The study session by Prof. Yoko Tanaka

Nov. 8, 2019

We held the study session by Prof. Yoko Tanaka, Tsukuba University. She delivered that the work style (especially working hours) in Germany had been made more flexible through the measures after the Lehman shock and that as a result Germany checked the increase of non-regular employment. She also mentioned the treatment of part time job in Germany was different from that of Japan, and gave us the examples from interview survey that in Germany the managers tended to be part time job.
