Hello, my name is Tomo. I am an ordinary people who lives in Japan. Now I want to write down this blog what I noticed or worried about in my life. Today’s story is about remote work in Japan.
It’s a well-established ‘remote work’ here in Japan, but there are some differences between being able to stay at home and not being able to work at home depending on the type of occupation and work style.
Not long ago, Google announced that employees who want to continue working at home will reduce their salaries by up to 25%.
It is a nuisance to the remote workers, as it is said that IT giants ‘Facebook’ and ‘twitter’ will follow suit in the future.
Depending on the company, it was announced that it was trying to provide a better environment for employees by enhancing the use of the satellite offices and welfare services while you are remote worker. I am concerned about the influences of this announcement. I would like to keep an eye on how long the aftermath of the news will be.
In terms of equipment, some companies provide special payments such as remote worker allowances for example, buying desks or chairs or PC or notebook or tablet etc. The aim is to improve the working environment for employees because there is no commuting cost. Enriching welfare services also motivates them, so I think it’s best to be enriched.
I’m the manager of the company, so I think that welfare benefits for employees are important. There are many benefits services available, but the one I’m interested in recently is Perk provided by Wantedly(https://perk.wantedly.com/).
Since services in various fields such as health care, gourmet food, and hobbies can be used, there may be many merits for enterprise company. I would hear opinions from those who are using it.
I think that lack of exercise is a typical example of worries when you are staying at home, but there are also people who have lost weight. Since my calorie consumption routine has changed since I didn’t go out, I think it was a good opportunity to look into myself by recognizing my lack of exercise and working on improving my physical condition and constitution. You can say that.
I think it’s good mentally to have more time to spend at home because of the lack of commuting time. In particular, office workers often do not have time to invest in themselves out of 24 hours, so in that respect, even if you start learning something, start English conversation, spend time on self-development and new self-improvement It may be good.
If you have time to spare, why don't you try to improve yourself?
I wrote it indiscriminately, but I would like to make a miscellaneous note when I think of it. Thank you for your reading.
