We promote hiring of foreigner nationals from any country for cultual diversity. Currently we have foreign nationals from US, India, China, and Korea. Thus, English is a second language within our organization.

Equal Employment:

We are also an equal opportunity employer and adhere to equality. We have the same proportion of male-female employees within the organization and within each officer level, which is extremely unique in Japan. Each employee is evaluated annually on their personal merit.

A Unique "No-Retirement" Program:

Another unique aspect is that we do not have a formal retirement program. Due to the aging population in Japan, our senior employees are not mandated to retire at the Age of 60, but rather encouraged to stay on if they desire. Thus, the age range of our employees range from 23 years to 67 years of age.
