Update on Progress with Working Environment Reforms
⎯ 2020 Second-Quarter Results ⎯

August 4, 2020

Dentsu Inc. (hereinafter “the Company”) has been driving various reform measures since it announced the “Working Environment Reform Plan” on July 27, 2017. The initiative was developed jointly by management and employees, with input from external consultants.

The Company announced updates on the “Progress with Working Environment Reforms” once a year, until 2019. Starting this year, quarterly results are provided with additional information.

The quarterly results for disclosure include: The number of employees violating Article 36 of the Labor Standards Act (daily and monthly); total work hours per employee (quarterly); the hours in excess of statutory work hours per employee (monthly average); and the number of harassment consultations brought to the attention of the Company’s consultation desk (quarterly).
Reported annually are the total number of paid holidays taken per employee and the annual usage rate of statutory paid holidays per employee.

We will continue to drive our multifaceted and comprehensive reforms to both reduce working hours and improve business performance.

  • * The figures represent the number of consultations brought from offices throughout Japan to the harassment consultation desk set up in the Company’s Human Resources Division. The cases were not necessarily identified by the Company as instances of actual harassment. We will continue to increase employees’ awareness and create a favorable environment for them to speak up through staff training and the use of appropriate individuals at the consultation desk to end workplace harassment.

The next report is scheduled for late October or early November. It will cover the 2020 Q3 (July–September) results.
