This month, we launched our Group Information Notification Service for smartphones.
If you install this app, you will be able to see notifications from the company on your own smartphone.
To be known as “RIKO2”.
The function of RIKO2 is “Sumitomo Riko’s Employee Notification” and it means “RIKO to (2) employees to (2) RIKO”, and aims at doubling the performance, motivation, and curiosity of the entire company by sharing various company information”.
结合了“住友理工员工通知”和“RIKO to（2） 大家 to（2） RIKO”的意义，寄予了“共享各种公司信息，以使全公司的业绩稳步攀升、大家的积极性日益高涨、求知欲与日俱增等”的期望。
Reason for introduction 引进理由
When I have time, I often look around the plant by myself.
When I do, I often see piles of plant and union notice documents in the plant’s break room.
Last year, before the corona pandemic began, I was talking to a young technical worker on a drinking event, and asked him,
“Don’t you take those notice documents home with you to look at?”
“I wish I could see it on my phone”, he said to me, so I got a hint from his word.
And as soon as I became the president, I asked the relevant departments to consider the application.
There were many opinions, such as, “Why do you make employees pay communication fees to see the company’s notice?
But for me, I thought the official notice should be on paper as it has always been, and it was up to the individual to decide whether or not to read it.
I told them, “It’s our effort to get the information out there that employees want to see,” and they did as I requested.
As a result, we could realize reductions in paper distribution thereby cutting costs, which I thought matched the current trends.
I also went to the union office by myself to consult with them about the platform we had created, because I thought it would be a good idea for the union to use it as well.
As a result, the union was also very much in favor of this platform.
Next year, we hope to have a system that allows you to make your voice heard in the company.
I look forward to hearing from you.
How to use it 使用方法
Simply install and configure the app according to the instructions for use, which have been provided by the Information Systems Department.
It took me a little bit of time, but if you are familiar with smartphones, you can do it very quickly.
It seems to take a little time to apply for and be registered, but it is a very convenient system.
I encourage you to take advantage of this and browse it at your own convenience, such as during breaks or at home.
