4. New service for improving the well-being of families raising children
Participating companies/organizations: Lion Corporation, Tomoiku Co., Ltd., Sumitomo Life Insurance Company
overview: We focused on maternity leave and childcare leave as important times that lead to the well-being of families raising children. By providing the opportunity to envision how you and your family want to be, reliable information on family life, money, health, and childcare, and by having a reliable expert accompany you before and after childbirth, you can feel secure about starting a new life. We are envisioning a service that welcomes families with disabilities and builds a long-lasting foundation for family life after returning to work and afterward. After verifying how the provision of solutions during maternity and childcare leave as described above will affect the lifestyle habits, happiness, and job satisfaction of families after returning to work, we will conduct verification tests from the spring of 2023. We aim to start commercialization.
This program will continue to focus on the five themes of “personal care & wellness,” “nutrition & health management,” “aging & nursing care,” “insurance & health management,” and “mind and body.” With the addition of members, we will promote business co-creation to realize diverse well-being.
