◆More than 90% feel that it has become easier to work due to telework. What is the reason?
[Image 1d2943-1096-f4a28e1b5d7f1cefca77-0.png&s3=2943-1096-ad9d1304a786af35ddea21e925902d8e-1985x2163.png
 First, we asked our employees about the ease of work after the standardization of the telework system and the super flextime system. 61.7% said, “It became much easier to work” and 28.3% said, “It became easier to work.” Together, it can be seen that 90% feel that telework and super flex have made it easier to work than before.
As reasons why it became easier to work, 86.7% said, “I have more time to work because I have less time to travel.” The top answer was 51.1%, making it easier to balance nursing care and work. It is presumed that the number of people who can achieve work-life management*2 is increasing because it is now possible to work without being bound by time or place, making it easier to coordinate with private time. On the other hand, 77.8% of those who answered that it became difficult to work said, “It became difficult to communicate because I did not understand the work situation of the person I work with.” There was also a voice that felt the challenges.
◆Nearly 90% of those who live with their families answered that they were able to spend more time with their families due to the new work style.
Communication such as “conversation” and “eating together” has increased! [Image 2d2943-1096-efe503d7ef569c1d8403-1.png&s3=2943-1096-974930c1e42025e28caa2b65885a5f22-1755x1357.png
Regarding changes in time spent with family, 75.1% “increased”, 0.7% “decreased”, and 24.2% “no change”. When narrowing down to those who answered that they are living with their family, nearly 90% of them answered that they have “increased,” indicating that there are many people who are spending more time with their family.
On the other hand, 66.2% of those who do not have family members living together answered “No change”, and 33.8% answered “Increase”. It is imagined that it will be difficult to visit family members who live far away, partly because of the call to refrain from going out due to the corona wreck, but some people say that it has become easier to call or email in the free response between work. I got several. [Image 3d2943-1096-8638a381fd4326b53c8a-2.png&s3=2943-1096-368110ed6b63829a705342b2b0ee368c-1569x784.png
In addition, when asked how they spent more time with their families, 82.5% of respondents answered “time to talk together on weekdays”, followed by “time to eat together on weekdays” at 77.4%. In the free-response survey, some male employees said that they began to cook meals because of the change in work style, and it seems that there is an effect that they can spend more time on housework. In addition, even if they do not live with their family, they can adjust their work hours to help care for their grandparents who live far away, or to temporarily telework at their parents’ home to create new time to spend together. I received a voice.
 There were many episodes that made me happy because I had more time with my family, so I’d like to introduce some of them.

From the results of this survey, we once again found that the telework system and the super flex system lead to improved working conditions and more time with family for many employees. Some people say that there are more smiles at home, and while we are happy to receive such effects, we feel that it is necessary to improve issues when it comes to making it difficult to work.
Based on the results of this survey, we will reconsider how to use these systems and their significance in the future. We aim to be the company of choice.
