Even though the Corona pandemic has various effects on individuals, it has affected us all at different levels, economically and in our working lives. Now that relaxation is gradually becoming possible − at least for our societies − it is worth taking a first look at companies in Germany and Japan: How has the Corona pandemic been dealt with? Can business continuity be guaranteed, and if so, which paths are being taken? Where can and where must management demonstrate liability?
With this Round Table we invite you to actively share your ideas and experiences. At the beginning, two impulses from Germany and Japan will be given introducing the topic and the status quo in both our countries, which will provide the basis for our subsequent discussion.
