Work-life BalanceSustainability

We aim to ensure that all our employees, both men and women, show their abilities to the fullest in manners that are appropriate for various life events. We have established a Flexible Working Hours System without core time, as well as holidays and paid leave programs, so that employees raising children or providing nursing care to their families can continue working while achieving a balance between work and family. We also provide employees on Maternity Leave or Childcare Leave with support for education/training so that the period of their leave will not be a blank period in their career trajectory.
