Goldman Sachs has introduced a childcare program in Japan that specializes in looking after employees’ sick children, stepping up efforts to retain more female workers and improve diversity.

Bloomberg News reports that under the program, when a child falls ill the bank will dispatch a babysitter or nurse from a local provider on request within two to three hours. It’s the first service to focus on sick children at Goldman Sachs worldwide, according to personnel manager Akiko Koda.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been trying to keep more women in the workforce, borrowing the “womenomics” concept coined by Goldman Sachs Chief Japan Strategist Kathy Matsui.
