Work-Life Balance in Action

DuPont News, June 27, 2012

 

DuPont Korea has achieved a reputation as a "good place to work" among peer companies in terms of its commitment to respect for employees and in areas of work-life balance.

The DuPont Korea Women's Network (DWN) Work-Life Balance sub-team recently held a Kids' Day of fun and laughter for about 140 employees and their children.

Held in the Dairy-Experience Center located at Koyang City near Seoul, employees and their children enjoyed such activities as learning how to prepare cheese and pizza for lunch; milk calves; and make a mug cup by using a family picture or drawing.

“My two boys were very excited,” said Young-Tak Ahn, sales manager with DuPont Chemicals & Fluoroproducts. “My older son enjoyed the activities and a day-off from private tutoring, while the younger one enjoyed playing as a cook. An activity like this brings out the true meaning of ‘work-life balance.’ DuPont is not just a good place to work for moms and dads, but also for our family members, too.”

“I hope the fun extended beyond employees to their children,” said Sook-Yeon Hong, leader of the Work-Life Balance team.  “Our team’s tremendous preparation efforts paid off when we saw children and parents enjoy the activities so much.”

Since 2005, DuPont Korea has organized a kids' day event, which has become one of the most popular activities with employees and their families. Over the years, DuPont Korea has achieved a reputation as a "good place to work" among peer companies in terms of its commitment to respect for employees and in areas of work-life balance.
