With the spread of the new coronavirus in Japan, companies are taking steps to prevent infection. Recruiting activities and student internships have also been affected.
Mercari, a major company in Flea Market, has decided to conduct telework at home, etc., in principle, for those who work at the headquarters in Roppongi, Tokyo, among the approximately 1,800 employees of the group.
This means that business travel is prohibited, both in Japan and overseas.
In addition, internal meetings and external meetings, as well as recruiting interviews, will be conducted online in principle.
The response will be from the 19th to the 28th of this month, after which the situation will be judged.
Many companies have taken action to prevent the spread of infections, and Sony and Fujitsu are encouraging employees to take a staggered commute to avoid rush hours and to encourage active use of telework.
Numerous events such as the cancellation and postponement of large-scale events have been determined, and Nippon Life has decided to cancel the internship for students scheduled to be held in Marunouchi, Tokyo on this month.
About 1,000 students were planning to participate.
