SECOM’s Philosophy has been passed down through generations of employees since our establishment and continues to be the driving force behind all we do. This philosophy emphasizes a refusal to be content with the status quo and a commitment to doing what is appropriate. The first element expresses our determination to provide innovative services and systems by challenging accepted norms, while the second means judging the legitimacy of our actions by examining whether they are just, fair and beneficial not only to SECOM but to society as a whole. The efforts of our employees to act in compliance with this philosophy have nurtured a uniquely SECOM identity, while our ability to provide high-grade, distinctive services has given us a sharp competitive edge and remains the major driving force behind our growth and evolution.
Furthermore, in order to obtain trust from our customers and other stakeholders, SECOM complies with laws and the spirit of laws. We have also established the SECOM Employee Principles and the Code of Conduct, guidelines which are even stricter than applicable laws.
“The Constitutions of SECOM’s Business and Operation”
The basis for all decisions by the Company is SECOM’s fundamental philosophy of “contributing to society through our business activities.” We have defined operation policies that must be followed by the SECOM Group.
“SECOM’s Ten Fundamental Management Policies”
Based on “The Constitutions of SECOM’s Business and Operation” we have defined our ideal attitude and ways of thinking as basic principles for our business to constantly maintain an innovative organizational culture, and to continually exist as a clear and transparent business entity with the aim of realizing the Social System Industry vision.
“SECOM’s (Ten) Principles”
Based on the SECOM’s principles of conduct which the Company has refined since our founding in 1962, we have defined shared principles for achieving the growth of the SECOM Group and the human growth of our employees.
“SECOM Group Code of Employee Conduct”
In addition to “The Constitutions of SECOM’s Business and Operation,” and “SECOM’s (Ten) Principles,” we have established universal compliance principles which are effective in any era. “The SECOM Group Code of Employee Conduct” defines the ideal attitude of all employees in the SECOM Group and compliance concepts which are the foundation for all types of operations, as well as principles for relationships between society, customers, suppliers, etc., and specific behavioral standards that require compliance.
Sharing principles through the SECOM’s Philosophy
All employees receive a handbook that contains the SECOM’s Philosophy which has been refined as the fundamental concepts since our founding, ideal form, and principles of conduct for the SECOM Group, together with “The Constitutions of SECOM Group’s Business and Operation,” and “SECOM’s Ten Fundamental Management Policies,” etc. The handbook is fondly nicknamed “Shirohon,” meaning a white book, among our employees.
Each chapter of the SECOM’s Philosophy is introduced at the beginning of every issue of the company newsletter “SECOMITY” in order to facilitate the sharing and implementation of principles.

SECOM’s Philosophy expanding throughout the world
In order to provide our overseas customers with the same high level of safety and peace of mind which we provide in Japan, it is not enough to simply perform work in accordance with manuals and rules. Instead, it is important to work based on an understanding of why such fundamental concepts are necessary.
Therefore, we translated the SECOM’s Philosophy and the SECOM Group Code of Employee Conduct into languages spoken in each country we operate in order to instill these important concepts into each employee in our organization.
The “SECOM’s Philosophy” etc., are translated into various languages.
