Compliance with and oversight of corporate philosophy

The PPIH Group considers the entire contents of its corporate philosophy, "The Source", to be a code of conduct to be followed. "The Source" defines our overall corporate philosophy, including our management philosophy, employee mindset and conduct, building good relationships with business partners, and strict adherence creating stores where people feel safe, and are safe.

Understanding and Instilling our corporate ethics based on our collection of Corporate Philosophies, "The Source"

In order to ensure thorough implementation of corporate ethics based on "The Source", our corporate philosophy and code of conduct, the Group has established the Corporate Philosophy Promotion Headquarters under the control of the Executive Officer in charge in order to promote understanding, awareness, and educational activities among all employees, including those in management. Additionally, when issues or problems related to corporate ethics arise, the Awards and Disciplinary Committee deliberates and works to resolve the issues.

Training for Understanding and Instilling Corporate Ethics

In order to deepen the understanding and instillation of "The Source", which is the pillar of our corporate ethics promotion, we conduct self-study using e-learning and examinations to ascertain the level of understanding. There is a general examination once a year for general employees, and a Master of The Source certification examination twice a year, mainly for Managers. A Master of The Source is an employee who understands and practices the teachings of "The Source" and is responsible for spreading it's teachings to other employees. These Masters of The Source take the lead in spreading it throughout the company and thoroughly implementing The Source Management. UNY, which joined the Group in January 2019, believes that understanding and instilling "The Source" in all employees is essential for implementing individual store management in the GMS business, and is implementing its own programs, including on-the-job training at Don Quijote stores and training for employees who want to become Masters of The Source. As a result of these various measures, the number of Masters of The Source at UNY reached 936 as of June 30, 2022.
We are also conducting training to introduce "The Source" to new employees and mid-career hires, and will continue to promote understanding among Group companies overseas.
