Actions for Well-Being at LIFULL
We have divided employee self-care based on intrinsic motivation into three pillars: Learn, Check and Support.
We offer seminars held by professionals for employees to gain insights on how to better care for their physical and mental health.
- Lectures on How to Interpret the Results of Physical Examinations
We created and shared a video of an industrial physician explaining how to interpret each of the results of employees' physical examinations for employees to view.
- Topic Seminars (Nutrition, Sleep, Smoking, Mental Health)
Seminars are held on a variety of important topics which affect employee well-being by an industrial physician.
By regularly measuring the physical, mental and engagement of our employees and providing feedback, we are able to clarify individual issues and their causes and take necessary actions.
- Physical Examinations
As physical examinations provide a major premise for maintaining and improving health on a regular and quantitative basis, we have set the target for 100% of employees to receive them regularly. In addition to the legal diagnostic items, we also provide information on optional examinations for the early detection of potential illnesses.
- Managing Employee Working Time
To ensure that managers have adequate insight into and can effectively manage the working times of their teams, we provide them with monthly reports. Representatives from the Human Resources department also send warnings to teams with particular issues.
- Engagement SurveyWe conduct Employee Engagement Surveys twice a year to quantify employee well-being which serve as important indicators of engagement and overall well-being management of the Company. Members of the Human Resources department work closely with departments and teams with lower scores to resolve any organizational issues and proactively prevent employee stress.
- Well-Being Surveys
We have implemented monthly questionnaires to assess employee well-being. Employees can easily contact members of Human Resources through the questionnaire system, and representatives from Human Resources reach out and support employees whose scores drop in a given month.
- Stress Checks
We conduct monthly employee stress checks. The results of these check are regularly reported to manage to resolve any potential issues. Individuals identified as having high-stress levels are offered the opportunity to speak with a medical professional to help proactively improve their mental health.
We provide following opportunities for employees to take the necessary steps to maintain and improve their health.

We offer opportunities every month to consult with industrial physicians or nurse practitioners on health issues for employees who desire. Topics are not limited to mental and physical conditions, but can also be for advice on how to stay healthier in everyday life. Medical professionals also give advice on how to work with and accommodate team members with ailments.
- Coverage of Expenses for Gynecological Exams
We partially cover costs for gynecological examinations such as for cervical or breast cancer, ovaries and uterus.
- Measures Against Infectious Diseases (Influenza, COVID-19)
We offer annual influenza vaccinations in its offices and covers the cost for employees.
Employees receiving a vaccine for COVID-19 on a regular work day, the time spent for the vaccination is counted as working time. If the employee experiences any side effects of the vaccine, we provide an extra day of paid leave for their recovery. Employees accompanying family members for vaccinations also receive extra paid leave.
- Returning to Work Program (re:START)
We have started a program to relieve some of the stress, dissatisfaction and inconvenience many new mothers experience after maternity and childcare leave by having experienced mothers support new mothers for six months after coming back to the office.
- Support for Employees Taking Leave for Serious Illnesses
We provide support to individuals returning to work through the collaboration of industrial physicians, nurse practitioners, Human Resources and other team members.
Employees can continue to hold consultations with medical professionals after returning until they feel comfortable working in their positions again.
