FINDING and training the right employees have become pressing issues for Japanese businesses across Central Europe.

The Slovak Labour Market and Employee Motivation Seminar and Workshop will allow Japanese businesses operating in this region, local human resources agencies, law firms, experts and institutions to discuss questions relating to the current labour market in Slovakia.

The event, organised by the Slovak-Japanese Chamber of Commerce, will be an ideal opportunity for all participants to discuss a range of different issues with experts from human resources groups as well as government agencies that are involved in the Slovak labour market.

The seminar is intended to help attendees establish personal contacts and foster mutual cooperation among participants.

It will take place at the Holiday Inn hotel on Bajkalská street in Bratislava on March 18, starting at 9:00. The seminar will last until 14:00, and will be followed by a two-hour workshop.
