Promotion of work-life balance
We implement initiatives to promote work-life balance and improve productivity among employees. We continue our efforts to shift to new work styles that will enhance the productivity of each employee and give them a sense of satisfaction in their work.
To realize a workstyle that is not restricted by time or place, we introduced a flextime system in the fiscal year ended September 2020. In addition, we discontinued core-time under the flextime system in the fiscal year ended September 2021 and we are working to further improve operational efficiency and the work-life balance by using flextime system in conjunction with the telework system.
In the fiscal year ended September 2020, we introduced a telework system. We are working to create an environment in which employees can continue working for many years by allowing each employee to choose his or her work location to the extent that there is no disruption to operations.
Shortened working hours for family care
The standard working hours per day can be reduced to 6 hours for up to 3 years from the start of use of the shortened working hours.
Family care leave
If a family member of an employee is in need of care, the employee can take up to a total of 93 days per subject family member.
Shortened working hours for childcare
The standard working hours per day can be reduced to 6 hours until the child reaches 3 years of age.
Employees can take this leave until their child reaches the age of one (up to the age of two if the child cannot be admitted to a nursery school). The rate of return from childcare leave is 100%. The acquisition rate of Childcare leave by male employees is also increasing year by year. In the fiscal year ended September 2022, 50% of the eligible employees (7 out of 14) obtained the Childcare leave.
