Aisin Seiki Co., a Toyota group auto parts maker based in Kariya, Aichi Prefecture, has set about conducting work-style reform, including abolishing dress codes and low-priority meetings to give its workers breathing room to come up with new ideas.

To get rid of meetings held just to share information, this year the firm started asking 300 of its employees to send an email to their colleagues at the beginning and end of the workday to report the day’s schedule.
