Symposium: Total Optimization of Organizations through Health and Productivity Management in Japan and France


Health and productivity management (HPM) aims to achieve the overall optimum for the whole organization by integrating cost management.

We will hold a symposium and invite 2 recognized researchers from Lille 1 University. We will introduce the results of our joint research in Japan and France and present advanced cases of HPM.
