International University of Japan 40th Anniversary Commemorative Symposium “Leaders Needed in an Era of Instability – Global Human Resources Strategies for Japanese Companies”
Discussing human resource development that can contribute to corporate growth strategies by inviting leaders of companies developing global businesses
International University of Japan (Minamiuonuma City, Niigata Prefecture; President: Takayuki Itami) will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2022. To commemorate this, on November 9, 2022 (Wednesday), we will hold a symposium at Ochanomizu Sola City (Sola City Hall), “Leaders sought in the era of instability-Japanese companies’ global human resource strategies-“.
Mr. Jun Sawada, Chairman and CEO of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation and Mr. Toshihiro Sano, Chairman and Representative Director of JERA Co., Ltd. will be invited to talk about the development of global human resources who can demonstrate their abilities even in a multicultural environment, and what kind of leader is needed. I’ll enjoy having this.
The symposium will also be streamed online. Pre-registration is required to participate (participation fee is free).
Aim of this symposium
It has been a long time since the need for global human resource development has been called out, but how many companies have clearly positioned personnel strategies in their management strategies and succeeded in human resource development?
At this symposium, we will invite leaders from companies that are developing global businesses to discuss the development of global human resources who can demonstrate their abilities in a multicultural environment and contribute to corporate growth strategies. I would also like to discuss the kind of leadership required in the rapidly changing business environment, such as the post-coronavirus, depreciation of the yen, declining stock prices, and rising prices.
