Shortened Working Hours for Improving Work/Life Balance
80% of Sinyi Realty’s are sales, and due to the nature of the work, peak service periods tend to be when most people have finished work or during weekends. Long weekends and multiday holidays are also prime service periods. Given these facts, there is a high risk of working in excess of usual hours. Through overtime management mechanism, adjusting attendance time, and optimizing the leave system, helping our employees accomplish a balance between work and home lives.
