Recommendations NOTE: Theserecommendation tools are given in general though we understand any organizationhas to look up for many different factors while designing its policies.Although we found LotteKolson as one of the ideal places to work, however, we believe a slight changein its policies may result in a recognized growth of the company. For instance,Unannounced appraisalsmay work as a tool to assess the behavior of employees in a more effective way.Moreover, it helps to sort out the performers and non-performers in anorganization.
Therefore, Lotte Kolson, instead of providing informed yearlyappraisal should go for uninformed ones.Although the workingenvironment is open and flexible, however, the company should work on providingflexible working hours to its employees as well.Lotte Kolson shouldconduct on-campus drives for recruitment, which may help them in hiringinspiring and creative talents.There should be awhistleblowing policy within the organization to empower employees and ensureaccountability.
