Employees Encouraged to Take Vacation Entitlements
It is crucial that employees are able to refresh themselves through vacation. Doing so helps fuel their ability to approach each new task with vigor, apply their strengths to achieve outstanding results, and generate new ideas.
Dentsu provides various vacation and leave systems for employees, who are encouraged to take their full vacation entitlements. In addition to regular annual paid vacation, the Company each year grants employees two consecutive days off that can be used to take vacations of five or more days by combining them with Saturdays, Sundays, national holidays, annual paid vacation, and compensatory days off. In April 2010, Dentsu introduced a system to take annual paid vacation in hour increments, enabling a flexible way of working. The Company has also created a system whereby "culture leave" is granted separately to employees who are invited to compete in skiing, American football, and other sports events at national or international levels.
To create a workplace environment in which it is easy to take vacations, a 'WLB planning chart' is posted each quarter at all workplaces so that information on vacation schedules can be shared among employees.
