Hansoll focuses on Creating Shared Value (CSV), and identifies every opportunity for profit growth. Also, Hansoll is committed to Creating Shared Value Beyond Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
With compliance solidifying the foundation of our management, we have embedded five core values into our corporate culture. We strive to increase customer, employee and community satisfaction and create shared value for society.
Hansoll CSR department has developed its own database system to allow easy and effective reporting between overseas factories and headquarters. Hansoll CSR managers at each factory upload, organize, store and access all data through the system, which enables our CSR coordinators at HQ to collect and analyse systematically and take actions if needed. Also, the data gathered from the system are used to publish our CSR Annual & Quarterly report.
Hansoll has been publishing CSR Annual Report from 2008. Our reports indicate various aspect of corporate social responsibility of the organization that is most relevant to sustainability management and our stakeholders' interests. The reports are written in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines.
Hansoll CSR team visits Hansoll owned and partner factories and performs a total of two audits in a year. One of the two audits is a full audit that is conducted using the Hansoll Internal Assessment Form A. The other audit is conducted using the Hansoll Internal Assessment Form B. These audits are performed based on the Hansoll code of conduct, local labor law, customer requirements and industry practice generally accepted within the field of social compliance, C-TPAT, BP and environment.
Hansoll CSR believes that strong employee relationship is a crucial factor for us to bring harmonized industrial relations and high productivity. We maintain active grievance resolution system for receiving all kinds of grievance or feedbacks from our workers in confidential manner. Suggestion Box, Counseling, Hotline and Interview are used as medium to communicate between employees and company.
CSR training sessions on various topics are held regularly to provide favorable and safe working environment as we believe training is essential in improving our compliance standards. Also, Hansoll invests to promote development of stable worker-management relations through the various types of committee meetings such as Labor Union, Food, and Environment Committees, and we always keep the records and information of the meetings held.
To respond to growing environmental concerns, we take part in environmentally conscious activities, with our focus on reducing GHG emissions and participating in ZDHC. We monitor the progress through a self-developed GHG and Chemical Inventory System.
As we prioritize prevention, we focus on real-time monitoring to deal with risk factors in advance in accordance with our Risk Management Policy. When unexpected risk occurs, however, overseas CSR Managers directly report to the Senior Executive Vice President at Headquarters and factory Presidents through Hotline, which enables the top decision-making body to make prompt intervention and helps to minimize damages caused to our employees.
Hansoll is committed to supporting schools in the regions our factories are located in. We provide schools with scholarships and school supplies, and encourage students to join Hansoll after graduation. Hansoll hopes to continuously create positive social impacts and maintain strong ties with educational institutions.
