Health, Medical and Welfare Fields
With the aim of being a company having employees trusted by society, we hold a variety of events for our employees to give back to the community in an enjoyable setting, while fostering a greater awareness of the importance of contributing to society among our employees.
Sales Events for Products Made by Persons with Disabilities at Sheltered Workshops
Within the NTT Communications Group, we periodically hold events for selling confectionaries made by persons with disabilities at sheltered workshops, and these are timed to Christmas and Valentine’s Day as well as Japan’s White Day. Purchasing delicious confectionaries is an easy action to take for our employees and results in promoting the self-reliance of persons with disabilities. We also foster a greater awareness of social welfare among our employees through these events.
We have implemented this initiative since fiscal 2003. Since fiscal 2015, we have also held events for selling breads made at a sheltered workshop in Chiyoda Ward. These tasty breads are so popular that they are consistently sold out. The events are frequently held at Group companies as well.
Donation of Calendars
In January 2020, the NTT Communications Group donated 1,308 unused calendars and notebooks from our business offices to Community Support Center Kobe, a certified NPO. The calendars are distributed by the organization mainly to senior citizens and persons with disabilities through disaster relocation housing, local governments, regional organizations, and other NPOs.
Ongoing Training for CPR in Emergencies
The NTT Communications Group conducts CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) courses, mainly for its employees.
In Japan, approximately 70,000 people die every year from sudden cardiac arrest while not under hospital care for heart disease. There have been many cases in which bystanders were unable to perform emergency aid procedures, and 90% of those victims have died as a result of not receiving immediate help.
Fast, appropriate basic life support can save lives in many different situations, and we must protect employees, their families, and as many other people as we can. To that end, in addition to regular training, we periodically conduct remote programs through a video conferencing system that we developed, enabling us to promote the importance of life-saving as a value we share with all of society.
