Not only employees can arrange childcare, but also they can be more focused on work, and find a balance between work and family.
All the female employees are thankful for this considerate act; it provides them a secure and convenient space to breastfeed during work hours. Others also expressed the support about the discounted fees for kindergarten, not only is the location convenient from the office, it also enables them to concentrate on work without having to worry about their children as much.
