GMO Internet Group abolishes the recommendation to work from home two days a week in line with the complete abolition of measures against the new coronavirus

GMO Internet Group (Group Representative Masatoshi Kumagai) will completely abolish new coronavirus infection countermeasures such as “removal of internal partitions” and “removal of behavioral restrictions on partners (employees)” on February 6, 2023 (Monday). However, the wearing of masks has been made voluntary wherever possible.
With the complete abolition of these infection control measures, from February 21, 2023 (Tuesday), we will abolish the work system that had been recommended to “come to the office three days a week and work from home two days a week”. In principle, employees at each company should come to work. In addition, it is possible to use “weapons” to achieve higher results and planned work from home to reduce office rent and return it to partners.
By having all partners work face-to-face in the office, communication will be smoother than ever before, and we will create customers’ “smiles” and “impressions” by providing overwhelming No. 1 service. . [GMO Internet Group’s actions against the new coronavirus infection] (Reference URL:
■ Quick transition to remote work
In preparation for the spread of the new coronavirus infection in Japan, the GMO Internet Group quickly transitioned to a telecommuting system from Sunday, January 26, 2020. In addition, after that, we will follow our own standard “Issuance of countermeasures and response level in the event of a pandemic” (URL: /news/gmo_news_49.pdf), and changed the system for coming to work in accordance with the standards.
 Regarding occupational vaccination of the new coronavirus vaccine, on June 2, 2021 (Wednesday), we announced a policy for implementing occupational vaccination as a group, and have been the first among domestic companies to take measures to prevent infection with the new coronavirus.

From December 14th (Wednesday) to 20th (Tuesday), 2022, we will also conduct a questionnaire targeting group partners on the status and effects of wearing masks in the office regarding the relaxation of measures against new coronavirus infection. bottom. As a result, it was found that about 60% of the partners removed their masks in some way while working in offices with partitions. It became easier to hear,” “It became easier to convey facial expressions and information, it became easier to read,” and “Communication became more active.” In addition, in response to many positive voices for further relaxation of infection control measures, on February 6, 2023 (Monday), the new coronavirus infection control measures were completely abolished. At the GMO Internet Group, we have been seeking the best way for our partners to communicate with each other even during the COVID-19 pandemic, while incorporating the opinions of our partners. We believe that by abolishing the recommendation to work from home, communication within the company will become more active and smooth.
