Respect for the individual
The three pillars of Showa’s philosophy of “Respect for the Individual” are: trust, fairness, and independence.
“Trust” means to build a mutually respectable relationship where one always considers others and respects the opinions and situations of others in good faith.
“Fairness” means that, given that everyone is equal, every individual is given equal opportunity, regardless of his/her individual attributes such as nationality, gender, or educational background.
“Independence” means to act according to one’s freely held ideas and beliefs with passion and responsibility in a trusting and fair environment.
