METI and the TSE have jointly selected enterprises that focus on employee health management from the managerial standpoint and undertake strategic initiatives, naming them as Company Brands Enhancing Corporate Value through Health and Productivity Management (Health & Productivity Stock Selection). Under this program, METI and the TSE select outstanding enterprises listed on the TSE in terms of their health and productivity management and introduce them as attractive investments to investors who prioritize the improvement of corporate value from a long-term perspective. Through this program, METI and the TSE aim to encourage enterprises to further pursue efforts for health and productivity management.
In addition, this program is one of the measures for achieving the goal of “extending the nation’s healthy life expectancy,” set in the Japan Revitalization Strategy.

*Note: Health and productivity management is a practice in which enterprises focus on and strategically carry out efforts with regard to their employees’ health from the viewpoint of management. Investing in employees’ health management based on corporate philosophy is expected to vitalize business organizations in various ways including enhancing vitality and productivity of employees, leading to the mid- to long-term improvement of performance.
