Today we visited Yokogawa Electric Corporation and its exceptional subsidiary Yokogawa Foundry Corporation to learn about the employement of persons with disabilities in both open labour market and the special affiliated company.
Ms. Y. Hirata, one of the planning comittee members, works in the human resource department and showed us around the company. We had opportunities to talk with some employees with disabilities. Also all participants tried some of Yokogawa’s original vocational aptitude tests which are actually conducted to persons with intellectual disabilities.
Today’s visit was concluded with reflection by Prof. Terashima.
We’d like to express our gratitude to Yokogawa Corporation for today’s insightful visit.
