[Sponsored Report] Hyundai firms show employees how to have fun


Employees enjoy the “Culture Concert,” held in the first floor auditorium at the offices of Hyundai Card and Hyundai Capital.

As companies become increasingly aware of the need for a work-life balance, they have implemented programs designed to improve their employees’ quality of life. Hyundai Card and Hyundai Capital now provide medical and education benefits, among others, to workers and their families - all aimed at creating a happier workforce.

One such event is “Culture Concert” through which employees can enjoy various genres of music every month at headquarters, including classical songs, musicals, opera and indie. The event is held at the auditorium on the first floor of headquarters so employees can enjoy the performances with their colleagues. They can also invite friends, lovers and family members, providing an added opportunity to show off the workplace and spend time with family members - a tough feat during busy office hours. So far, feedback has been positive. Hyundai Card and Hyundai Capital choose the program with their employees’ interests in mind, so the rate of satisfaction is quite high.

Another program is called “Family Concert,” which invites employees working at other offices and their families to a performance. That way, those working outside of headquarters can still receive this important cultural perk. In places where it is hard to rent an entire performance hall, “Family Cinema” is offered instead, and the company rents a theater and shows a film to employees and their families.

Employees and relatives can also enjoy a special sports program together. From 2003, the company has hosted a three-day, two-night ski camp each year for 250 children of employees. From this year, the company is inviting 20 employees and their families for volleyball and baseball. The employees can apply by submitting their personal stories, and children will receive stationery set and a uniform with their name engraved.

Hyundai Card and Hyundai Capital are also operating “Healing Camp,” where families can participate together in meditation and strolling in the woods. That way, entire families can manage stress in an unpolluted environment while establishing a special bond with nature.
