At SK, we firmly believe that a strong corporate culture is a force for sustainable growth and development.A company’s biggest asset is its members, and thus higher employee satisfaction leads to better customer service.
SKMS, the SK Management System, was established in 1979 through an agreement made by all SK group members. It implements systematic management methodology, and codifies management doctrine and philosophy.The SKMS objectives are to provide a unified management definition with which SK personnel agree and understand,resulting in a decision standard for systematic management.
The importance of SKMS lies in its cornerstone role in our path towards becoming a global leader, by creating distinct management techniques for SK based on long term practical experience in business management and dedication to research and development.
ㆍOur Mission - core rationale and focal point

ㆍOur Values - overall business objectives
Among our ultimate business goals is the satisfaction of stakeholders.
Our further goals at SK include a commitment to customer satisfaction, earning their trust, and ultimately growing alongside them. We must provide employees with an environment where they can assert their dedication and engagement. Similarly, our employees have the responsibility to contribute to the company’s development. Our company must enhance its core values to create stockholder value by increasing transparency and implementing efficient management.
Finally, the company should strive to promote economic progress, implement contributions to society through social and cultural activities, and implement ethical management consistent with accepted social regulations.
The achievements we pursue should be sustainable over the long term, and facilitate the balance of the relationships and responsibilities among stakeholders. In this manner, we can increase stakeholder value and create ongoing profit to promote future growth.
Our stakeholders include our employees, and are the main agents empowering the company. As such, they also need to actively contribute to stakeholder value and their own satisfaction, in a voluntary and committed fashion.
ㆍOur Management Principles (the SK-Way) - business methodology
SK’s management policy suggests that the company should set a pinnacle goal, that we have termed Excellent, or ‘SUPEX’ attainable at the level of top performance, and should make every effort to achieve such goal to consistently ensure value in a rapidly changing business environment.
People are the main agents of company management operating physical elements, systems, and techniques. Above all, the success of ‘SUPEX’ depends on people. Pursuit of SUPEX doesn’t simply require common thoughts and management activities, but a variety of new initiatives and ideal job performance.
SK has a strong belief that the goal of ‘SUPEX’ can be attained through maximization of the voluntary, committed engagement of the brainpower of each SK employee. The company should help each employee maximize their capabilities and lead this vast potential in a positive direction, creating definite goals and plans, and providing an environment where each employee maximizes their talent and intuition in a meaningful, involved manner.
Each SK employee should always be guided by these Management Principles, and regard them as the basis for management activities. In this manner, employees can improve their capabilities and their corporate performance in a mutual process between employees and the company itself.
