Fair Appraisal and Compensation System
Samyang Group’s job-centered HR system manages the performance of our employees in two main pillars. One is achievement, which is the tangible outcome of performing the job, and the other is capability, such as the level of knowledge, skills and behavioral traits required to carry out the job. Capability evaluation is aimed at assessing the potential talents and abilities divided into general capability, leadership capability (manager-level), and job capability. To improve the objectivity and acceptability of the evaluation, the interaction and collaboration skills of the employee are assessed from diverse angles through interim evaluation, year-round evaluation, and multifaceted peer reviews. Absolute rating is used to ensure the validity of the appraisal. Samyang Group provides the employees with the opportunity to receive fair compensation that reflects the comparative value of each job and individual performance using the job-centered HR system that is based on the appraisal and management of employee performance and capability.
