Fulfilling potential in Korea
Diageo continues to nurture talent across its markets to power our future growth.
In Korea, for example, 287 selected employees were given extra training in how to communicate and collaborate more effectively with each other. Non-managers were given basic leadership skills training.
Meanwhile, managers and supervisors explored the theory and practice of growing the business, through a two-day training course. This was delivered as part of the Asia Sales Accreditation Programme organised by the Korea HR and Sales Capability team. Using a range of training techniques and open discussion, participants were helped to enhance their skills as facilitators and functional managers.
It is also part of our ethos to extend our engagement beyond the workplace. At our Ichon, Korea plant, this took the form of a Children’s Day for employees and their families and friends. Everyone enjoyed a wide range of activities, including a garden party and sports competition; while a jumble sale raised a sizable donation for a children’s cancer charity.
