Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd.
Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK; head office: Tokyo; president: Tadaaki Naito) and Yusen Logistics Co. Ltd. (YLK; head office: Tokyo; president: Kenji Mizushima) jointly conducted their 2018 Global NYK/YLK Week from October 29 to November 2 in Japan. Twenty-eight staff members from around the world were nominated from the Group’s global business bases to attend the program, along with a handful of employees based in Japan.
This training program has been jointly held by NYK and YLK since 2012 to deepen interaction among the participants across national, division, and company boundaries and further strengthen links and networks.
This year's theme was “to drive ‘Staying Ahead 2022 with Digitalization and Green.’” The participants engaged in workshops that examined how to proceed and achieve the NYK Group’s medium-term management plan, how to improve the NYK Group’s competitiveness, and how to be the ideal leader during a time of rapid change. Afterwards, participants made presentations on the theme to board members, including the presidents of NYK and YLK, thus allowing the groups to have an impact on the Group’s business management.
At the end of the week, the participants traveled to Kyoto for a day of Japanese culture and learned about traditional methods to relax mind and body through Zen meditation.
It is expected that all participants will take their experiences from the five-day program back to their offices to share with their colleagues, and that they will use what they learned in this program in their everyday work.
The NYK Group respects the diversity of its employees and the spirit of challenge, and is dedicated to the development of its human resources so that the Group can be a place where all employees can work with pride and realize their dreams.
