We commended our long time employees at today’s morning assembly.
First of all, Mr. F and Mr. I in the above picture, Mr. K who’s away on business and Mrs. U of Tokyo office.They’ve been working for us for 40 years.
They are all the same age as me.
Until the last year, 40 year-employees had been older thanI was.
But finally we’re all of an age.
20 year- employees make me look like someone who just got drafted.
Mrs. K who’s in her 10th year here.
Mr. H and Mr. O who just turned 20.
We gave them time to say a few words.
“Without my family and colleagues, I wouldn’t be here.”
“For talent training, I’ll give my knowledge to only two people in order of arrival.”
“I’m so glad to be a part of this warm company.”
“There is much more I want to do.”
“Tomorrow I’ll be bigger than who I am today.”
Everyone was amazing. I hope more staffs tell their storyto us like this.
I thought “just for today...” and decided to make them do it, which eventually left no time for my speech.
But I believe those stories were worthier listening to than my speech.
I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has been a part of ISOWA.
And I hope ISOWA will have more long time employees in the future.
