━━ About Well-being

The concept of well-being, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), encompasses being in a state of good physical, mental, and social condition. “Happiness” extends beyond mere physical health and includes the pursuit of emotional and social fulfillment. This concept has become integral in the management of companies that prioritize the well-being of their employees.

    Cardio machines and weights are available for free use. Our studio also offers personal training, yoga and boxing lessons (some require payment).
    We also offer massages, including oil massage and acupuncture, at reasonable prices, allowing for tailored treatments based on individual conditions.

  • Childcare Free Time System

    Childcare Free Time System Shorter work hours, same pay

    We strive to enable employees to find a happy balance between childcare and work. To support this, we have implemented the Free Time system, which allows employees to take time off on a monthly basis. The number of work days in a month multiplied by one hour can be freely used as paid time for childcare purposes. Employees have the flexibility to choose whether to work one hour less each day or accumulate their free time for later use.

    ◇ Examples of use
    For instance, if an employee starts work at 9:00 a.m. and finishes at 5:00 p.m., the actual working hours would amount to 7 hours. However, if the 1-hour Free Time System is utilized, the actual working hours would be considered as 8 hours.
    The use of Free Time does not have any negative impact on salary. We strive to provide an environment where employees can focus on their work and childcare with ease and comfort.

HR System (Employee Review)

Our HR system is comprised of three elements: the “Grade System,” “Evaluation System,” and “Reward System” based on Cocone’s “calling” and “lifestyle.”

  • Grade System

    The grade system is defined by expected contributions in a certain role, stages of development, and skill measurements.

  • Evaluation System

    Twice a year, evaluations are conducted to assess self-growth and contribution to the company, business, and team. These evaluations are based on grade definitions that are standardized across the entire company, as well as job-specific definitions.
    Salaries are revised annually, taking into account company performance and employee evaluations.

  • Reward System

    To prioritize the happiness and health of our employees, we have implemented a comprehensive annual salary system that includes a base salary, a deemed overtime allowance, and various bonuses based on performance.

With our HR system, we capture employee contributions in their various roles and aim for the system to facilitate employee growth in sync with company development.
