Team Setup



We put together an efficient team for you


The working structures in Korea usually differ in many ways from the Western structures you are familiar with. The corporate world in Korea is strongly influenced by Confucian philosophy and basic concepts of this system include respect for age, the principle of seniority and hierarchical thinking, which is quite different from Western standards.

These concepts play an important role in team setup, because age and work experience differences are taken very seriously by Koreans. Consequently, these features also need to be kept in mind by foreigners when handling HR issues and searching for appropriate candidates. In this regard, the uniqueness of Korean titles within a company is worth mentioning, as they clearly structure the hierarchical relations between the employees and cannot be overlooked.

Nowak & Partner's experienced team is well familiar with Confucian concepts and Korean hierarchical structures, and can easily put together a coherent and harmonious team.

Your goals

  • You have set up a subsidiary in Korea and now need an efficient and reliable Korean team.

  • You would like to put together an international team of Korean professionals and foreign specialists which works reliably and in harmony.
  • You already have a business in Korea, however you intend to implement changes within your team without disrupting daily operations so your new team is immediately fully operational.
