A company that allows me to work longer after marriage and childbirth
I was looking for a company in my hometown Fukui, where I could balance work and life and continue to work after marriage and childbirth. I learned that AXA Direct encouraged its employees to take paid leave and has a full-range of support programs in place for employees after childcare leave. In addition, many female workers played active roles after returning to work following the leave. I was attracted by these arrangements and applied to join the company. I also pursued a career, through which I could interact with people, because I enjoyed talking to people when I had a part-time customer service job as a student. I was worried that being a Contact Center advisor would be more difficult than face-to-face customer service because I couldn’t see the customer’s face, but I decided to take on the challenge because I thought that a challenging job would help improve my communication skills and be more rewarding.
Although I was worried before joining the company, my concerns became something worth challenging, thanks to the excellent training programs and kind support from my superiors and senior staff members.
