Technology firm Fujitsu has said it will halve its office space in Japan as it adapts to the "new normal" of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a statement sent to the BBC, Fujitsu said it "will introduce a new way of working that promises a more empowering, productive, and creative experience for employees that will boost innovation and deliver new value to its customers and society".
Under the plan employees will "begin to primarily work on a remote-basis to achieve a working style that allows them to flexibly use their time according to the contents of their work, business roles, and lifestyle".
The company also said that the programme will allow staff to choose where they work, whether that is from home, a major corporate hub or a satellite office.
Fujitsu believes that that the increased autonomy offered to its workers will help to improve the performance of teams and increase productivity.
