At Hankook Tire, we recognize the vast potential of all employees and are making strong efforts to maximize their potential. Through quality training programs and an impartial personnel system, we are creating a happy workplace where employees feel their potential is being recognized.
Background of This Issue
Respecting human rights has become norms and standards globally for companies, not to mention the growing interest and expectation of stakeholders. As human rights management is emerging as a key issue, this highlights the need for transparent and responsible corporate practices.
Risks & Opportunities
If we fail to respect the human rights of employees and fail to fully engage them in communication, it will result in the outflow of human resources, which are the key to our growth, and finally, it could even tarnish our reputation. On the other hand, if we embody in ourselves human rights management practices and develop our competence through open communication and fair HR systems, it would become the drive for us to grow.
Hankook Tire’s Policy
Following our Human Rights Declaration in 2015, we evaluated our status of human rights management to pave the way to establish a human rights management system. Our plan is to foster facilitators at each of our headquarters to efficiently identify relevant issues in Korea and abroad and to develop an effective grievance mechanism. We will also improve our human rights training materials to raise employees’ awareness on human rights across the board.

Future Plans & Outlook
To protect the human rights of our employees, we established human rights management system and we are strengthening our human rights competence. We will extend the scope of our human rights management to our suppliers and across the entire supply chain. As part of our human rights policy, we will increase the ratio of disabled employees and female managers to bring diversity to our employee portfolio and advance our employee diversity management system in the long term.
