[ONLINE EVENT] How Technology Companies in the U.S. and Japan are Responding to the COVID-19 Crisis

Thursday, June 4, 2020 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm









The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically altered lives around the globe. It has forced travel restrictions, many daily work to take place online, and communication to occur remotely through video platforms. This has created new opportunities to instantly interact with people thousands of miles away, however cultural and physical distinctions can also create new challenges. Access to a reliable internet connection, a society’s acceptance of remote work, and even the size of a home can all play a role in how employees and their families adjust to life during COVID-19.

Companies in the information technology and telecommunications industries are at the heart of this dilemma – how to provide important services around the world, while also responding to rapidly-changing requirements, customers’ concerns, and unique country environments. In this webinar, we will discuss how Japanese and American firms are using their expertise to address current societal needs, how working from home and returning to work are different in Japan and the U.S., and how COVID-19 is impacting our immediate future.
