NYK and YLK Jointly Hold Seminar for National Staff from Offices around the World

NYK and YLK Jointly Hold Seminar for National Staff from Offices around the World

Oct 17, 2013

From  October  7  to 11, Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK; head office: Chiyoda-ku,
Tokyo;  president:  Yusumi  Kudo)  and Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd. (YLK; head
office:  Minato-ku, Tokyo; president: Hiromitsu Kuramoto) jointly conducted
their  2013  Global  NYK/YLK Week, a training seminar targeting NYK and YLK
national  staff from around the world. Twenty-eight staff members ? 14 from
NYK  and 14 from YLK ? were selected from the Group’s global business bases
to attend the seminar.

The  seminar  was  held  in  Tokyo and Kyoto and aimed to foster a sense of
solidarity among the Group members by promoting mutual understanding across
national,  company, and divisional boundaries. Since last year, the seminar
has  been  jointly  organized  by NYK and YLK, aiming to further strengthen
linkages and networks within the Group.

This  year’s  seminar  was  held under the theme, 塗ichWhat will be the key
challenges  for  the  NYK Group over the next five years?罵och Participants
actively  exchanged  opinions  during  various  programs designed to deepen
understanding  of  the  business  and  initiatives  of  the  NYK Group. The
programs  included  discussions  on  the  NYK  Group  values  of integrity,
innovation,  and  intensity;  lectures on each divisional strategy based on
the  medium-term  management  plan;  and  workshops focusing on quality and
workplace  skills  that  are  the basis of the Group’s competitiveness. The
participants  were  divided  into  five  groups,  and  each  group  made  a
presentation  about the seminar’s theme. This raised members’ consciousness
of   the  importance  of  active  participation  in  the  Group’s  business
management.

Moreover,  to promote better understanding of Japanese culture, the members
visited various cultural sites and took part in Zen meditation in Kyoto.

It  is  expected that all participants will take their experiences from the
five-day  seminar  back  home to share with their colleagues. The NYK Group
will  continue  to  foster  national  staff  members working at the Group’s
global  business  bases  to  promote  NYK’s  continuing  growth as a global
company.
