Fujitsu to cut office space in half as pandemic transforms work

Tech company's 3-year plan comes as telework becomes new norm

People in face masks head to their offices in Tokyo. Fujitsu aims to reduce by half the number of its offices in Japan within three years.

TOKYO -- Japanese technology company Fujitsu will cut its office space in Japan by half over the next three years, Nikkei has learned, a move that may herald a new trend among large Japanese companies as the novel coronavirus encourages companies to reassess how they operate.

Fujitsu has already decided to make teleworking a standard practice and it has introduced a policy requiring the number of employees in its offices at any one time to be limited to just a quarter of the total.
