TOKYO, Japan (August 30, 2012) -  Tokyo-based recruitment firm Wahl & Case hosted their second annual Global HR Seminar on August 30, with a keynote presentation on employee engagement led by Taro Muramatsu of leading HR consultancy IWNC. The audience of top HR leaders of global Fortune 500 firms, both domestic and foreign, enjoyed the midday session at the ANA Intercontinental Hotel, which was preceded by a networking lunch.

Muramatsu is managing director of IWNC Japan, where he consults companies across Asia on the implementation and execution of corporate strategy, utilizing a process designed to draw on a company's existing strengths. He has also developed programs targeted to boost motivation and competition among employees, specializing in risk-taking, long-term goal setting, and entrepreneurship.

Leading an interactive session, Muramatsu asked attendees to examine the role that HR plays in driving measures to improve employee engagement. The very interactive and lively discussion focused on the realities of meeting the expectations of senior management, while at the same time overcoming potential resistance by creating a culture of change readiness. “Employees who have a strong feeling of engagement with their organization think of the company as they would their own business,” Muramatsu said. With this mindset, they are more likely to work proactively towards business goals and align with management.

Beginning with the questions, "Why is engagement important now?" and "What does it really mean to be connected to the organization?" he led participants in a robust exchange of ideas and best practices. Pooling their experiences, the group discussed how to approach the topic of engagement across various organizational relationships and took notes on how to take action at their own companies. Surveys after the seminar revealed that participants took away practical and actionable ideas, but also really valued the chance to interact with other senior HR professionals in a setting dedicated to excellence in human capital.

“Having served in senior HR roles at Fortune 50 companies like Apple and Morgan Stanley, I know how hard it is for HR professionals to find a chance to interact with counterparts outside their own organization,” said Wahl & Case president Michael J. Case. “I hope that our participants can implement some of Taro’s concepts and create real change.” Case also confirmed that the HR practice group at Wahl & Case will continue this series to encourage debate and mutual support in the HR community.
