Hyosung Chairman Cho Hyun-Joon relates to his employees through sports activity.
Hyosung (KRX:004800) held “One Mind Sports Festival” on a grass field in its Anyang factory on May 11, with about 3,400 employees and their family members participating.
“Nothing can beat tight teamwork in team sports, no matter how excellent skills an individual player has,” Chairman Cho said to the participants. He emphasized Hyosung is one team. “All of us are united under the name of Hyosung,” he said.
Chairman Cho Hyun-Joon engaged with employees by playing for Hyosung Heavy Industries against Hyosung TNC in the soccer finals.
The sports festival, which marked its 17th anniversary this year, is part of Hyosung’s family-friendly management to build its employees’ sense of connectedness to and pride in their companies by giving them and their family members a time to spend together for Family Month.
The event was held for the first time after the spinoff of Hyosung Group last year. Also, for the first time in a long time, employees of Hyosung Corporation, the holding company, and its affiliates -- Hyosung TNC, Hyosung Advanced Materials, Hyosung Heavy Industries and Hyosung Chemical -- got together.
Employees and their families enjoyed the sports day which featured tournament competitions in soccer, group jump rope and relay, and family picnic events including caricature drawing, henna & face painting, a kid café, children’s fun games and performances.
