Fujikura Ltd. has a system to allow employees to use their paid holidays for which the two-year entitlement period has expired up to 100 days if they become ill or need to take leave for their family in need of nursing care. In April 2015, the company added local community/social contribution (volunteer) activities to the activities for which employees can use such holidays.
The activities for which employees can use the aforementioned holidays now include volunteer activities for disaster victims, organ donor-related activities (registration and actual donation), welfare activities for people with disabilities and the elderly, contributions to local disaster and crime control, and youth training and education.
