■Background of the investigation
From April 2024, based on the Work Style Reform Act, a cap of 960 hours per year (excluding work on holidays) will be applied to overtime work for driving cars. At the same time, the “Improvement Standards Notification (Subject to Administrative Dispositions Based on the Freight Motor Transport Business Act)” which stipulates the length of time that truck drivers can be restrained, etc., will also strengthen the length of time they can be restrained (*).

■Comment from jinjer CPO (Chief Product Officer) Matsuba
[Image 8: https://prtimes.jp/i/89626/237/resize/d89626-237-4cab3f3ba0ee87e1236b-7.jpg&s3=89626-237-e42c9056746c59596a6ff7f9333d07e1-487×487.jpg] As of now, one month after the enforcement of the upper limit on overtime work, only about 30% of respondents say they are able to accurately tally their working hours. The way truck drivers work is very different compared to other industries. It is necessary to understand working hours by considering various points such as long hours of direct and direct transportation, waiting time for cargo, and detention time.
Against this background, demand is expected to increase for attendance management systems that can record time in real time using
smartphones, regardless of location, and for measures to improve employee engagement as part of human resources management.
Our company’s “Ginger” provides a wide range of services, including human resources management, attendance management, personnel evaluation, and e-learning. All of this can be centrally managed in “one database,” making it possible to quickly respond to legal changes while also preventing information discrepancies between multiple systems.
We will continue to develop this service so that we can provide valuable services to our users.
■What is the cloud-based human resources and labor system “Ginger”? “Ginger” is a cloud-based human resources and labor system that allows you to manage everything from routine human resources tasks such as personnel labor, attendance management, and payroll calculations to talent management such as personnel evaluations and e-learning. The Core HR Database, which integrates human resources information into one, supports efficiency and automation of routine tasks such as payroll calculations based on attendance totals and entry of forms related to social insurance procedures.
Additionally, since the databases of each system are connected, it is possible to automatically update the database and automate changes to privileges for each system in response to role changes.
