At Elektrobit, the well-being of people always comes first. That’s why we have been implementing extensive measures to protect our employees, applicants, and customers since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis. Since then, our employees in Japan have been working mainly in mobile work and with flexible working hours. The reduction in commuting times minimizes their risk of infection and the flexibility in scheduling increases their work-life balance.
To maintain a safe distance in the office, only a few employees are there at the same time, and in meeting rooms the number of persons is limited. Extensive hygiene and health measures in the office also contribute to a safe stay. In times of physical distance, we strengthen collaboration and team spirit through regular virtual meetings and coffee breaks.
