Proposals from the "Survey on Work-Eldercare Balance (2012)"

The aim of this research is to examine the anxiety of employees mainly aged 40 or above relating to the balance between work and eldercare and the level of their awareness of support measures taken in the workplace and, anticipating the coming of a time when the number of employees achieving a work-eldercare balance will increase, to clarify what kind of information and support companies should provide.

Based on the research results, we set out the issues that companies should address in order to support a balance between employees’ work and eldercare.

Summary results from the "Survey of Manager’s Work Style and Work-Life Balance (2010)"

"Survey on Work Styles and Work-Life Balance" showed that in a workplace where managers are kept extremely busy, managers themselves are not able to achieve a WLB lifestyle. Additionally, it clarified that the current state of workplace management as created by managerial staff is key for the creation of WLB. Based on these results, the “Survey of Manager’s Work Style and Work-life Balance” has focused on managers. The objective is to clarify the current state of workplace management that supports a manager’s work style and their employees’ ability to achieve WLB.
