4. Best Lesson Award
As one of awards operating in Hankook Tire, The Best Lesson Award which can be called as Innovative Failure Award is given to employees who have demonstrated the core values of the company with creativeness and challenging-spirit while failing to produce a successful outcome. This annual award is given to those ① who have challenged themselves despite of the difficulty of the project, ② who have challenged with a new, creative approach rather than a conventional one, or ③ who have gained a valuable experience regardless of what the outcome of the project is. We provide a working environment in which employees can learn from their innovative failures to achieve success in the future, rather than fearing the failure itself.
