TOKYO, Japan - April 21, 2022 - ORIX Life Insurance Corporation (“ORIX Life”) announced today that it has received "Kurumin Certification" from the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare as a company supporting childcare.

Kurumin Certification

"Kurumin Certification" is a system under which the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare certifies companies that are making efforts to balance work and child-rearing as companies supporting childcare, based on the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next-Generation Children. Companies that meet all 10 criteria including the establishment of an action plan to support employees' child-rearing, as well as the establishment of a system to allow employees to take at least a certain level of parental leave or reduced working hours system for childcare are eligible to receive this certification.

To enable every employee to continue to apply themselves while balancing work and child-rearing, ORIX Life has made efforts to expand various systems, including childcare leave system that exceeds legal standards, reduced working hours during childcare system, and child nursing care leave system. ORIX Life’s childcare leave system can be used until the child reaches 3 years of age. This system can also be divided up to two times, allowing employees to choose to take leave again during the period. In addition, the reduced working hours during childcare system is available until the child graduates from elementary school, allowing employees to adopt work styles with flexibility that enable them to balance work with child-rearing. In fiscal 2021, the rate of employees returning to work from childcare leave was 97%, and they achieve a balance between work and child-rearing by using the various system in place.

ORIX Life will continue to improve the internal systems and work environment to create conducive workplaces where every employee can fully demonstrate their capabilities.
