Global Reach: Report on Cocone’s 13th Anniversary Gathering!
Hello, this is Haru, a recruiting and public relations intern!
September is here again this year. What comes to mind when you think of September?
It’s the month of slightly more pleasant days and lots of seasonal foods!
I recently fulfilled a childhood dream of buying a box of peaches. Hmmm, what a great season.
In fact, “September” is a very important month for Cocone.
Yes, September 4 is the anniversary of Cocone’s founding, whatever that means!
Very happy ！！！！！
To celebrate the occasion, desserts prepared by the deli’s pastry chef were served.
This gorgeous jelly is topped with macaroons and fruits, with apples submerged at the bottom!
It was sweet, refreshing and surprisingly delicious. ……
A special menu was also offered at the juice bar we visited for a previous interview.
Lots of strawberries and fresh cream. The promised deliciousness.
Both sweets were based on the color red, the image color of Cocone!
Every year, Cocone holds a company-wide assembly around the anniversary of the company’s founding, and this time I had the opportunity to observe this assembly from the preparation stage!
The gathering, which lasted less than two hours, was an experience that made us realize the thought and planning that went into everything from the theme to the content, and we hope this article will give you a small glimpse of that!
The theme of this year’s meeting was “Global”!
You may hear the word a lot, especially if you are a student of my age. I’ve heard it so much & seen it so much that I’m already on the verge of starting a gestalt collapse in me. ……
However, the intent of the word “global” here is quite clear.
Cocone now has numerous group companies and extends from Tokyo to Fukuoka, Shanghai, and Seoul.
Some employees may understand the concept of …… in their heads, but may not be able to grasp it in their hearts and minds. The reason for this is that some employees may not be able to accept it as a reality, even though they know it in their heads,
Let’s make this gathering a more colorful experience of the presence of group members from all over the world and their expansion into the world of Cocone!”
He said that the goal of the project was to
And in order to realize this theme, “video” was central to the content of this year’s meeting!
Last year, the meeting itself was held online, but since many people were not used to the online broadcast format at the time, the main content was mini-games and quizzes related to Cocone, based on the idea that it would be easier to view the meeting if both parties were interacting with each other and felt a sense of ownership.
However, after a year, everyone has become accustomed to the online structure, and we are confident that it is safe to try new ways of doing things! This year, however, we decided to focus less on communication and more on video content!
The content of the video is, of course, something that gives a sense of the “global” expansion of Cocone!
After watching a video introducing each of the Cocone offices in Japan and Korea (the image above is an introduction of the Fukuoka office!) After watching a video introducing one of the Cocone offices in Japan and Korea (the image above shows the Fukuoka office!), a video was shown of people from each of the group companies giving a toast in their respective languages.
I heard it for the first time at this gathering, and the Korean toast call is very cute. ……
I have never been outside of Japan in my entire life, but it was a time when I was able to think a little bit about the Cocone employees working on the other side of the ocean.
As was the case with the online activities at the summer festival, which I introduced in a previous article, I felt that the gathering was very much about “keeping the hearts close even when they are far apart”.
The reason is that it has become physically more difficult to get together, but when you consider that this has made the distance between countries less of a concern, I wonder if the Corona disaster did not leave only negative things behind.
Above all, I felt that Cocone’s new enthusiasm, flexibility, and strength to overcome difficult situations by using them as a force to overcome them were evident in the various innovations used at the gathering! I felt that the various innovations at this year’s gathering reflected the renewed enthusiasm, flexibility, and strength of Cocone, which celebrated its 13th anniversary.
I will renew my enthusiasm and continue to introduce Cocone’s efforts in the next issue, which I would like to share with you~!
