Support for balancing career and childcare

We are introducing various systems that enable employees with childcare responsibilities to continue to actively participate in their work.

Main initiatives to support balancing career and child care that go beyond the mandatory levels*

  • Day-care center subsidies for employees who return to work during an early stage from their child care leave
  • Shortened work hours for child care (shortening of work hours up to six hours per day, until the end of the first year of elementary school)
  • Paternity leave system for male employees (paid-leave of 5 consecutive days)(Target 100%)
  • Hourly use of accumulated annual leave (for child care /nursing care)
  • Leave-system for employees obligated to leave work to accompany their spouses’ overseas transfers
  • Return-to-work program for employees resigning due to childbirth, child care, nursing care, etc.
  • Childbirth leave for spouse (within three days)

Support before and after child care leave

We support employees of both genders before and after childcare leave with the aim to improve their work-life management through interviews and seminars that provide communication opportunities. Additionally, we hold seminars for employees returning to work from child care leave, have gatherings for working mothers, and offer various discussion sessions regarding balancing careers and child care.

Information service

We provide a variety of information on work-life management, including the company's system, at the “Handbook on balancing work and childcare” and on the portal site.

Support for participation of men in child care and housework

Oji Group also promotes the participation of men in housework and child care. We are aiming for their 100% usage of child care leave of five consecutive days or more until the child reaches age one, and are promoting this goal through roundtable discussions and seminars.

Company-managed childcare facility

The Group operates Nepia SODATERASU, a nursery located adjacent to a Group housing facility in Edogawa-ku, Tokyo, with the aims of helping employees maintain a balance between childcare and work, promoting the active participation of women in their works, and contributing to the elimination of unattended children as a part of our corporate social responsibility.

The name “SODATERASU,” embodying the three meanings of “sodate [to raise children] (carefully and soundly),” “terasu [illuminate] (the future brightly),” and “terrace (safe play on the nursery school playground),” stands for nursery school where children are raised with cheerfulness and peace of mind. The nursery school is available for use by local residents as well, with the use of child care support systems implemented by the Cabinet Office.
