Whether I fun or difficult, “let’s do it together.”
You cannot devan in a suit because it would be too hot. For a few decades, all employees wore sportswear and T-shirts to the office, unloaded the shipments for about an hour, then showered at the office and changed into suits to start their usual tasks. Whether fun or difficult, “let’s do it together”—that is what Hirotake Yano, the founder desired. Many employees sympathized with his idea, and they say that they liked devanning because it allowed them to communicate with people from other departments. Devanning can be called a traditional event at Daiso. Although we no longer do it, the mindset of doing it together is still present, and we can help each other by being united and forceful when something happens.
