The COPRO Group considers promoting the advancement of women an important management priority to enhance corporate value, in addition to solving the social challenge presented by a shortage of human resources in the construction industry. We have worked to establish a system to enable employees to achieve work-life balance, enhance benefits, etc. We are known among client companies for having roughly 30% women engineers actively contributing at client companies, compared to the construction industry where working women comprise 15%* of all employees.

We will continue to focus efforts on establishing an environment where women can achieve job satisfaction, generating outstanding women who are role models, and developing the next generation of management candidates.

The number of seniors aged 65+ who wish to work is increasing due to the lengthening of the average life span in Japan and revision of the Act on Stabilization of Employment of Elderly Persons which took effect in April 2021.

Our Group places importance on following human resources after they are dispatched. We determine the client company to dispatch senior human resources to after sufficient consideration of their wishes and health, so they are able to succeed as engineers.
