3: Life-work balance
IDEC has replaced "work-life balance" with the concept of "life-work balance" to use as its motto. Some may wonder why we put "life" first. The decision to do so was closely related to "management with respect for humanity," a philosophy our company has remained faithful to since its founding. Encouraging each individual employee to lead a meaningful "life" is our priority and based on that, we believe "work" productivity will also increase. IDEC seeks to achieve a good "life-work balance" by implementing a summer vacation system that allows our employees to take up to nine consecutive days off, by encouraging our employees to use all of their paid vacation days, by offering paternity leave for our male employees, by offering maternity and child care support for our female employees, etc.
