The current spread of the coronavirus is affecting the economy worldwide. As part of preventive measures, the Rakuten Group has been recommending to employees to work from their homes, and Rakuten Group employees have found very creative ways to further enhance productivity when working from home.
In this video, originally produced for an internal audience, we share some uniquely Rakuten initiatives devised by employees, all of which can be linked back to the basic principles of Rakuten Shugi.

 Issues often arise regarding working from home, for instance, difficulties in communication due to lack of face-to-face communication, concerns over inefficiencies that arise with web meetings, and the lack of exercise from staying at home all day. Rakuten Group employees have found very creative ways to further enhance productivity when working from home.

  • Promoting physical and mental health
  • Creating a comfortable work environment
