Makeup of management by gender
The number of women in management is growing year by year. Today, nearly 30% of all managerial posts are held by female employees. Individual sections already have role models for women at the managerial level. OLM offers an environment ready to help both men and women build their careers.
Number of regular employees by location
We have approximately 500 employees serving customers across the country, with the majority working out of the Nagoya headquarters and the Tokyo office. They exhibit their unique characters within the tasks they are assigned, such as product planning, development, sales, quality management, call center operation, general affairs, and personnel affairs.
Number of items currently carried
We carry kitchenware, cleaning equipment, bedclothes, exercise machines, beauty items, leisure and recreational items, and other items that customers find useful for many different situations in life. Although the variety of items is limited, the items that we offer have all been carefully selected. We also work to improve the quality of individual items.
Average amount of overtime worked per month
OLM offers its own original flexible working hours program called SJ My Time. Under this program, employees who work at least 120 hours month are deemed to have satisfied the required number of work hours if they have completed all their assigned duties, or if their absence does not have a negative impact on business. In this case, they are free to decide their own work hours, including their respective start and finish times. We have also established other systems and an environment for ensuring a high level of productivity while allowing employees to maintain healthy balance between work and their personal life.
Number of inquiries received by the call center
Our call center operators, whom we call communicators, receive many different inquiries, ranging from pre-purchase inquiries on products to after-purchase product feedback. They assist callers with their purchases, answer questions about how to use products, and listen to requests and feedback that ultimately lead to product improvements.
Makeup of staff by gender
There are nearly an equal number of male and female employees. Emphasizing diversity and taking into account factors that allow for employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance, we endeavor to provide a workplace environment that enables every single staff member to work to their full potential.

WOW-kun has a father and mother and friends such as Mimi-chan, Tori-kun the Assistant, and Carrot-kun. They all work together to help convey the appeal of Shop Japan.
Percentage of employees who like someone in the company
The word like here refers to not only romantic relationships and friendships, but also respect and familiarity. The greater the number of likable people there are in the company, the better people feel about working there. There is no problem with approaching work with a businesslike attitude, clearly distinguishing between time on and off the job.
Percentage of employees who bring their own lunch on any given day
At lunchtime, some employees eat the lunch they brought, some purchase their meals at convenience stores or other stores and bring them back to the office, and eat out at restaurants. The Nagoya headquarters, Tokyo office, and Sapporo center are all conveniently located in urban areas where there are a large number of eating establishments nearby.
Number of employees by age group
People in their 30s make up the largest age group of employees at OLM, meaning that the majority of employees are relatively young. With a working environment that helps young staff members work to their full potential, the company offers a bright internal atmosphere full of vitality.
