In accordance with the Action Plan for the Realization of Work Style Reform that was formulated in March 2017, the Japanese government has been pushing the "Work-style Reform" in the recent months and will be submitting a bill on this in the upcoming Diet session.
While there are issues often picked up by the media, the Work-style Reform is a comprehensive policy involving many significant issues that could substantially alter the workplace. One such issue is how to secure a healthy workplace, which is not only beneficial in itself, but will also boost the productivity of employees. A healthy workplace is the key in raising the employees’ motivation, increasing productivity and boosting employee satisfaction, and thus, contributes to enhancement of employee retention.
How can these foreign policies be incorporated in Japan? How would this issue be positioned on the political agenda? How will this reform impact your business? A panel of international speakers will discuss the issues surrounding the Work-Style Reform, diving into the question of how to improve employees’ health and productivity and sharing their experience from overseas markets such as Europe and Latin America.
