To Create a Vibrant Environment for All Members of Society

Our Structure of Values and Policies

A "Vibrant Environment" represents an environment people aspire to achieve.
Through the construction business, employees must turn this aspiration into reality as a shared mission among employees, and the Taisei Group Philosophy must be passed on by and to employees of different generations.
For an enterprise to survive, it must continue to change itself to adapt in response to a changing society.
Meanwhile, we must always keep intact values about what to provide as "Something Important" to society. The Taisei Group Philosophy is designed to have all employees retain shared values and employees carry on those values from one generation to another.
In addition to demonstrating our values concerning customers and society as a whole, this group philosophy is intended to put employees’ values to the test.
It was the tragic Great East Japan Earthquake that put those values in the spotlight in relation to customers and society as a whole. The earthquake renewed a recognition of the construction industry’s role. We felt the need to recreate a vibrant environment for all members of society, due to the fact that we supported disaster victims’ lives through debris removal, road restoration work, and relocation of coastal residential zones to areas at a higher altitude.
In addition, I call on employees to turn their workplace into one where they can work with a sense of fulfillment as a "Vibrant Environment," while contributing to customers and society.
A "Vibrant Environment" will remain an environment that people in Japan and abroad always continue to pursue, even after their lives become more affluent in the future. I am convinced that the Taisei Group Philosophy we have established will continue to be universally valuable beyond the boundaries of eras and regions.

History of Management

1873
Kihachiro Okura Established Okura Gumi Shokai, the First Japanese Trading Company, Which Had Its Headquarters in Ginza, Tokyo, Japan

In addition to pursuing direct import businesses, the founder, Kihachiro Okura, engaged in the construction and operation of buildings, undertaking a series of pioneering projects. In 1946, the Company changed its corporate name to Taisei Corporation, becoming a non-family-controlled company, a rarity for construction companies at the time.

1956
Became the First Construction Company to List Its Shares on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Over-the-Counter Market

In 1956, Taisei Corporation became the first company to list shares on the exchange, a step taken because funding posed a challenge with the increasing scale of construction work and mechanization, at a time when orders were growing sharply due to the nation’s postwar economic rehabilitation.

1962
Completed Construction of Hotel Indonesia

This was our first post-war overseas project.
At the time this was the only international class hotel in Indonesia, so 30 years later in 1993 it was declared to be a historical asset of Jakarta City.

We established the new Management Philosophy of "To Create a Vibrant Environment for All Members of Society."
To turn a sustainable society into reality, we stepped up environmental activities.
