[Good Couple’s Day & Labor Thanksgiving Day] When I thanked my working mom, who did she thank?
[Working mom survey report] ~ 1st place “husband”, 2nd place “children”, 3rd place “colleagues” ~
Mama Square Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo / President Satoshi Fujishiro, hereinafter referred to as Mama Square) is a company in its 20s to 40s with children under elementary school age in advance of Good Couple Day and Labor Thanksgiving Day in 2022. We conducted an awareness survey on “feelings of gratitude” for working mothers. As a result, when working mothers want to express gratitude at work, the first place is “husband”, the second place is “children”, and the third place is “colleagues”. At work, it became clear that I appreciated my colleagues.
[Table 2: https://prtimes.jp/data/corp/17571/table/85_1_6c551e63d51b648c5957741fa0c9776b.jpg ]
In recent years, the percentage of working mothers has been on the rise, so Labor Thanksgiving Day can be said to be a day to express gratitude to working mothers who strive to balance work, housework, and childcare. . In this survey, about 80% of working mothers answered that they have been thanked by someone for their work. The result is that the person who is doing it is also “husband”. In addition to economic reasons, there are many reasons for emotional support, such as support and understanding. We know that mutual cooperation is important. In addition, many of the people who answered “children” as people they want to be grateful for tended to be grateful for the existence of their children, such as being able to work hard because they have children. In order for working mothers to be active in companies and continue working for a long time, it is presumed that it is necessary to prepare an environment and systems that are conscious of the support of “family”.
◆Who are you grateful to?
For working mothers, the number one person they want to thank is their husband, the second is their child, and the third is their colleague. When limited to work-related people, “boss” and “colleague” are almost evenly ranked first. When limited to private matters, the third most common response, following husbands and children, was “my parents.” [Image 2

Many working moms want to thank their husbands for being “cooperative with housework and childcare” and “supporting their work”, and for their children, they are “appreciative of their very existence”. For colleagues, “being able to sympathize with work and worries” leads to gratitude.
