Friday’s Yomiuri led with a report on the results of its recent survey showing that about 80% of major companies in Japan have increased their proportions of female employees in managerial posts at the level of section chief or higher since the Law on Promotion of Women’s Participation and Advancement in the Workplace went into force in April 2016. The results reflect the positive effects of companies’ programs for female workers, such as measures for work-life balance and training seminars. However, women accounted for only 8.3% of workers in managerial positions in April 2017, far below the government’s goal of 30% by 2020.
