Fujitsu to reduce office space by 50% in Japan, encourage remote working

Monday 6 July 2020 | 09:58 CET | News
Fujitsu said that in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic, it will introduce a permanent new way of working for its employees, as part of its "Work Life Shift." Under the plan, the company will reduce its office footprint in Japan to 50 percent of its current levels by the end of 2022, and help 80,000 of the company's employees work mainly remotely. To help the process, the company will establish a "hot desk" system where employees are not assigned to a fixed desk and flexible hours of work will be expanded, starting from July.
