Promoting the Employment of People with Disabilities
In April 2002, NHK Spring Group established a special subsidiary, Nippatsu Harmony, which employs people with disabilities, and has been actively working to expand their employment while gradually increasing the number of operation sites in Japan.
Recent Major Initiatives at Our Special Subsidiary Nippatsu Harmony
