Breakfast Seminar

Can you downsize your workforce in your Japan office? Is it legal? How do you manage Japan’s lifetime employment practices and avoid unfavorable press coverage and significant direct and indirect costs? This seminar brings together leaders from Japan’s consulting, legal and communications sectors to address this frequently misunderstood and often misapplied issue. Lead advisors from PricewaterhouseCoopers, Baker & McKenzie and Gavin Anderson panel a practical presentation and discussion based upon their real experience in managing this difficult issue. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of a jointly-released white paper, “Employee Downsizing in Japan.” This program should be of particular interest to those in human resources, management positions, law, consulting and public relations.

Includes continental breakfast.
