Nippon Life Benefits is proud of our Asian heritage. We remain deeply rooted in the values that define the Japanese business landscape-Harmony, Honor, and Humanity. We put these values at the core of all that we do and our Asian heritage is reflected in our DNA.
Many of our internal employees and the clients they serve hold Asian heritage. Recently, there has been an increase in acts of discrimination, hate, and violence targeting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Nippon Life Benefits remains committed to diversity, respect, and inclusion of all people regardless of their race. Racism is never tolerated. We acknowledge, respect, and celebrate differences and commonalities.
We believe that we have a responsibility to condemn hate and stand to support our friends, families, colleagues, and neighbors who are mourning, angry, and in pain.
As we struggle to navigate through these uncertain times, we pledge to uphold these values and the dignity of every employee, client, member, and partner we have the pleasure of working with.
Our communities are faced with the inevitable truth that now is the time for change.
