FUSO to Increase Employees Work Life Balance
through Automatic Mail Deletion

December 19, 2014
•  The new out-of-office wizard allows employees to automatically delete incoming internal e-mails during their long holidays
•  MFTBC is the second Daimler company to introduce “Mail on Holiday”
•  “Mail on Holiday” follows “Working-at-Home” scheme as an additional element for Work-Life-Balance at MFTBC
Kawasaki, Japan - Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC), one of Asia’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturers, today announced the introduction of the new out–of-office wizard "Mail on Holiday" which allows MFTBC employees automatically delete e-mails that are received during their long vacation, starting on December 12, 2014.
“Mail on Holiday” will help employees reduce stress during their long absence as well as increase efficiency after their return to work”, says Mr. Shigeki Egami, Head of Human Resources, MFTBC.
"Mail on Holiday" aims to prevent the flood of mails in your e-mail box while on vacation. Employees can therefore automatically delete incoming internal e-mails during their absence. At the same time a note is sent back and requests the sender to re-send his or her mail after their return.
“Mail on Holiday” had been already introduced to Daimler employees in Germany from August 2014. “Mail on Holiday” for MFTBC is the second step for Daimler AG.
“We have been and definitely keep committed to supporting our employees and their families also in the long run – giving more choice and possibilities in designing their career and personal lives. For example: We introduced “Working-at-Home” scheme from January 1st, 2014 and promote more flexible working hours (without core time). These activities help MFTBC become the number one choice as the employer in our industry”, Mr. Egami added.
