Social contribution activities
Private-sector teacher training
The Keizai Koho Center (KKC) conducts private-sector teacher training in order to deepen understanding about the mindset behind corporate activities and corporate human resource development initiatives. The KKC hopes that teachers will draw on this experience in such areas as children’s education and school management. Agreeing with this idea, the Daikyo Group conducted a private-sector teacher training sessions in 2016, with 8 participants from elementary and junior high schools in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture.
The themes of our training sessions were “changes that reflect society” and “improving customer and employee satisfaction levels.” At the sessions, we conveyed specific Daikyo Group initiatives, including our experience in the condominium management business, and participants learned the importance of creating frameworks and fostering cultures that reflect the voices of customers and employees.
Selling baked goods in-house
Since 2008, we have regularly held in-house sales of cookies, pound cakes, and other baked goods made by intellectually challenged people.
Proceeds support the activities of Palette, a nonprofit organization that runs the Okashiya Palette workshop.
Supporting efforts to protect women and children
We gather PET bottle caps in-house which the Cap-no-Chokinbako Promotion Network then put toward raising money for vaccines for children in developing countries. We also collect used postage stamps for the Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning, which safeguards the lives of women worldwide during pregnancy and childbirth.
Activities to foster the next generation

We hold open-house days for employees’ children during their summer holidays to help them better understand their parents’ work and begin thinking about their own future careers.
