by Jungui Lee
June 2009—By examining information gathered in the 2005 Korea Labor Institute Workplace Panel Survey Mind the Gap Employer Perspective for South Korea attempts to understand the employment structure and labor demand within workplaces and to assess the human resource management systems of companies. The report highlights how quality of employment in South Korea varies across company size and industry sector.
Our analyses show that, among others, factors such as compensation, workplace flexibility, a culture of respect and inclusion in the workplace can affect the quality of experience in the workplace.
Employers around the world are challenged by the need to establish talent management policies and practices that they are globally strategic and also relevant to specific country contexts. Employers wishing to enter the South Korean market, as well as those working to retain a position as employers-of-choice can benefit from the information in this report.
