Samsung Electronics values recruiting and retaining high potential employees, with the belief that 'a company is its people', as specified by one of its corporate core values. Samsung Electronics regards all of its employees as the most valuable corporate assets, and thereby encourages them to perform to their utmost abilities.
Throughout 2010, Samsung Electronics continued with efforts to proactively respond to a fast changing business environment and foster a creative organizational culture to facilitate expansion of our software and solutions business as stated in Vision 2020.
Labor and management will work together to enhance the organizational culture under the mottos of Work Smart, Think Hard, and Build Trust and build an ideal workplace where all individuals can unleash their creativity.
Samsung Electronics makes every effort to create a safe and pleasant work environment. All of our production plants have obtained OHSAS18001 certification for occupational health and safety management system.
Senior executives of the company have special interest in recent concerns on workers’ cancer risk. Beginning in July 2010, we commissioned a leading international environment and health consultancy to conduct an epidemiologic survey to ensure objectivity and transparency in the survey findings. This objective investigation is expected to cover every possible cause and clear up suspicions completely.
For transparent information disclosure, we also revealed our semiconductor manufacturing process to the media and related experts for the first time. We will disclose the findings of the epidemiologic survey through a future edition of the Sustainability Report and other channels.
