Employment of the Handicapped
1. In our effort of supporting the employment of the handicapped
Miyagen began supporting the employment of the handicapped in 1991. In the harsh conditions after the collapse of the bubble era, we started employing people with disabilities as part of our social contribution project.
In 1993, the company was certified as an exceptional employer which hires many employees with severe disabilities. Since then the company continues its effort on promoting a practicable working environment for the people with disabilities. In 2005, Japan’s Minister of Health, Labor, and Welfare awarded the company for its contribution to the society.
We have employed more than 10 people with disabilities, including elderly people who have worked for more than 20 years. (Currently employing five mentally handicapped people)
We aim to make handicapped people be independent and to be able to be a part as a member of the local society.
We devised and improved working methods so that employees with disabilities are able to work according to their respective ability and to further develop their skills as an individual.
In addition, people with disabilities or not can work together in harmony and be compassionate with each other which after all, is the foundation of being a human.
