Casio appreciates the importance of work-life balance and is striving to create environments that accommodate diverse work-styles in a flexible manner. The company will continue to promote the establishment of systems and environments aimed at creating an environment where diverse human resources can work easily and display their maximum performance.
Introduction of telecommunicating, staggered commuting, and a “self biz” dress code
In 2020, Casio introduced telecommuting, staggered commuting, and a “self biz” dress code. Staggered commuting times serve to improve employees’ work-life balance to ensure they can concentrate on their work and maximize their performance. With the newly adopted “self biz” approach, dress code guidelines have been unified as well, giving employees the freedom to select the attire they feel is appropriate for the time, place, and occasion.
Introduction of sideline business and dual employment
Starting in March 2020, a system allowing sideline business and dual employment was introduced as a flexible approach to diverse ways of working. Restrictions on sideline business pursuits such as subcontracting arrangements or sole proprietorships outside working hours have been lifted for all employees, and dual employment with other companies for up to two days per week has been approved for employees over 50. The system is intended to improve employees’ skills, increase their autonomy/independence, and expand opportunities for them to flourish.
Helping employees balance work and parenting
Casio has introduced programs that enable employees under restrictions caused by parenting to feel at ease and to demonstrate their full potential on the job. The company has developed programs that help employees balance work and parenting, such as a shorter working hours system for childcare.
