JVCKENWOOD recognizes long working hours as a major problem that could harm the health of employees or even endanger their lives. Therefore, we are making active efforts to eliminate long working hours, such as by checking the working hours of all employees each month and providing feedback to their managers through the activities of the Safety and Health Committee.
With regard to remote working that has been expected to serve as one of the solutions to long working hours and acceleratingly established because of the COVID-19 crisis, we provide training for managers toward realizing appropriate labor management including measures against long hours of work.
Through these measures, the average annual hours actually worked per worker for the company, which stood at 1,986 hours in fiscal 2017, declined to 1,875 hours in fiscal 2020. We will make company-wide efforts to enable employees to stay physically and mentally healthy and motivated to work by both objectively recognizing their working hours and thoroughly implementing labor management, including PC log management, following the rapid expansion of remote working.
