Company will give non-smoking employees 6 extra days off
The change in company policy is meant to encourage staff to quit smoking.
A 2016 report examining karoshi cases and their cause of death found that more than 20% of people in a survey of 10,000 Japanese workers said they worked at least 80 hours of overtime a month.
Piala Inc., a marketing firm in Japan - known for exceptionally high smoking rates - is now giving nonsmoking employees an extra six days of time off each year to make up for the smoking breaks their colleagues regularly take. "The company is willing to take an even tougher anti-smoking measure in the future", said a public relations officer. Piala, a Tokyo-based online commerce consulting and marketing company, made a decision to kick-start the programme after an employee complained about the time lost work by smoking colleagues.
Piala employees told leadership their smoking coworkers generally spend about 15 minutes on each smoke break.
"I hope to encourage employees to quit smoking through incentives rather than penalties or coercion", Asuka said.
