Fujitsu to rollout telework system starting April
Fujitsu is launching an initiative to transform the way its employees work, seeking to allow each and every person to create value given their limited time.
The initiative's aims are to strengthen its global competitiveness, achieve digital innovation, and improve the work-life balance of employees.
As part of this initiative, Fujitsu is officially implementing "Telework System" in Japan from April 2017, using ICT tools such as virtual desktops and its Global Communications Platform.
This system will apply to all of the approximately 35,000 employees of Fujitsu Limited in Japan, enabling a flexible way of working, without being confined to a specific location, whether from home, a satellite office, on a business trip, or in transit.
In addition to transforming its internal systems, beginning with telework, Fujitsu will use ICT and will work to transform the mindsets of its management and each employee, in order to bring about a new way of working that delivers high productivity.
In addition, Fujitsu will use the experience and insights gained through this internal implementation to contribute to a transformation in the way its customers work, from planning their transformations, to implementing solutions and handling operations.
Recently, due to such shifts as the progress of globalization and changes in labor structure, there has been an increasing demand for flexible ways of working, focused
on the active participation of diverse personnel.
In response to this changing environment, Fujitsu has promoted the development of programs to mobilize to the fullest the capabilities and creativity of each
employee, given their limited time available. One example is an initiative that provides actual support for employees to engage in both work duties and childcare
or other kinds of family care, put in place in 2010.
In addition, Fujitsu has been increasing its use of ICT, such as in the implementation of its Global Communications Platform since 2011, including in Fujitsu Group companies outside Japan.
