When diverse people demonstrate their individuality and capabilities to the fullest and combine their wisdom, they can create innovation and deliver high-value-added products and services that meet diverse customer needs.
To realize this, we need to create an environment where diverse people can play active roles. Each employee needs to manage both their work and private life and work with high productivity.
Based on this policy, the Ricoh Group positions Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and Work-Life Management as one of its management strategies and is implementing initiatives to promote this strategy.
At Ricoh, we embrace and respect the collective and unique talents, experiences, and perspectives of all people. Together, we inspire remarkable innovation.
That’s how we live the Ricoh Way.
