» Stop brain-drain from TEPCO by giving 100,000 yen to each manager

Tokyo Electric Power Co. President Naomi Hirose said on July 19th that he has decided to give 100,000 yen in lump-sum money to each management-level employee to refrain them from leaving TEPCO that is still not able to handl the crippled Fukushima No.1 nuclear plant. The money to be provided will total 500 million yen.

“This was quite a big decision, but I have strongly hoped to send a message from the management that I want to do such a thing (to the employees) when they tried hard and achieved something, even though the sum may be small,” Hirose said.
