Creating a rewarding workplace
Daiwa Securities Group believes that maximizing the engagement of our employees will lead to improved customer satisfaction and consequently enhance shareholder value. We take a range of measures to ensure that all of our employees feel a sense of job satisfaction and that their families and partners share their pride to be part of the Group.
We have nurtured our corporate culture since the foundation of our business, and we regard it as the core of Daiwa’s identity. We have taken steps to crystallize the basic philosophy and mindset of the Group inherent in our culture to be manifested as the “Daiwa Spirit.” We hope that the “Daiwa Spirit” will enhance employees’ sense of unity and togetherness and thus the Group’s overall strength.

We therefore support and respect the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, ISO 26000, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the Act on the Promotion of Human Rights Education and Human Rights Awareness-Raising. We have also joined the UN Global Compact.
