Changes in the social environment have created issues such as a declining birthrate and aging population, diversifying lifestyles, and natural disasters. The Tosei Group addresses those issues through a wide range of activities including creation of comfortable residences, creation of comfortable working environments, and support for disaster-stricken areas.
For Our Customers
Creation of Comfortable Residences
In certain projects in its detached house development business, the Tosei Group provides barrier-free houses by applying a unique design code consisting of ten items, which are based on the concept of "permanent residence." The Group aims to develop houses that are comfortable for young children and the elderly and that are homes where all generations of families can continue to live comfortably.
Product Planning by Women
In its detached house development business, the Tosei Group has launched the "Irodorie," a project featuring product planning by women. Under this project, the Group has been developing products that cater to customer needs. The Group proposes homes that are comfortable for all family members, by focusing attention on the ideas of women, who support family life through household tasks, childcare, and other activities.
Development of Secure Towns
Creation of community spaces
Tosei converted T’s garden Kitakashiwa , an idle company-owned apartment, into a rental condominium for families through value-improving work that made the most of the existing building. With a focus on meeting the needs of the child-bearing generation, it created three community spaces: the Kids Room, in which parents and children can play without worry about inconveniencing the neighbors, the Party Room, where residents can have a good time with friends and relatives through activities such as cooking classes or birthday events, and the Study Room, in which residents can enjoy solitude while studying alone or reading. Through such efforts, it provides spaces that all family members can use to make their lives more comfortable depending on different situations. Starting with the management of applications for rentals in July 2016, Tosei has been engaged in the operation of the condominium.
Promotion of Community Formation
Tosei held a festival at THE Palms Court Kashiwahatsuishi, which are detached houses it developed, to promote interaction among residents and between residents and people in the neighboring areas. Tosei links between people help build communities, part of its efforts to promote the development of towns that allow customers to be integrated into local communities.

Tosei strives to provide customers with safe and reliable products by conducting inspections and particularly rechecking those items that customers cannot oversee.

In addition, the Health Committee, which is comprised of employees and partner industrial physicians, reviews the general working environment monthly, including the status of the office environment and medical checkups. The results of the reviews are provided to employees as feedback.
The Group sends questionnaires and provides training to all employees in relation to mental health care under the guidance of partner industrial physicians. It also moves forward with initiatives to maintain employees’ physical and mental health condition by requiring employees who engage in overtime work that exceeds a certain amount to have an interview with industrial physicians and other professionals. In addition, the Group provides a consultation service for sound mental health in collaboration with external medical institutions. The service provides a contact point for employees and their families through which they can casually request health consultations without worry, either by phone or e-mail.
Efforts to reduce overtime work

Implementation of family workplace visit
The Group has a family workplace visit day every year in the hope that the children of employees can have a better understanding of their parents’ jobs and workplaces. A total of 79 persons from 26 families visited the Company in 2018 and enjoyed the experience of exchanging business cards, attending a stamp-rally in which they visited different workplaces and collected stamps, and creating model housing, among other programs. The event serves as a place of interaction between employees’ families.

This year, it took part in the Nishinagisa-Hatsu Tokyo-Satoumi-Aid, a clean-up event held at Kasai Rinkai Park to remove marine debris. It also checked the types of debris collected and measured the total volume to contribute to future surveys for identifying the cause of marine debris. Going forward, the Company will continue to promote environmental conservation activities.
