Aiming for a workplace environment that is comfortable to work in

As households where both husband and wife work are increasing, both men and women require a lifestyle that allows them to balance their work with a home life and child-raising. For a company, creating a system that allows work and home to be balanced easily enriches the lives of its employees and improves their motivation for work. However it is not enough just to create a system for easy balance. At the same time, a review of working styles and a change in awareness are also important. Based on an understanding that increasing male participation in child-raising can lead to improved work productivity of the men themselves, and also to greater participation by women in the companies, KASHIWABARA CORPORATION is constructing an environment which facilitates male participation in child-raising.
