TMEIC has created a system in which 1,000 staff members residing throughout Japan can work together.

Our staff, who are scattered from Hokkaido to Okinawa and even overseas, work on a telework basis, sometimes working on projects as a team of 3 to 15 home-based staff members. Meetings with clients can be held in person from home or via videoconference. We also use the "G Suite" cloud-based groupware calendar to coordinate videoconferencing times by sharing our staff's daily schedules such as "hospital visits" and "preschool pickups and drop-offs," and we use chat tools for asynchronous communication to promote collaboration across distances and individual work schedules.

Teleworking practice of the head office employees' freedom of choice.

In addition to sales outings and work in creative environments, remote work is also possible for any reason, including weather, physical condition, childcare, and nursing care, by simply adding "remote" to the schedule in the G Suite calendar, including weekly company-wide meetings, without the need to apply to a supervisor. By maximizing the use of videoconferencing and cloud tools to ensure internal communication, we are instilling an internal culture that produces results regardless of location.

eLifewill continue to support the marketing activities of various companies as a marketing professional that utilizes the perspectives of real consumers by creating an environment in which home-based staff and employees can focus on work that seamlessly creates value without being restricted by the location and time of caregivers and childcare.
