KADOKAWA announced on July 13 that it has introduced a “subscription allowance” that pays 2000 yen monthly to employees who subscribe to subscription services such as video and music from the 1st. As part of the welfare program, the purpose is to enrich leisure time and create creative ideas. In addition to video and music, more than 140 services in the entertainment field such as comics and games are targeted. If any one of them is contracted, the allowance will be paid regardless of the fee, and the service requested by the employee will be added at any time. However, it is not disclosed what kind of service is specifically targeted. Introduced with reference to employee requests against the background of increased time spent at home due to increased telework and refraining from going out. Approximately 2,000 full-time employees and contract employees are eligible for payment, of which approximately 1,000 have already applied. The company says it will continue to expand its welfare programs based on the voices of its employees.
