The purpose of this research is to study Work-Life Balance Policies in the childcare support companies in Tohoku District, and also to study the characteristics of WLB (Work-Life Balance) policies in companies acquiring both Platinum Kurumin (next generation support certification logo) Certification and Eruboshi (women’s active participation certification logo) Certification, and to clarify effective efforts leading to acceleration of women’s activity promotion. In conclusion, the factors which made it difficult to acquire both Platinum Kurumin Certification and Eruboshi Certification were revealed. There are two factors in WLB policies: the undeveloped of organizations promoting WLB, and insufficient measures for various methods of work. Similarly, there are two factors in promoting women’s activity policies: the undeveloped of the organization for promoting women's activities and insufficient reform of corporate culture. Therefore, establishing a special acceleration organization system is one of effective efforts to enhance effectiveness of WLB policies and accelerate the promotion of women’s activity.
