Regarding mental health, we conduct employee stress checks every year based on the Industrial Safety and Health Act. In fiscal 2019, we conducted such checks on a total of 5,742 employees, or 89.3% of our workforce. Based on the results of the stress checks, we provide face-to-face guidance to people with high stress levels and opportunities for consultations to people with high stress levels who do not want face-to-face guidance. In addition, we also support improving stress level of each workplace by providing report on analyzed results.
At the same time, we are concerned that the environmental changes attributable to the pandemic present a major source of stress and worry for employees. To thoroughly support employees, we have released information on mental health issues at each stage of the pandemic on the Health Support Site of our internal information portal and conducted a web seminar for line managers on overseeing care that can be performed while working from home during the pandemic.
