Recently Job Planet and Fortune Korea co-hosted 'Korea’s Top 50 Working Environments' at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul.

A studyvwas conducted of both large scale companies as well as small & medium sized enterprises, including the startups. From April to November a short list of 792 was chosen from a total of 140,000. After final assessment, 50 companies were awarded on the night.

The criteria to select the most satisfying work environment were as follows: Potential for promotion, wages and welfare, balance between work and personal life, work atmosphere, and management.

For the large-scale companies, SK Innovation and Woowa Bros were nominated as the best.
