Many bosses probably think: Why the hell are my employees not working hard enough. But in Japan, a Company has a totally different problem. The Cosmetic-Giant “Shiseido” will from now on turn off the light at exactly 10 o´clock pm because otherwise nobody goes home.
The boss of Shiseido thinks, that his employees are working too hard and he wants them to enjoy the free time with their family.
Shiseido reacts on a governmental request and imposed a closing time.
As the new Workaholic-Mentality is a big part in the Japanese culture, the government asks the employees to spend more time with their family. As a result the rapidly sinking birthrate in Japan should be stopped and hopefully rise again.
What topsy-turvy world!
