Today we had a group from Kobe, Japan come and tour the Nozomi Project. One of the visitors asked the women, "What do you think about working at the Nozomi Project?"
Hiromi was first to answer: "I really love working here!"
Kazuko, the Nozomi staff giving the tour, was then asked what makes Nozomi different from other places of employment in Ishinomaki.
Kazuko explained, "We are so thankful to work here because we know if our children get sick or have problems we can take a day off or a leave of absence if necessary without being penalized. If we get a call from our child's school during the workday we don't have to be afraid of losing our job if we need to go to the school for some reason. It's a really safe place to work."
What questions do YOU want to ask the staff of the Nozomi Project?
We love every single visitor and customer who comes through our doors. But we know that visiting us in person in Ishinomaki is not a reality for many of you. So we've made a short, one minute video that gives you a unique glimpse into daily life at the Nozomi Project. We are quite sure it will make you smile.
If you are one of our Nozomi friends who has had a chance to visit the Nozomi Project in person, please share with us - what stood out to you the most? We all want to hear from you!
