During the first year, in-school lessons were conducted by employee instructors from PanaHome offices for 5,162 children at 70 elementary schools primarily in the Chubu region. Among the children who received a lesson, more than 97% of them made positive comments indicating a high level of satisfaction like "I enjoyed learning" and "I understood well." After the recent lesson conducted at the Yaizu Municipal Higashimashidu Elementary School, favorable feedback was received from teachers, such as "This lesson gave children a chance to evaluate houses from the perspective of the environment which is new for them."
Suzuki, the above-cited employee instructor, stated, "As a local, I do this lesson in gratitude for my community. I strive hard to figure out how I can effectively convey what needs to be conveyed." This project seems to have a positive influence on employees' growth as well. Further, there have been cases where it contributed to relationship building with customers in a way only possible through such a locally-oriented activity, for example, one day, some children who had received a lesson came to a housing exhibit with their family and everyone had a good time talking because of it.
"Utilizing the knowledge and skills acquired through our main business for school education will have a good influence back on our main business in return. We will continue expanding such a positive cycle to every region of the country."
