What is KAITEKI Health and Productivity Management?

Definition

KAITEKI Health and Productivity Management refers to initiatives which maximize the active participation of “workers” - one of the most valuable assets - from the perspective of health.
It has two main strands – “health support” and “workstyle reforms” for the employees and the workplaces. To realize KAITEKI, we are extending the scope of the Health and Productivity Management to encompass the wellness of families, communities and society as a whole, and we plan to integrate and utilize various innovative technologies such as ICT and IoT in these health-oriented initiatives.
