Consolidated: Eiken Chemical Co., Ltd. and Eiken China Co., Ltd.
Non-consolidated: Eiken Chemical Co., Ltd. (all data other than “Consolidated no. employees” is non-consolidated (Eiken Chemical only))

1 In management: Managerial positions of section-manager level or higher
2 Calculated using: Numerator: No. full-time employees leaving the Company within the fiscal year (April 1 to March 31) , Denominator: No. full-time employees as of April 1 of the fiscal year
3 Calculated based on the provisions of the Act on Promotion of Women's Participation and Advancement in the Workplace (Act No. 64 of 2015)
The gender pay gap shows the ratio of women's wages to men's wages.
[All employees] There is no difference in wages for the same work, and the wage gap between men and women is due to differences in the composition of personnel by grade.
[Part/fixed-term employees] A high percentage of men are rehired after retirement with specialties, resulting in a gender wage gap.
4 No. scheduled work hours + no. non-scheduled work hours – annual paid leave and other paid leave
5 Denominator: Number of male employees whose spouse gave birth during the fiscal year;Numerator: Number of male employees who used our company's original leave program for parental leave and childcare during the fiscal year 
(Depending on when the spouse gave birth, employees who take childcare leave in the following fiscal year are included, so the acquisition rate may exceed 100%.)
6 Denominator: Number of female employees who gave birth during the fiscal year; Numerator: Number of female employees who took childcare leave during the fiscal year
(Depending on the time of childbirth, employees who will take childcare leave in the following fiscal year are included, so the acquisition rate may exceed 100%.)
7 Share of employees eligible for detailed clinical tests who undergo such tests at a facility designated by the  Health Insurance Society
8 Rate of uptake of the Eiken Global Program: No. Program participants in each fiscal year ÷ no. employees of the fiscal year
9 Includes no. themes continuing from the previous fiscal year
