[Sponsored Report] Hyundai Capital hosts a meeting of the minds

Nov 26,2018
Recently, seven employees from six different countries, including Germany, the United States, Brazil, Britain, Canada and Korea joined the Hyundai Capital Yeouido headquarters as Global Corporate Culture Ambassadors (GCCA). They visited the Korea headquarters in western Seoul for the week-long 2018 GCCA Workshop.

Hyundai Capital is a global company that has expanded into 10 countries around the world and has six financial corporations and four consulting corporations. As more than 10,000 employees with different nationalities and languages work scattered around the world, it is important that they share a consistent corporate culture and share the Global One Company value.

Seven GCCA members were selected from six corporations, including Korea Head Office (HCS), Hyundai Capital USA (HCA), Hyundai Capital Canada (HCCA), Hyundai Capital Brazil (HCB), Hyundai Capital UK (HCUK) and Hyundai Capital Bank Europe (HCBE). Their role is to take the lead in creating the aforementioned bridge between the companies. Over the next year, GCCA will work as the bridge that leads exchanges and communication between corporations.

One of the impressive points is that GCCA members are selected from employees who are not in charge of corporate cultural affairs. Hyundai Capital decided that the voices of employees should be a channel to connect with other corporations, while at the same time helping colleagues understand the global corporate culture. Employees who voluntarily participate in corporate culture activities were selected to serve as GCCA because, in order to be an ambassador, they should have an understanding of and a strong interest in the corporate culture.

GCCA members, who do not work in Korea, were invited to the Korea headquarters in western Seoul to open a workshop, because it is difficult to see how global corporations connect with each other without being face to face. In fact, in this workshop, GCCA members were surprised at the fact that Hyundai and Kia Motors’ sales models differed from each other in their work processes. That’s why the purpose of the 2018 GCCA Workshop was to see, hear, feel and learn.

This workshop was completed according to schedule, but the GCCA’s real work begins now. First, the GCCA will go back to their respective corporations to have a global corporate culture session. In addition to sharing the corporate culture of Hyundai Capital they have experienced, they will find news and untold stories from their corporations and share them over the internet and through social media.

Expectations are particularly high for #BuidingBridges, a project the GCCA named after the workshop. The project conducts relay interviews with employees in various divisions working in global corporations to inspire a sense of belonging through Global One Company values and with the pride of being employees of Hyundai Capital.
