NYK, YLK Hold Joint Training Program
From October 19 to 23, Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha and Yusen Logistics Co. Ltd. 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.
