaving a note to the effect of bullying from their boss. We announced the recurrence prevention measures.
In August of last year at Mitsubishi Electric, a new employee, a man in his twenties, assigned to an office in Hyogo Prefecture, committed suicide with a note from his boss stating that he was bullying.
The memo states that he was told to commit suicide, and his boss, who was in charge of male education, was sent documents on suspicion of inciting suicide.
In response to this problem, Mitsubishi Electric announced measures to prevent recurrence on October 10.
Measures will focus on creating a workplace that absolutely does not allow power harassment.In addition to strengthening harassment education for all employees, we will conduct a monthly questionnaire to ask all employees about workplace relationships and stress. .
In addition, the company is working to introduce a system in which people who are not related to their boss or subordinate can be contacted for consultation.
At Mitsubishi Electric four years ago, a new employee at his office in Hyogo Prefecture committed suicide and bullying was the cause of his parents asking for damages from the company. A worker's accident was identified as a suicide by a male employee of a subsidiary a year ago due to overwork.
Mitsubishi Electric has stated that preventing reoccurrence of labor problems is a top management priority, and will make every effort to create a work environment in which all employees can maintain mental and physical health and work with peace of mind.
