Employee Happiness

Building on SK Happiness Management, we pursue a virtuous circle that encourages employees to create a happiness all their own. We foster a corporate culture of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Diversity and Inclusion

In employee recruitment and promotions, we do not discriminate based on gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, race, place of origin or education. To maintain equal treatment, we set and disclose management indicators, including gender wage ratio, gender ratio by position, turnover rate and percentage of employee contract types. We are improving problems identified by the indicators and promptly respond to any reports of discrimination or unethical acts.

Regular Evaluation and Feedback

We established a system of fair and reasonable employee evaluation and remuneration. Twice a year, we conduct performance evaluations through the process of self-evaluation and feedback from a supervisory evaluation. We match fair remuneration to the results of the evaluation.

We encourage employees to exercise their rights and participate in safety and health activities. We do not penalize employees for exercising those rights by passing on the costs of any relevant measures.
