Sysmex Corporation (HQ: Kobe, Japan; Chairman and CEO: Hisashi Ietsugu) announces the establishment of a new company, Sysmex Harmony Co., Ltd., to promote the employment of people with disabilities.
Sysmex promotes diversity, creating an environment in which a wide range of human resources can exercise their talents without regard to nationality, race, gender, or disability. We have also installed barrier-free facilities to create an environment that is easy for people with disabilities to work in.
In addition to these initiatives, we have established a new company, Sysmex Harmony Co., Ltd., to further promote the employment of people with disabilities and realizing an inclusive society.
We expect Sysmex Harmony to handle production-related support functions, mainly for Sysmex Group instrument and reagent factories.
In fiscal 2017, Sysmex aims to apply for certification of the new company as a special subsidiary under the Act on Employment Promotion, etc. of Persons with Disabilities.
Sysmex was established and nurtured in Kobe and Hyogo, and has grown thanks to support from the local community. Through the establishment of Sysmex Harmony, we aim to create an environment in which everyone, regardless of disability, can work and grow together enthusiastically and with peace of mind, alongside their colleagues and families in the local community.
Going forward, Sysmex will continue working to coexist harmoniously with local communities by putting into practice the Sysmex Way, the corporate philosophy of the Sysmex Group.
