Encouraging male employees to take Childcare Leave

As a measure for promoting work-life balance, we work to increase the number of male employees who take Childcare Leave. We revised the leave systems for employees raising children or providing nursing care to their families and reached out to their superiors and the employees themselves. As a result, in 2016, five male employees took childcare leave and six took a leave of absence that may be taken for the purpose of childcare.


It was a valuable experience for the three of us to spend time together immediately after our baby was born. I wondered what to do on many occasions, because I had never raised a child before. However, my baby has been growing steadily, growing more active, more self-assertive, and more lovely day by day. I really appreciate my co-workers, who helped me to take Childcare Leave. Thank you very much.
