Daikin Applied hosted the special event to emphasize its commitment to people-centered management. The approach is rooted in the belief that a company’s people have unlimited potential to help the business grow, alongside the growth of its employees.
Product managers explained their roles in developing Daikin technology and equipment, and demonstrated the company’s recent technical advancements on the show floor for the students.
