Roadmap for Supporting the Development of Future Generations in the Communityaccelerate
Tohoku Ricoh Co., Ltd., manufacturing subsidiary, engages in local-community-focused activities using the company's uniqueness in the area of "Simplify life and work," one of the key pillars of Ricoh's three core values. The basic concept behind this is to bring happiness to people and society. In implementing activities, Tohoku Ricoh investigated its unique characteristics (regional features and management resources) and decided to concentrate on four themes-"using facilities/joining hands with the local community," "supporting the development of future generations in-house," "supporting the development of future generations in the community" and "handing down product-making know-how"-and then created a road map. The company and employees are now working together as one to deepen and expand each theme.
