Allowing Diverse Human Resources to Excel (Balanced Support)
Supporting Flexible Workstyles in Tune with Life Events
SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group introduces a variety of systems designed to enable employees to work flexibly in tune with life events and lifestyles.
As part of our childcare support measures, we undertake system upgrades that go beyond those stipulated under law. To encourage male employees to participate in childcare, the first five working days of childcare leave are paid, and we are advancing the use of a system for male employees whose children have just been born and their superiors.
As an initiative for nursing care support, we invited instructors from nursing care management organizations starting in fiscal 2019 to conduct nursing care training sessions on actual nursing care conditions and required knowledge.
In fiscal 2020, we established the Balanced Support website on the intranet to provide information on childcare and nursing care summarized in an easy-to-understand format.
Going forward, we will undertake measures to provide balanced support between illness and work.
