Human Resource Development Initiatives
In fiscal 2017, we adopted new systems aimed at helping women succeed professionally.
- A system to allow non-career-track employees to take division manager or assistant manager positions
- A system for rehiring employees who left the Company to accompany a spouse who was transferred to another location
Furthermore, in fiscal 2018, we began the following new initiatives.
- Extended eligibility for shortened working hours for childcare to the end of the child's third year of elementary school
- Individual staggered work hours until the child finishes elementary school
- Flexi-time system
