Staffing agency Pasona Group Inc. has recruited two new “employees” this week — two female goats. They’re the latest addition to what Pasona calls its “urban farm,” in which over 200 types of fruits and vegetables grow in and around its central Tokyo headquarters building.
The goats were given a formal welcome by Pasona’s founder and group chief executive, Yasuyuki Nambu, and wear their employee ID cards on their collars. A company contest is under way to name them. The company said the goats will “provide comfort” to their fellow employees — as well as manure, to be used as fertilizer for some of the crops.
