ACI Asia Pacific HR Best Practice Seminar Opens in Tokyo, Japan

Aviation human resources professionals are in Tokyo this week for the ACI Asia Pacific HR Best Practice Seminar, the first ACI human resources seminar in Japan.

The three-day seminar, hosted by Narita International Airport Corporation, kicked off today in Tokyo, Japan.

Distinguish speakers are invited to attend the seminar and will discuss along the theme "Delivering Sustainable Airports through Creative HR", employee productivity & capability building, corporate social responsibility and HR policy to address the challenge of managing new generation.

Mrs. Patti Chau, Regional Director of ACI Asia Pacific, said, According to the Air Transport Action Group, 58.1 million jobs worldwide are supported by aviation and 8.7 million people work directly in the industry. Globally some 5 million people work at airports. With passenger traffic set to nearly double over the next 15 years, people - both our employees and the passengers - need to be at the heart of any initiative we undertake. ACI is taking a leading role in developing a new generation of airport leaders in all functional areas of airport business through its Global Training and Airport Management Professional Accreditation Program (AMPAP) initiatives.

The first ACI Asia-Pacific Human Resources Best Practice Seminar was held in Seoul, Korea, in 2007 and since then this has become an annual event held at various locations with enormous support from the host airports, airport members and other business partners.

In the next two days, we will dive into the theme Delivering Sustainable Airports through Creative HR. Sustainability calls for contributions from people across all functions of an organization. I strongly believe that the HR management plays an important role in leading the organization to develop and implement sustainable strategies, Ms. Chau added.
