Participating Ricoh companies in Europe will also host a range of employee engagement and fundraising activities. The sessions will educate staff on the symptoms, causes and impact of dementia, as well as the current progress of research.

We are now committing our people, technologies and expertise to contribute to achieving this mission. We are proud of our partnership with Alzheimer’s Research.
