Hana Financial Group Chairman Kim Jung-tai said Monday that the group will place a top priority on achieving mutual prosperity and growth among stakeholders by boosting a sense of community.
Under the corporate vision NEXT 2030, Hana employees will redefine relationships with co-workers, customers, shareholders and the community at large, a step that Kim views will boost the "interest of all stakeholders."
This was part of the corporate message announced at the 14th anniversary of the group's foundation at its headquarters in Seoul. The ceremony was attended by over 250 executives and workers from the group including heads of key subsidiaries.
"From now on, Hana Financial Group will reset its business strategy whereby values are created for all parties involved," Kim said.
"To that end, our business models and procedures will be completely rebuilt through workers' playful attitude toward work. These efforts will be also defined by immersion, communication and execution," he added.
Under the new business model, Hana will seek to come up with solutions to problems experienced by customers and society at large.
The group said that an effective work procedure will be implemented via digitization-mediated close cooperation and collaboration among firm workers and other industry players.
The group will nurture workers with financial acumen with an inherent ability to be flexible and stay focused at all times, and who possess the key qualities needed to have motivated workers with a strong work ethic to better advance its corporate vision.
Kim stressed the need to adopt an agile work culture as soon as possible.
"The next decade will be defined by rapid changes of values and technologies, with borders between different industries increasingly blurred. Trust and a people-based corporate strategy will facilitate mutual growth and happiness," he said.
The group plans to boost its corporate social responsibility by increasing support for the socially neglected including the disabled.
It will also provide greater financing opportunities for firms whose sustainable business model boosts social values.
Hana said that it will continue to make a generous contribution to state-run daycare centers to enrich a social culture that values the community and a sense of shared responsibility for childrearing.
