Work-Life Balance

We intend to enhance our support systems to enable more efficient and flexible work styles so that all employees can maintain a healthy balance between their work and personal lives and continue to work with vitality and peace of mind.

Paid leave

As part of the reform of working patterns, the Labor Standards Act was revised in 2019, imposing obligations on companies regarding the use of paid leave by employees, and interest in taking paid leave has increased. Before the Act was revised, Oiles' labor and management collaborated to encourage employees to take paid leave. The average rate of annual paid leave taken by employees (full-time and contract employees( in FY2022 was 83.2%, which is well above the government target (70% by 2025).

Support Programs for Balancing Work and Childcare and Nursing Care

One of our efforts to support a sound work-life balance is enhancing our childcare and nursing care leave programs by introducing the following options. All eligible spouses have actively taken maternity leave, and the rate of taking this leave was over 95% in fiscal 2021.
