A working woman with children appeared impressive
“How vibrant and attractive they are.” When I was a temporary worker, there were many female workers playing active roles at AXA General Insurance. Senior employees who had children worked energetically every day and, to me, they seemed impressive and very attractive. Because I hoped to continue working even after I had children, AXA seemed an ideal place to work. As my desire to play a larger role in this company grew, I gladly accepted an offer for a full-time position. As a regular worker, I have been reminded that a full range of support programs are in place to help female employees who give birth or are raising children to continue working. I took a total of two years and eight months of maternity and childcare leave when I gave birth to my two children. Having returned to work, I am utilizing other support systems, including shortened working hours and staggered work hours, with the kind understanding of my colleagues.
