Flexible Working Hours Introduced as Part of Work System Reform

〜For all full-time employees from December 2022〜

Genial Technology, a developer and distributor of AI audit tools, will introduce flexible working hours on December 1, 2022, to provide a more comfortable work environment by enabling flexible work styles that meet the needs of each individual employee.

Although we have introduced remote work since April 2020, we believe that providing a more comfortable work environment for our employees will enable them to exercise their abilities more effectively and efficiently.

The flexible working hour system allows each employee to voluntarily decide the start and end times and working hours of the day within the scope of the monthly scheduled working hours.

As remote work is becoming more prevalent globally due to the pandemic, the way we think about time as well as where we work has changed. The new system allows employees to decide how to increase productivity and achieve results in the time they have set aside for themselves, while also valuing their private time for interaction with family, housework, childcare, hobby, study, and other activities. As a result of repeated discussions on how to improve working styles, we have decided to introduce flexible working hours in order to realize a new normal way of working. The details of the system are as follows.

■ Details of the System

  • Start date: December 1, 2022
  • Target employees: All regular employees
  • Core hours: No core hours
  • Flexible hours: 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
  • Standard daily working hours: 7 hours

The introduction of the flexisble working hours is not our goal. Genial Technology will continue to provide an environment where employees can choose a variety of work styles and achieve a work-life balance.

■ Genial Technology

Genial Technology offers Genial AI, a self-learning audit tool that automates vouching, with the mission of "AI for the more effective auditing" to reduce the burden on the auditors and allow them to focus on tasks that require human ingenuity and judgement.

While there has been some progress in the development of tools to improve operational efficiency in the audit through the use of technology, the majority of these tools currently rely only on visual checks. Using AI-OCR, GenialAI can read purchase orders, shipping documents, invoices, and other documents that are the basis of accounting records, and automatically match them with sales and other data, thereby automating vouching procedures.

Genial Technology is developing a product that will greatly automate audit operations.
