This program was established in 2017 to honor corporations, including large corporations and small- and medium-sized enterprises, that practice excellent health management based on initiatives that align with local health issues and health promotion efforts promoted by the Japan Health Council. The program aims to create an environment in which corporations can be socially recognized as corporations that consider the health management of their employees from a managerial perspective and are strategically engaged in such management.

ROHM has also set Ensuring the Health and Safety of Employees as one of the Sustainability Priority Issues necessary for sustainable growth.
