(From the left) Chemicals PG Planning and Management Team Goo Ha-yeon, Packaging PU Jincheon Plant Production Team Park Sung-hoon, Chemicals PG Planning and Management Team Lee Jun-ha, Optical Film PU Production Team Lee Sang-cheol who chose “responsibility” as the condition to enhance competency this year as they did last year.
Park: I’m in charge of the injection process, and I manage 10 facilities. The overhaul process for five facilities is complete, and I’m currently working hard on the other five facilities so I can get it done by March. I’m also managing the records of plans and current progress. Accuracy and details are important for the overhaul process, so I devote myself to collecting information.
Lee S.: As the unveiling process manager, I am in charge of managing the product changes for each item and the decline factors of yield. Some of my other important tasks also include determining significant details in product changes, adjusting process conditions in consideration of stable production, and devising appropriate measures after tracing the cause of malfunctions due to foreign matters.
Goo: I’m in charge of human resources in the Chemicals PG Planning and Management Team, mostly related to recruitment. These days I’m busy planning and conducting the Chemicals PG job training and welcoming event for new employees.
Lee J.: I work in the same department with Goo, but our jobs are different. I’m in charge of loan management of Packaging/Neochem PU, reports on overseas gas and ships, assistance in managing Chemicals PG meetings, and strategic materials/publicity of Chemicals PG.

Park: I had great difficulties in the blender facility installation and the next process of normalization. I didn’t have enough knowledge in blender facilities, and yet I had to reestablish the input line of raw materials supplied by the blender facilities. So I took care of it after learning the theory and practice with the help of on-site workers, also keeping in mind the value of thinking after doing it. As a result I could complete the normalization process and also reduce costs.
Lee S.: I faced some difficulties when revising the Winder program to improve factors that decline the fixed yield, because the client sent a negative response to the revised plan. At the time I was flustered and disappointed in myself, but I didn’t give up. I thoroughly verified the concerns of the client and confirmed that it was executable, and as a result I could also complete the application of that plan.
Goo: I had this vague fear around the time I first began the OJT last year. I told my mentor that I would receive an award after successfully completing the OJT, but without realizing it, I was worried about whether I could do well. But I went through the OJT diligently with the help of my mentor Nam Yu-na and team manager Yoon Jong-cheol, and as a result I was honored with the Bronze Prize. Once again I’d like to thank them both for their support.
Lee J.: Whenever I had questions doing something, I always asked my seniors. Sometimes I requested cooperation from outside organizations. I could finish my tasks thanks to all the support I received, and I’m really grateful for that.

Park: I think we must come to a conclusion for everything based on responsibility. I’m also working based on responsibility so that I don’t cause inconvenience to other departments and team members.
Lee S.: How about having the ownership, thinking that we’re the owners of the company? We can be armed with ownership spirit only by loving our jobs.
Goo: I recommend you to value the necessity of responsibility among Hyosung Way, and make use of it when performing tasks. Only then you will be able to start things smoothly and also end them well. Of course, you will also enjoy yourself while working.
Lee J.: We must have the competency to perform a task. Without that, we cannot do it properly. We must also pay attention to trust and communication among employees, because I’m sure that maintaining good relationships is also the basic attitude of Hyosung employees to do a good job.

Park: I constantly learn and practice the working process and methods to write a perfect business manual. I hope this effort leads to the establishment of process specification that I’m currently in charge of.
Lee S.: I’m practicing ways to become a Winder Master. The first step is to understand the correlation between winding quality and the characteristics that occur in changing the winding terms per item. The second step is to draw the optimized plan based on Step 1. It is difficult to digitize and objectify the phenomenon in managing the winding quality, so it’s tough to make decisions in many cases. So this year, I’m planning to find the best solution through a more active and innovative approach.
Goo: I try not to overlook even the smallest things. For example, I check the spelling, spacing and format of a report many times before I finish it. I thoroughly manage the things that are not so significant. I write them down on notes and stick them on my monitor, and take them off once I’m done.
Lee J.: This year, I’m going to master the skills that will help my future tasks. I’m taking accounting lectures online during weekends, and I’m going to focus on learning English conversation skills starting this summer. I think I’m losing my English skill because there’s no change to use it.

Park: I hope this year makes my heart flutter consistently. I think it would be possible if I become a person who enjoys the thrill of adventure and challenge rather than settling for the present, and anticipates success that will come from failure.
Lee S.: I want myself to grow from an amateur to a professional, and become an engineer with my own specialty and expertise as a result of fulfilling my tasks.
Goo: I want to deliver my thoughts slowly and clearly when communicating with others. My pronunciation is unclear because I’ve recently begun wearing braces, which all the more requires more effort for me.
Lee J.: Now that I’ve entered my second year and am no longer a newbie, I will try to think twice about my work and not depend on my boss or seniors.
