Nippon Yusen Kaisha
Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd.
From October 19 to 23, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK; head office: Tokyo; president: Tadaaki Naito) and Yusen Logistics Co. Ltd. (YLK; head office: Tokyo; president: Hiromitsu Kuramoto) jointly conducted their 2015 Global NYK/YLK Week, a training program targeting NYK and YLK staff from offices around the world. Twenty-five overseas staff members — 12 from NYK and 13 from YLK — were nominated from the Group’s global business bases to attend the program along with two Japanese staff members from each company’s headquarters in Tokyo.
This training program has been jointly held by NYK and YLK since 2012 to deepen the interchange among the participants across national, division, and company boundaries and further strengthen links and networks within the Group.
This year’s program was held under the theme of “Bring Value into Action.” The participants discussed the enhancement of competitiveness through a heightened understanding of the NYK Group Values,* and presentations were given about each business segment’s strategy based on the NYK Group’s medium-term management plan. The participants actively exchanged opinions while engaging in group work designed to deepen their understanding of the NYK Group’s business and initiatives. The participants were divided into four groups, and each group made a presentation on the program theme to the presidents of NYK and YLK, in addition to board members. Comments afterward underscored the importance of active participation in the Group’s business management. It is expected that all participants will take their experiences in the five-day program back home to share with their colleagues.
As a global company, the NYK Group respects the diversity of its employees and the spirit of challenge, and remains dedicated to the development of its human resources so that the NYK Group can be a place where all employees can work with pride and realize their dreams.
*NYK Group Values
Integrity, innovation, and intensity — the 3 I’s — are considered to represent the essential character of NYK, formed over the course of the company’s 130 year history. Since 1997, the assimilation of these values has facilitated the achievement of the NYK Group mission statement. http://www.nyk.com/english/profile/mission/values/
