DISCO has developed and published the JSA standards and specification, “Employee Satisfaction Standards JSA-S1001” for the first time as an individual company

DISCO Corporation (Head Office: Ota-ku, Tokyo; President: Kazuma Sekiya), a semiconductor processing equipment manufacturer, has published the employee satisfaction standards JSA-S1001 “Human resource management – Employee satisfaction – Guidelines for code of conduct in organizations” based on the standards of the Japanese Standards Association (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President: Toshio Ibi). These standards conceptualize various efforts to improve the employee satisfaction rate in DISCO and have been compiled as a highly-versatile document.

There were previously no standards in the world which focused on employee satisfaction. DISCO is also the first company to develop and publish JSA standards as an individual company.

Publication Background

Recently, the workstyle of employees has been gaining a lot of attention in society. Employee integrity and retention rate also largely affects the quality of company products and services. DISCO has been working hard to increase the employee satisfaction rate based on the idea that ”True CS (Customer Satisfaction) is never achieved without ES (Employee Satisfaction),” while providing a workplace which employees work with pride and motivation by balancing work and private life, and being healthy both physically and mentally. As a result, DISCO has been evaluated highly in society and was awarded first place in the “Great place to work with high productivity” awards by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (2017), and was also selected by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry as a company which embodies “Health management” (2019).

This led DISCO to compile a versatile document so that every company and organization may use the knowledge DISCO has nurtured to increase the satisfaction of their employees and contribute to the improvement of the working environment in all of society. DISCO has thereby developed and published the “Employee Satisfaction Standards JSA-S1001” based on the JSA standards and specifications.

Explanation of Employee Satisfaction Standards

These standards are a guideline to help in the self-realization of employees and nurture the relationships of trust among employees while planning, executing, and evaluating a code of conduct to realize “job satisfaction,” “employee-friendly work,” and “being healthy both mentally and physically,” They state clearly the important basic factors in how to appeal to the “human aspect” that is employee satisfaction, including “willingness to follow the values of the organization and leaders,” “ability to select ideal work,” “achieving relationships of trust among employees,” and “being healthy and lively both physically and mentally.”

About the Japanese Standards Association & JSA-S (JSA Standards and Specifications)

JSA (Japanese Standards Association)

The Japanese Standards Association (JSA) was established as an incorporated organization in 1945 under the authorization of the Minister of Trade and Industry. The association provides total solutions as a centralized organization, from consultations about standardization, to the creation of standards and support in the adoption of standards, including the certification of required personnel.

JSA-S (JSA Standards and Specifications)

With the growing needs for standards that are not being developed by Japan’s standards development bodies, JSA established the JSA standards and specifications (JSA-S) in June 2017. JSA-S are developed using a standards development process with assured transparency, fairness, and objectivity to allow more flexibility in meeting the needs of companies and organizations.
