Idemitsu has analyzed its issues and considered specific measures to address them. We formulated the following action plan with the aim of supporting employees who strive to balance work and life.
In May 2020, we published a guidebook for internal use to help all employees easily understand its work-life balance support programs and systems. The book details the actions needed to be taken just prior to childbirth, childcare, and caregiving; how superiors should respond; and what your coworkers can help. The book also contains basic knowledge all workers should have and what work styles will be like going forward.
In June 2019, we held a seminar for 110 managers who have subordinates who had returned to work from childcare leave and who had newborn babies. At the seminar, the participants shared management skills for employees with restricted working hours as well as examples of problem solving at workplace. Going forward, while providing seminars and workshops for child-rearing employees and their superiors, we will continue to work on creating an environment where superiors can understand the relevant employees as well as the employees can balance their work and childcare.
