Recently, while more and more women are entering into the workforce, they leave their jobs for childbirth at a high rate, which has become a social issue. We launched the “Mother Recruitment” program in fiscal year 2017 to hire experts who left their jobs for child care. Six people were hired by June 2018 and they are working for legal, finance, real estate and other divisions using their expertise and skills.
We opened the “JFR Women’s School” in fiscal year 2018 for short-time workers of the Group who keep working while raising children. They aim to continuously enhance their career by acquiring time management and leadership skills, financial knowledge and others to perform at their best within a limited time.
From the perspective of ease of working, various systems are in place as listed below and we will improve such systems and take measures to help women perform better and increase productivity.
