SK Business Culture, SKMS
A systematic collection of SK’s unique management ethos and techniques, the SKMS (SK Management System) was first established in 1979. Empowered and shared by the SK People, it has underpinned SK’s corporate culture, playing a critical role in fostering SK’s unique management initiatives and corporate differentiators that have enabled SK to continuously grow and advance.
The SKMS continues to evolve as the foundation of SK’s management philosophy and corporate culture to ensure the group’s global leadership in the rapidly changing business landscape. SK People have chosen to join SK with the belief that they can be happier when working at SK. They have been faithful to such a belief, with confidence in and enthusiasm for SK management philosophy.
The ultimate purpose of SK’s business management is the happiness of SK People. As responsible members of SK, SK People will act on the conviction that cultivating the happiness of all members with the company’s organized power can also elevate their own happiness. SK will simultaneously pursue the happiness of SK People and of its stakeholders. All value that a company creates for the happiness of its stakeholders is social value. SK, by creating social value, will elevate its economic value and develop a relationship of trust with its stakeholders.
When SK People pursue their own happiness, they engage their brain voluntarily and willingly. A voluntary and willing brain engagement expresses itself in the form of Pae-gi, which means a spirit that challenges and overcomes hurdles in one’s work. People who possess Pae-gi are self-motivated; they raise issues, challenge high goals, and break existing frameworks through bold execution. In the process, they strive to develop the necessary competencies and achieve higher results by actively communicating with others. By accumulating experiences of happiness, SK People will endeavor to establish VWBE as SK’s unique culture.
