Offer to work 4 days a week in Japan
In Japan, it is suggested to work four days a week to balance work and private life.
The Japanese government has said that the one-day extra leave, which encourages employees to go out and spend money, will increase the cost of the three-day leave, which will boost the economy.
Japan has issued annual economic policy guidelines, including new recommendations that allow companies to work four days a week instead of five.
Under the Japanese government’s plan, companies will be able to retain capable and experienced staff who are trying to care for their families or elderly relatives.
The four-day-a-week work plan will also encourage staff to further their education and work part-time with permanent employment.
