Work-Life Balance

In an effort to improve work efficiency and productivity, and promote work-life balance, we have adopted a flexible working hours system and work from home. The flexible working hours is being operated on a four- week basis which allows employees to coordinate their working hours according to their schedules, adhering to 40 working hours a week instead of 8 working hours a day. Furthermore, we put in place a range of family- friendly policies, such as childbirth leave, childcare leave, and shorter working hours. In addition, we operate a workplace daycare center to assist employees in relieving their childcare burdens, and provide financial assistance for their child education, which reduces the burdens of education expenses.
