Toward the Advancement of People with Disabilities

The Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Group aims to enable people with disabilities to work with motivation and fulfillment as members of the workplace. Nikko Asset Management has been developing its Athlete Employee program since 2013, and is focusing on recruiting wheelchair athletes. Some of the employees who joined the company through this program have established a working group for those with disabilities and are involved in the task of creating a comfortable working environment for all employees.

Employment of Disabled Persons at SuMi TRUST Bank

From communicating with customers at branches to handling clerical duties at our headquarters, the number of places where people with disabilities work as a part of the team is increasing at Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank. We also focus on ensuring that any concerns and special requests these employees may have are addressed by holding interviews after joining the company. The results of these interviews are used to create a more comfortable working environment for all employees, both physically and psychologically. Since the 2022 fiscal year, we have also been promoting a project to expand employment of individuals with intellectual, mental, or other developmental disabilities, in addition to those with physical disabilities. (Promoted through the open recruitment system by employees who choose to participate in this project.)
