I don't know about the whole Honda company, but my former workplace has not made much progress in teleworking either.
I was told a while ago that we still have about 60% of the workforce.
The total number of people infected in all the offices is about 1.6 times the rate of new infections in Japan as a whole (Note 1).
Now is not the time to go to work, after all.
As a company that contributes to society, I feel that we could do more to comply with the government's request.
Of course, there are jobs in the testing field that require the use of tools and equipment.
However, in my workplace, I rarely set foot in the work area.
Isn't it difficult to telework? ｜NHK NEWS WEB
This is an article that says that even in Kasumigaseki, a government agency, telework is just a front, and 70% of the employees go to work.
The same is true at my workplace, where even employees who work completely at their desks have to come to work for the reason that it is not allowed under the employment regulations.
(Note 1) The rate of new infections was independently calculated from the data on the following website (weekly average as of January 19, 2021).
