Samsung was founded by Lee Byung-chul in 1938 as a trading company. Over the next three
decades, the group diversified into areas including food processing, textiles, insurance,
securities and retail. Samsung entered the electronics industry in the late 1960s and the
construction and shipbuilding industries in the mid-1970s; these areas would drive its
subsequent growth. Following Lee's death in 1987, Samsung was separated into four business
groups – Samsung Group, Shinsegae Group, CJ Group and HansolGroup. Since 1990s,
Samsung has increasingly globalized its activities, and electronics, particularly mobile phones
and semiconductors, have become its most important source of income.

information technology companymeasured by 2012 revenues, and 4th in market value),

Financial scandals

In 2007, former Samsung chief lawyer Kim Yong Chul claimed that he was involved
in bribing and fabricating evidence on behalf of the group's chairman Lee Kun-hee and the
company. Kim said that Samsung lawyers trained executives to serve as scapegoats in a
"fabricated scenario" to protect Lee, even though those executives were not involved. Kim
also told the media that he was "sidelined" by Samsung after he refused to pay a $3.3 million
bribe to the U.S. Federal District Court judge presiding over a case where two of their
executives were found guilty on charges related to memory chip price fixing. Kim revealed
that the company had raised a large amount of secret funds through bank accounts illegally
opened under the names of up to 1,000 Samsung executives—under his own name, four
accounts were opened to manage 5 billion won.
Antitrust concerns
"You can even say the Samsung chairman is more powerful than the President of South
Korea. Korean people have come to think of Samsung as invincible and above the law", said
Woo Suk-hoon, host of a popular economics podcast in a Washington Post article headlined
"In South Korea, the Republic of Samsung", published on 9 December 2012. Critics claimed
that Samsung knocked out smaller businesses, limiting choices for Korean consumers, and
sometimes colluded with fellow giants to fix prices while bullying those who investigate. Lee
Jung-hee, a South Korean presidential candidate, said in a debate, "Samsung has the
government in its hands. Samsung manages the legal world, the press, the academics
and bureaucracy".

advertising agency for false advertising. The case was commenced after the Commission

Personnel evaluation system
The personnel evaluation system is designed to grasp employee performance results, potential
capability, and growth possibility. The evaluation provides important data that allows
efficient and appropriate utilization of employee capabilities. Ultimately, the fair performance
based evaluation is intended to spark employee motivation in career development and achieve
a win-win situation for both employees and the Company. The personnel evaluation takes
place once a year. The annual performance and comprehensive capacity of each employee is
analyzed with an objective yardstick and fair observation by superiors in charge.
For transparent and fair personal management, each employee receives the evaluation results
through his or her superior and via the employee HR Portal. At the same time, as a flawed
evaluation can seriously impede the progress of both employees and the Company, personnel
online education programs centered on evaluation standards are provided for the people in
charge of personnel evaluation.
