Employment of refugees
「RISE program」(Refugee Inclusion Supporting Empowerment)

UNIQLO implemented its RISE (Refugee Inclusion Supporting Empowerment) program that employs refugees as store staff. The RISE program aims to create a comfortable working environment, providing language and store training. It also includes training for managers and trainers to help them welcome refugees as staff. The RISE program has helped Fast Retailing to formulate and communicate a clear philosophy of diversity throughout the company and to make diversity a cornerstone of our culture. Currently, we employ refugees globally, including Japan, the United States and Germany.
