On December 13, 2018, an exchange of opinions was held between Takayuki Kawashima, Director of the NPO, Fathering Japan and the CEO of Kodikara Nippon, and five of the Company’s executives.
Nissui was able to confirm the current situation in which there was an increasing number of companies, regardless of industry and business category, promoting work style reforms, women empowerment, the correction of long working hours and work-life balance. In such circumstances, an exchange of opinions was conducted on the situation of the Company and its problems. Opinions expressed included, “Reforms in the attitudes of male managers that have hardened like clay and commitments to the reforms will be required” and “Superiors require the management capabilities to manage employees working under constraints."
