Evaluation by a panel of judges consisting mainly of female students focused on job hunting. 
The judges do not give preferential treatment. The judges gave high marks to a company’s work philosophy and corporate culture, which highlights “not distinguishing between men, women, Japanese and non-Japanese; but to understand each individual’s background and specialties, and to respect each other by celebrating differences.”

Judge’s Award, Corporate Category
Yusuke Kamimura, President of ShapeWin comments on receiving the award:
We at ShapeWin have developed a work culture that celebrates differences between people and thinks positively about the enriching aspects of workplace diversity. It is our philosophy and policy that there is no consideration of employee classification (part-time, contract, full-time), gender, or nationality regarding salary increases or corporate hierarchy.

All work assignments and positions are determined based on the amount of contribution to the company per unit of time and the contribution to the development of the corporate culture. Because of this policy, we do not have the kind of culture that requires full-time and full-commitment work to become a manager, which is often the case in traditional companies. Rather than assigning heavy responsibilities to managers, we discuss the range of responsibilities that can be taken on, thereby realizing diverse ways of working and motivating forms of management.

The fact that the WOMAN’S VALUE AWARD  judges have appreciated our ideas and what we have done, has given us further confidence in our positive work culture philosophy. We are determined to continue our efforts to adapt to the times so that all employees can play an active role in the future.”
