[Sponsored Report] Changing conglomerates aim for positive view from public
The conglomerates are hosting various meetings and workshops to come up with measures for co-development with their subcontractors and are also actively promoting these movements to the outside world.
Korea’s representative company, Samsung Electronics, has hosted a co-development workshop with its subcontractors.
Posco has also shared its benefits with the employees of small- and medium-sized companies that were made through improvement activities conducted together. The compensation that was shared was 17.6 billion won as of the end of August. Posco plans to share 30 billion won of compensation this year. Some companies have chosen methods to help the companies raise the ability to stand on its own through R&D support.
Lotte is helping out in entering overseas markets for its subcontractors which are having a hard time in advancing in the foreign market and reinforcing its network. One executive from a company remarked, “These movements have a meaning to be in line with the government policy but most of all it is because strengthening the relationship with the subcontractors and developing together is more important. We plan to come up with more various ways to cooperative programs so many companies can develop and grow together.”
