CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Working today possesses many challenges for employees. Difficulties in balancing work and private life are common because most people in employment spend a substantial number of hours at work. Makoto considers achieving a work-life balance and targeting measures to promote this. The goal is not only to make employees more productive but also happier and more balanced. We apply a holistic approach to the activities in our company that encourages our employees to participate. All their efforts and time rendered were surely recognized which doesn’t just benefit them but also the company. The activities mentioned below are practiced and constantly improved within our work environment.
Seeking small improvements in processes and products to increase quality and reducing waste is one of the main goals of Makoto. We challenge our employees to share their ideas to further improve the current process to meet the objectives set to satisfy customers. Each month, we conduct direct and indirect kaizen activities. Any ideas are accepted because we strongly believe it helps each one of us to think more outside the box and be more resourceful not just to the problems encountered in the company but also in our daily activities. All the employees are not just encouraged but are trained to come up with ideas for new projects, solutions, and improvements. Every year we held an activity wherein we showcase all the improvement projects. Furthermore, we guarantee to award them to make sure that their effort and time invested in making it into success are paid off. In other words, we bring any ideas into reality.
Training isn’t just important to any company, it is vital. It helps empower employees and leaders to align shared goals and objectives. Moreover, it helps increase the long-term health and performance of the company. We look for different pieces of training by assessing the skills of our employees then evaluate what necessary training to conduct. Training may incur downtime but the benefit it gives is significant.
Training helps improve an employee’s performance which increases their satisfaction and morale. It creates a supportive workplace which shows that the employees are valued. With this, we will have a greater understanding of our responsibilities, and in turn, build our confidence. This confidence will enhance our overall performance which benefits the company in return. Increased efficiency in processes will ensure project success increasing innovation and new strategies for improvement. We believe that great ideas can be gathered and brought into reality.
We do our best to provide a healthy and safe work environment and processes that enable our employees to work injury and illness free. Also, we are committed to comply with all the applicable environmental rules and regulations to cut our carbon footprint. To achieve this we:
1. Recycle most of our resources and continually exert effort to deal wirh any non-conformities upon the environment from our operations and products. For instance, we use aluminum as one of the main material in our production. It is known as one of the most efficient material to process which results to reducing the total exhaust emission of about 350kg of CO2 in every 1 ton of aluminum production according to Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) .
2. Operate in a way that’s performing continual improvement in environmental sustainability through waste minimization, conservation of resources, managing hazardous materials, and raising environmental awareness and responsibility among our employees.
3. Makes sure that our products and services offered aligns the requirements of the Environmental, Health and Safety regulations and continually establish controls in our company-wide Environmental Management System to assure the implementation of the requirements.
We support our employees’ work-and-life balance activities. Every year, there is a sports activity on the premises where our company is located. We join in some tournaments like volleyball, basketball, and football locally and nationally. Also, we provide a free Soccer Class for our employees’ children in collaboration with one of the soccer teams in our region.
We perform the said activities alongside our normal duties, and finding the right balance between the two is indeed a challenge. It trains us to be more flexible. With this, we bring out more the best in each one of us and make us more confident in everything that we do.
