TPO Report – The ideal situation and reality of how workers in their 30s spend their day off in the Greater Tokyo area

    At TPO, we aim to improve the quality of working life and to create a happy workplace for all employees. In a time where companies are introducing new work style reform initiatives, we conducted a survey on how workers in their thirties would like to spend their day off and how they are actually spending it. (Report in Japanese only)

    We found that this age group believe that well-being has a good influence on work, and 63.5% of the respondents said that they would like to use the most of the five compulsory paid holidays that has been enforced as of April 2019.

    Other major findings are as below:

    – 63.5% of people answered that they would make the most of the  five compulsory paid holidays and welcomed the initiative.

    -There is a gap in how people would like to spend their vacation depending on the gender and marital status.

    -47.7% of single men in their thirties answered “It will be difficult for me to take advantage of the holidays” and have a  pessimistic perception on how to spend their holiday. Of this group, 26.1% of people answered “I do not know what to do with my vacation”

    -75.5% of married women in their thirties positively welcomed the 5-day holiday and said that they will use it meaningfully. However, the reality shows that they are occupied by housework.

    -Workers in their thirties believe that well-being has a good influence on their work. They believe that it will increase their motivation, improve relationships and enhance positive thinking at work.
