Employment of People with Disabilities
Employing and developing people with disabilities
Yokogawa has hired persons with disabilities since the establishment of its Normalization Project in 1992. We continue to meet the legal employment rate for such individuals, and our skilled employees with disabilities are engaged in all areas of our business, from engineering and manufacturing to administration.
The Yokogawa Group promotes the employment of disabled persons, with each company hiring and utilizing people facing different physical and mental challenges who can better contribute to the specific business of the company. Over the past several years, the ratio of employees with disabilities within the Group has, to a significant degree, exceeded the legal requirement.
Yokogawa will continue to provide employment and career opportunities for people with disabilities.
