Hiring people with disabilities

The ANA Group feels a natural responsibility to serve the public by offering jobs to people with disabilities—regardless of whether it has a legal obligation to do so. We also believe that including people with disabilities in our workforce is one of our group’s most valuable strengths.
For this reason, we make sure that all of our employees correctly understand “disability” as just one face of diversity. We want to make the most of each employee’s strengths as an individual with workplaces that foster confidence, pride, and self-actualization. Specifically, we are implementing the following initiatives in the hope of further energizing our corporate group.

    • (1) Every one of us shall make every effort to eliminate barriers that might hinder people with disabilities in carrying out their work.
    • (2) Every one of us shall respect each other’s individuality. Employees with disabilities shall communicate requests for support to their teams and help them to properly understand their needs.
    • (3) Every one of us shall focus on what can be done rather than what cannot be done, as we seek to maximize the unlimited potential in each person.
    • (4) The ANA Group shall provide opportunities for every employee—regardless of disability—to shine, understanding that this is an essential factor in our business development.

Eligible employees: Those who were once fully-contracted ANA AS employees and who left the job due to parenting responsibilities, spousal transfer, family caregiving, or similar reasons.

Overseas training programs

In an effort to develop human resources capable of coming out ahead in all-out global competition, we are implementing overseas training programs with a focus on our younger employees. Participation in these programs develops their identity as true citizens of the world while fostering independence, action-taking, and an understanding of the need to develop logical opinions that can be readily communicated to others.
