Work-life Balance

We make sure that our employees can maintain a work-life balance as they focus on work during the working hours and concentrate on their personal life after work, thereby enabling them to give their best ideas and performance. We implement the flexible time system, in which employees can select one out of five options for their working hours with the nine-to-five system as a default. We also run the company-wide simultaneous vacation system, a monthly or biweekly system where all employees can take a day off without worrying about troubling others. Employees are encouraged to go on parental leave to prevent the career interruption of female employees and enable them to show their capacity, regardless of whether they have children.

Employees’ Committee

The employees’ committee enables employees to express their opinions to the management in a bottom-up system and let them understand the direction of the company’s business. we subdivided the previously single committee into 12 groups for open communication and effective opinion sharing among all employees. With group leaders playing a key role, the committee is comprised of 12 group leaders and 85 members. Each group holds a regular meeting, and the representative employees’ committee implements various activities to improve the corporate culture, conduct company-wide campaigns, hold communication events with diverse themes, and give proposals for improvement.
