I have been on a leave of absence from Honda due to my developmental disability, and I have now officially resigned.
The reason for this is that I was told that I absolutely had to try out for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week in order to return to work.
It was also said that remote work was not allowed.
I live outside of the prefecture and need to pass through Tokyo to commute.
Governor Koike and other governors around the country have repeatedly asked people to refrain from traveling.
In the case of the Corona disaster, I believe that the "must come to work" requirement is a messed up condition, but I suppose there is no room for consideration for the injured and sick on the frontlines. This is the situation even for a large company like Honda.
I know this is a difficult situation, but I hope that all companies will accelerate the application of remote work, and that it will become more widespread to work in a way that reduces the need to leave the office as much as possible.
Throughout the communication, I could sense that both the Health Management Center and Human Resources were in a state of panic. Returning to work under these circumstances is clearly not in the best interest of either the company or the employee.
We are now facing the CASE revolution and the Corona disaster, and I have decided to retire, hoping that I will still be able to drive a new Honda 10 years from now. Thank you very much for your support.
From now on, as an ardent Honda fan, I will do my best to support the company.
