DISCO Values represent the corporate philosophy that identifies the ideal from various perspectives,
including the direction in which the company should progress, the basic approach of management, and the
manner in which each and every employee works. The basic version of DISCO Values was established in 1997 and
shared with the entire company.
DISCO Values stipulate over 200 items, systematically organized so they may be reflected in actual activities. Specifically, they document general corporate social responsibility (CSR) concepts by which we aim to exchange value with our stakeholders, all the while fulfilling the company's social mission. DISCO strives to conduct all of our activities from management decisions to day-to-day business in line with DISCO Values.
The following are examples of DISCO Values:
"Advanced Kiru, Kezuru and Migaku technologies" is DISCO's business domain. In other words, DISCO will never deviate from the three technology fields of Kiru, Kezuru and Migaku in our business activities. The company's social mission is to connect the ever-advancing science to bountiful and comfortable lifestyles via these core technologies.
The management of a company can significantly change depending on how it defines its growth. DISCO does not think of growth in terms of expansion of sales, scale or market share. For DISCO, growth is measured by how close we come to achieving our Mission and by the increase in our exchange of value with and satisfaction for our stakeholders, such as the customers, employees, stockholders, and suppliers.
DISCO's motto is "Always the best, Always fun." We feel that, as professionals, it is a given that we thoroughly pursue the highest level of quality in the performance of our work. Also, it is just as important that we enjoy our work. These do not contradict each other, but rather we feel that their compatibility contributes to a fulfilling work experience.
The DISCO Vision plays the role of a milestone to specifically define what we want to be or what we should aim at as a goal for the future in achieving our mission.
The DISCO Vision was established in 1997 and we started our activities aiming at 2010. In 2010, when we
reached the achievement year, we reviewed our progress and established DISCO Vision 2020 for where we
want to be in the future aiming at further evolution.
The DISCO Vision 2020 was drawn from a future perspective as was the previous vision and also provides quantitative targets such as sales and profits along with qualitative targets.
This new Vision defines the goals for 2020 from multiple angles. The Element Angle elucidates what the corporation is based on its main elements, such as the business, organization and human resources, while the Stakeholder Angle focuses on the relationship between DISCO and our predominant stakeholders.
Aiming at the achievement of DISCO Vision 2020, specific annual targets have also been determined. The results of various customer satisfaction surveys conducted of our customers and suppliers are reflected to the achievement criteria so as to quantitatively and objectively grasp the qualitative element, the degree of growth as a company.
In this way, at DISCO, our high esteem is embodied in the conduct of business activities through our business plans reversely formulated from our future state, the Vision, as opposed to the usual business plans that start from the current condition.
