|New employees practice reception in sign language prior to a group-joint ceremony. Their sign means "You are cordially welcome," or "May I help you?"|
March 14, 2013
Seven & I Holdings, a major retail company, held a ceremony for the newly hired employees a little earlier in the hotel in Tokyo on March 14.
The ceremony takes place every year at this time in order for new employees to get experienced in customer services as soon as possible.
*The sign shown in the picture looks like HELP-you in American Sign Language, but it is actually signed almost in the same way as HELP-me to mean "Welcome." Get confused?
