Innovation drives Kogas’ practices
Kogas actively encourages employee involvement in each step of its work processes. Employees voluntarily engage in community of practice (CoP) activities to create resources and improve problem-solving skills.
A total of 484 CoPs were in operation last year. If more than three people have ideas for business improvement, they can form a CoP and upload the results of executing an idea on a knowledge management system (KMS), turning them into resources for other employees to refer to. Kogas annually selects and rewards the best practices to encourage innovation.
Efforts for innovation in management also boosted Kogas’ financial performance. Achievements through knowledge management activities resulted in revenues of 315.8 billion won last year, 71.2 percent higher than the previous year.
