All new college graduates recruited by the Group, including those with disabilities, are brought on as full and regular employees so that newly hired employees will be able to have a sense of trust and pride in the Group, and a sense of solidarity with their colleagues. We are making efforts to provide an environment where a diverse range of people can perform to their full potential.
