A number of measures have been adopted to deal with extended work hours, including no overtime days (twice a month), management of overtime work (monthly), and regularizing the reporting of the number of employees who have engaged in long hours of work and their departments to meetings of company officers. TOPPAN FORMS focuses especially on raising the awareness of managers, promoting the development of an environment where employees can work in good physical and mental conditions, including work-hour management and stress check workshops.

4. TOPPAN FORMS promotes “health-oriented management” outside the company
TOPPAN FORMS has increased the number of opportunities for the presentation/consultation of its promotion structure for health-oriented management and the main measures and programs that are implemented outside the company, including clients and outside organizations/corporations.
