Creating pleasant working environments and developing diverse human resources
Creating Worker-friendly Workplaces
Progress in Initiatives Advanced by Work-life Balance Promotion Office
We believe promoting work-life balance is an important issue. The Work-Life Balance Promotion Office, established in January 2014 as a unit that reports directly to the President, promotes diverse working styles.
To accompany our in-place system for requesting vacation in increments as small as half a day, we introduced the "refresh" vacation system in April 2015, and as a result, the usage rate for paid vacation days climbed to 70.1% in fiscal 2015, a sharp jump from a 33.0% rate in fiscal 2014.
Since April 2016, we further refined our vacation system so employees can request vacation in increments as small as one hour. We believe this will enable employees to adopt even more diverse working styles.
Introducing an at-home telework system for employees who are raising children or taking care of family members, we will work to build workplaces where each individual can fully harness their capabilities and potential.
Developing Diverse Human Resources
In addition to our human resource development system, a cross-divisional training program commenced in fiscal 2014 aimed at bolstering the entire organization as part of an initiative to improve our vertical organizational structure.
In fiscal 2015, a total of 280 employees--core representatives from each division and department--came together over three sessions to share information, exchange views, and propose new initiatives that extend beyond the boundaries of our organizational chart. The training sessions focused on renewing mutual understanding of tasks across divisions and departments, intra-company interaction, work-life balance, labormanagement problems, and the like.
Employee Training System
The regular training system is essentially split along two lines: training according to employee rank and training according to division. The former is designed to enable all employees to obtain the knowledge and capabilities they need in a series of stages. The latter is aimed at enabling employees to polish their expertise and thus improve customer satisfaction.

Training with Specified Purposes
We provide regular training as necessary for specified purposes such as mental health training, compliance training, work-life balance training, and training on how to promote female participation in the workplace.
Promoting Employment of Disabled People
With the aim of promoting the use of diverse human resources and creating a workplace that also motivates the disabled with a sense of larger purpose, we have taken steps to hire disabled employees.
In 2009, Leopalace Smile Co., Ltd. was established as a special subsidiary to employ more of the disabled, and we now have 25 disabled employees.
In fiscal 2015, the Elderly Care Business at the parent company achieved an annual average disabled employee ratio of 2.06%, and from fiscal 2016, we will continue to advance initiatives ahead of the scheduled 2018 revision to the statutory employment rate set by the law promoting employment of the disabled.
