Personnel Management System

I'd like to apply to
Hankook & Company,
and I have questions!

How does your job position system work?
At our company, we acknowledge the positions as different "roles" rather than "ranks."
Since 2017, our company has reduced the levels of positions to create an environment where the employees can be promoted to managers quicker according to their capabilities. It also provides a foundation to change our perception of vertical positions in a company as difference in roles rather than ranks. In addition, along with the reorganization of positions, the seniority-based title system was also discontinued, and all staff were required to address each other by their names with a suffix "-Nim." This allows us to respect one another as individuals, allowing an easier exchange of opinions and creation of good ideas through a flexible thinking.

Could tell me about your evaluation-compensation system?
Hankook & Company staff set their own challenging goals and self-evaluate the innovative and challenging aspects of the process, which determines the level of compensation.
Hankook & Company does not evaluate the staff's quantitative achievement of their goals or whether they have fulfilled instructions correctly. Instead, we assess if the process of achievement itself was as challenging and innovative as the goals set by the staff, and reflect it in their evaluation. What the performance management of Hankook Tire pursues is a system of guaranteed compensation for competent staff by evaluation their overall performance in ① the flexibility and agility of their goals, ② real-time progress management, and ③ the degree of achievement and their workstyle. By doing so, we are making innovative changes in their workstyle and strengthening their capabilities as a source of successful outcomes.

How do I get promoted to upper management?
We have a promotion system where staff can be put on the fast track of promotion based on their capabilities, not seniority.
Hankook Tire has a sophisticated promotion system designed to eliminate seniority-based elements while making bold early promotions and compensations based on the capabilities of the staff. We have a "pre-emptive promotion system" that selects competent staff based on their abilities and makes the most out of it. With the elimination of the standard training period for each position, any staff, even a newly joined staff, can open up opportunities for success and get promoted to, say, a team manager position as soon as his/her capabilities has been proved. By eliminating the seniority-based promotion practice and laying the foundation for bold selections of talented staff, they can focus more on self-directed development and fulfillment of their roles, and become the major players who continuously engage in challenging innovations regardless of their position and age.

What type of training systems does Hankook & Company offer for the staff's capability development?
We achieve individual growth through workplace learning, mutual learning, and full-time learning.
