Mizuho Financial Group Inc has opened an in-house day-care facility at its head office in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward. Through the facility, the company aims to establish a working environment where female workers can balance work and child rearing.
Children of employees of six group companies, including Mizuho Bank, Mizuho Corporate Bank and Mizuho Securities Co, will be eligible to use it.
An outside company will operate the center on behalf of Mizuho Financial. The facility, which can be used just for one day with advance reservations, will care for up to 25 preschool children aged six years old or younger between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. The new day-care facility is Mizuho Financial Group's second, following one that opened in June last year at its training center in Shibuya Ward, Tokyo.© JCN
