Work-Life Balance

Supports to Child Caring and Nursing

Clarion has set up a “Childcare Leave System,” a “Nursing Leave System,” a “Vacation Deposit System” and a “Temporary Leave System during Spouse’ Assignment Abroad” in order to ensure environments and working conditions for employees needing to take care small children and/or older family members to balance their roles at work and at home.

Furthermore, in response to the Law for Measures to Development of the Next Generation, we laid out action plans and promote awareness raising at education and training sessions for each segment. We are proceeding with further improvement of the system in view of diversification.
