Results that can be expected to improve labor performance
Developing 168 stores (* 1) nationwide, sales / number of stores (* 2), No. 1 (* 3) beauty hair removal salon “Muse Platinum” is a non-profit organization Japan Uterus In cooperation with the Conference on Membrane Disease Enlightenment (hereafter, JECIE), we conducted a “menstrual survey” for all employees in the “Women’s Active Participation and Health Management Project” that started in February 2019. Following 2019 and 2020, this will be the third implementation. . Through the menstruation training we have conducted for employees and the dissemination of menstruation-related
information to all employees, including male employees, we have had the effect of improving the rate of gynecological consultations and the rate of taking pills, etc., and employee behavior. I have found that there is a transformation.
This project started in 2019 jointly with JECIE in order to realize opportunities for women to be more active. We conduct educational activities related to menstruation for approximately 3,500 Musee Platinum employees.
In fiscal 2021, JECIE Chairman Momoeda provided an explanation at Musee Platinum salons nationwide, and held a “physiology training” using a video summarizing employees’ menstrual-related concerns and actual experiences. Including an episode based on the actual experience of an employee who had menstrual-related problems such as menstrual pain and PMS, voluntarily consulted a gynecologist after receiving menstruation training, which led to an improvement in symptoms. , Commentary on symptoms by specialists, measures for menstrual symptoms that can be done in the salon, etc.
Introduced in the training video. We provided an opportunity for employees to improve their basic literacy and think for themselves. In addition, for a certain period of time after completing menstrual training, we conducted a “menstrual survey” to investigate changes in employee behavior. As a result of the survey, it was found that an increasing number of employees are taking actions such as seeing a gynecologist and taking pills, etc., in order to resolve the obstacles to work caused by menstrual pain and PMS due to heightened health awareness. In addition, by increasing the number of employees with correct knowledge, it is expected that they will be able to
objectively look at their own health conditions, so that menstrual problems will be resolved in the future, and it will be possible to contribute to both personal and professional performance and lifelong health. Expected.

Survey method: Internet survey
Survey target: Musée Platinum female employees
Number of participants: 1st: 2,489 in 2019
Second time: 2,595 people in 2020
3rd time: 2,424 people in 2021

The rate of people who have problems with work due to “menstrual pain” has decreased by about 10% since 2019, and the number of employees who have no trouble with “menstrual pain” has increased by taking actions such as gynecological examinations by improving health literacy! In a survey asking people with symptoms of menstrual pain, “Do you put up with your stomach pain during menstruation, which interferes with your work?”, 70.8% of those who answered “yes” in 2019. , “58.5%” in 2020 and “62.0%” in 2021. Approximately 60 to 70% of employees are always suffering from menstrual pain, but compared to 2019 when the survey started, it decreased by about 10%. I learned that it is necessary for a company to create an environment that makes it easier for employees who have trouble with their work due to menstrual pain to see a gynecologist.
In addition, the percentage of people who answered “no problem” in all questions about menstrual pain, suspected organic disease, and excessive menstruation was “2.5%” in 2019, “6.9%” in 2020, and “8.5%” in 2021. This has led to an increase in the number of employees who do not have problems with their work due to menstrual pain or excessive menstruation, as they have improved their health literacy by gaining correct knowledge through menstrual training and have taken action such as visiting a gynecologist. did.
Understanding of PMS has deepened and about 80% are aware of PMS symptoms! An increase in the number of employees who can objectively see their own symptoms
In the 2019 survey, the number of people with PMS symptoms was “76.8%”, “80.2%” in 2020, “77.6%” in 2021, and PMS symptoms were about 80% over the past three years. In recent years, there have been more opportunities to learn about PMS, but I realized that it is necessary to share knowledge one step ahead, such as understanding that there are individual differences in symptoms and how to improve PMS symptoms.
Also, when asked if PMS interferes with work, the answer was “75.4%” overall in 2019, but slightly increased to “80.9%” in 2021. By increasing the number of employees who can objectively see, it is thought that there is a tendency to improve PMS symptoms.
The number of employees who consult a gynecologist has increased by more than 20%!
The gynecological examination rate of all symptomatic people who are aware of menstrual pain, excessive menstruation, and PMS symptoms has increased by about 5% compared to 2020, and will be “25.4%” in 2021. Overall, the number of employees who visited a gynecologist due to menstrual pain or excessive menstrual symptoms increased year by year from 16.5% in 2019 to 17.7% in 2020 and 23.1% in 2022. I can see that the staff are taking proper precautions. As for PMS, the number of employees who have undergone gynecological examinations has gradually increased to 9.7% in 2019, 11.2% in 2020, and 15.4% in 2021, and as a result of continuing these activities. is thought to appear. It is also expected to improve performance by improving QOL and QOWL by improving menstrual pain, excessive menstruation, and PMS symptoms. [Image 3
The rate of taking pills, etc. has increased to about four times the average in Japan
When we asked employees who were aware of menstrual pain, excessive menstruation, and PMS symptoms and were visiting a hospital, ‘Are you taking the pill continuously for the past year?’, 178 people in 2019. “7.5%”, 193 in 2020, “7.4%” of the total, 277 in 2021, and “11.4%” of the total employees were found to be taking pills. did. This result is thought to be due to the increase in the number of employees who have taken an interest in menstruation and their own health through menstruation training and have taken measures such as visiting a gynecologist.
Furthermore, compared to the average rate of taking pills in Japan of “2.9%” (Contraceptive Use by Method 2019), it was about four times as much.
Musee Platinum will continue to work with JECIE to improve women’s menstrual-related diseases. We will create a future where we can expect long-term success and further customer satisfaction.
