Can you tell me about the working environment?

We have established systems necessary for career advancement, such as maternity leave, childcare leave, and shorter working hours for childcare.
Childcare leave can be taken until the child turns “3 years old,” and the shorter working hours system can be used until the child reaches “the fourth grade of elementary school.” At Astellas, we have created an easy working environment for both men and women to actively participate.

What is the working style?

At Astellas, evaluation is based on the role and performance of each and every employee. We have introduced working hours systems that allow employees to work in a variety of ways, including a flextime system, an off-site work system, and a discretionary work system. Many employees are covered by these systems, which allow some discretion in how they work.
In FY2020, we abolished the core time of the flextime system and shifted to the super flextime system.

Can you tell me about carrier development at Astellas?

By increasing the freedom of job selection, we support employees who want to grow with Astellas to realize their dreams.
The “In-house Recruitment System” is a common global system that enables employees to take on challenges in a timely manner. Employees can apply at any time, and if the needs of the recruiting department meet the needs of the applicant, they will be transferred to that department. In addition, the “In-house Internship Program” is a career development support program that provides opportunities for employees to take on challenges in new fields and to realize their personal aspirations. All employees are invited to participate in the program, enabling them to take on the challenge of “an experience that widens the possibilities of career development” while performing their regular duties. Every year, we help our employees develop their careers by providing them with opportunities to express their hopes for career development.
