Well-being Management

Our greatest strength is our employees. There is no other strength greater than our people. Our company’s goal is to prosper together with all business partners, readers of our media, and the society and environment around us. To achieve this goal, we bring together a diverse group of employees, ensuring that all of them stay healthy and safe both physically and mentally, and each of them is able to fully demonstrate their individuality and abilities.

Initiatives for Well-being Management

Working Style and Working Place

  • Full remote work available
  • Flextime system available
  • Shorter working hours to suit individual lifestyles
  • Efforts to reduce overtime work
  • Have a break room and indoor plants in the office

Employees can reduce commute time through remote work. Through the flextime system and efforts to curb overtime work, each employee works efficiently and is able to use their spare time for exercise and leisure on weekdays. In addition, even for full-time employees, we offer a variety of work styles that suit each lifestyle, such as shortened working hours and four-day work week system.

Physical Health

  • Regular health checkups (100% done)
  • Medical checkups for female-specific cancer (fully subsidized)
  • Zero smokers
  • Subsidized gym memberships

Employees can undergo a health checkup once a year at 100% company expense. In addition, in order to prevent cancer specific to women, the costs of cervical cancer and breast cancer examinations are 100% covered by the company. We also subsidize the use of sports gyms to promote daily health.

Mental Health

  • Provide employee satisfaction surveys
  • Establishment of an external consultation service

In order to promote communication among internal members, we offer lunch meet-ups where teams are decided by lottery, Peer Bonus system where staff can exchange points, and an online chat room for casual conversations. We have created an environment that makes it easy for staff to express their opinions, even outside the members and teams they are involved with on a daily basis, such as employee satisfaction surveys and external consultation desks.

Countermeasures Against Infectious Diseases

  • Subsidized influenza vaccinations (employees and their children)
  • Prevention of COVID-19

We also emphasize measures against infectious diseases, and subsidize the cost of influenza vaccination not only for the staff themselves but also for the children they raise. In addition, thermometers, disinfectant alcohol sprays, masks, etc. are available in the office. It is also possible to work completely remotely while refraining from going out due to anxiety about infectious diseases.
