Employees at Sanoh’s Koga Factory (Ibaraki Prefecture) are planting and caring for flowers and plants.
The flower beds on the premises of the factory are divided into areas by department. Each department plants and cares for their favorite flowers and plants. Taking care of these flowers and plants on a daily basis (e.g., removing weeds, watering them and sprinkling fertilizer) is a refreshing change of pace for the employees. It also leads to an improvement in awareness of environmental beautification.
Many employees are soothed by looking at these flowers and plants while commuting to work or during their break times.
