July 26, 2022

TOKYO, Japan, July 26, 2022 ― Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced new initiatives for improving workplace environment: “Renesas Day” and “Focus Fridays.” These measures will be offered to all global employees throughout August 2022.

Renesas is committed to providing a workplace environment where its talented employees can fully harness their potential while achieving work-life balance. Under this aspiration, Renesas spearheaded workstyle flexibility, such as implementing work-from-home policies and encouraging flexibility in working time.

The new initiatives being introduced are “Renesas Day” where a special day-off will be given on August 12, 2022 to all global employees, and “Focus Fridays” in which employees are encouraged not to book any meetings on Fridays during the month of August.

This is the first time that Renesas has implemented a unified day off or meeting-free days for all global employees. Being able to take a day off or avoid meetings on a single day across the Group will enable employees to not only relax and recharge, but also create time to further focus on their work with less interruption. Renesas aims to bolster employee productivity and engagement through these initiatives.
