Initiatives for Maintaining and Promoting Health
CITIZEN Health Insurance Society conducts operations to maintain and improve the health of Group employees and their families.
Launching “PEP UP,” a website that offers health information
In January 2017, the society launched the “PEP UP” health information website for insured persons and their dependent spouses for the purpose of managing and promoting the health of employees and their families. “PEP UP” on a smartphone or computer offers a variety of content that helps improve health. “My Health” informs users of areas in which they should take care based on the results of their health checkup, “Health Articles” offer health information matching the user’s state of health, and “Medical Fees/Benefits” enables users to view information, such as medical fees and generic drugs when getting medical care at a hospital. The society will continue to encourage employees and their families to utilize the website.
・Diversification of special health guidance
Special health guidance gives advice on improving lifestyles to persons 40 years old and older who are at high risk for lifestyle-related diseases. In addition to the conventional individual consultations, in some workplaces group seminars on health guidance are also introduced to raise health awareness among employees. Furthermore, early measures are taken for employees under 40 who are at high risk.
・Launching the 2nd phase of the Digital Health Plan in FY2018
FY 2018 marks the launch of the 2nd phase of the Digital Health Plan that started in FY2015, and in FY 2017 new projects are to be planed. The CITIZEN Health Insurance Society plans actions such as recommending medical checkups to those not seeking treatment based on health checkup results and medical exam history, and reassessing projects that prevent disease progression.
The society continues to carry out initiatives to further enhance medical checkups and improve the percentage of employees and their families receiving regular medical checkups for cancer by continuing efforts such as distributing vouchers for free medical checkups for specific types of exams to employees’ families, providing “assistance with quitting smoking,” giving “home-visit health consultation for young-old citizens,” offering “a subsidy for medical checkups for the brain,” holding “classes on nursing care and health,” and operating around the clock “Mental and Physical Health Consultation”by telephone.

Activities to maintain and promote health
The Tokyo Office and the Tokorozawa Office make efforts to maintain and promote the health of employees under the direction of the Health and Safety Committee at each company. At the Tokyo Office, an industrial physician lectured on health based on the theme, “Sleep and Occupational Health.” Also, the Health Care Section held a “walking campaign” as an event in which any CITIZEN Group member could participate to provide an opportunity for them to focus on health while having lighthearted fun. The CITIZEN Group will continue to improve employee health by carrying out various types of activities that maintain and promote health.

CITIZEN WATCH MANUFACTURING
Since CITIZEN WATCH MANUFACTURING was established, this company-wide walk-for-health event has been held every year as a special project included in the “Shine☆361,” activities for nurturing the company climate.
Hypothetical start lines and goals are decided upon, such as “walk across the plant” and “walk a bullet train route.” Participants convert the accumulated number of steps they have taken into distances and have fun aiming for their goals while checking their progress.
There are token prizes, and employees have a great time each year.
In FY2016, as many as 1,700 employees participated and the event has become a perfect catalyst for promoting health. In FY2017, posters were prepared and this year’s “walk expressways” was carried out.
