Creating a culture of diversity 

MOL Group positions diversity and inclusion, including the promotion of women’s participation, as a “new driving force for growth” and places it at the core of its human resource strategy, creating a framework that enables the creation of new value by combining the diverse personalities and abilities of each and every employee worldwide.

By supporting the seven principles of WEPs, the group will continue to communicate and create a culture of diversity and inclusion in Japan and overseas so that each and every employee can maximize their potential and realize our corporate philosophy, “From the blue oceans, we sustain people’s lives and ensure a prosperous future.”
