Yokohama recognizes the importance and value of a diverse workforce. We demonstrate this through our minority recruitment and retention efforts. Moreover, we're committed to finding ways to create career opportunities for our employees who have both the personal attributes and the desire to grow in a supportive and collaborative business environment. Below we've highlighted our recruitment, development, training and mentoring efforts.
Yokohama's mandatory diversity education programs reinforce the company's commitment to diversity, while ensuring that employees have the skills and knowledge to carry out their individual responsibilities. The program communicates the importance of establishing a respectful work environment that maximizes the performance of every employee and enhances the company's ability to attract and retain the best talent. The emphasis on understanding, valuing and leveraging differences is also linked to our ability to compete effectively in an ever-changing marketplace.
