- Professional Park at Samsung Electro-Mechanics -
At Samsung Electro-Mechanics' annual “1st work anniversary celebration,” 400 new employees pledged their support for "preventing cyber violence."
Samsung Electro-Mechanics' annual 1st work anniversary celebration is a place where new employees look back on their first year at the company and look forward to their future contributions. SEM employees who celebrate their first year and become "professionals" declared their "support for preventing youth cyber violence," and pledged to actively help neighbors in need.
"Support for Preventing Cyber Violence" is the Blue Tree Foundation's program that helps victims of cyberbullying. So far, about 550,000 people have signed and donated for the program, and the Blue Tree Foundation has delivered the supporters' messages to the Korean government and the United Nation.
On the same day, the new employees of Samsung Electro-Mechanics made plant pots and donated them to a nearby elementary school. Each pot was attached with a message for eradicating cyber violence, wishing for the emotional development of students and a healthy school life. Samsung Electro-Mechanics plans to contribute to forest restoration by donating one seedling for each plant pot to the wild fire-affected areas in Gangwon-do, such as Uljin and Samcheok.
Professional Jang Hoseung, who participated in the event on this day, said, "I can't believe it's already been one year since I joined the company because I still have a lot to learn. I'm proud to be able to look around my neighbors and offer a little help as a member of society while celebrating my first work anniversary. I will never tolerate cyber violence as I learned of its seriousness today and will do my best to help the victims.”
Park Bongsu, Executive Vice President of People Team at Samsung Electro-Mechanics, said, "We planned the 1st work anniversary event as we celebrate the first year of our new employees and wish for their continued success. I hope that SEM employees will become responsible members of society with the pledge to support for preventing cyber violence."
