Korean Workplace Issues

One topic I frequent is the Korean workplace. I scan Korean news for popular this one.

People who often slander their bosses or are seen as fickle in their behavior toward their subordinates ranked first in a survey of office workers of the most hated figures in the office.

In the recent survey of 717 executives and staffers at a major Korean corporation, 52.2 percent of respondents opted for superiors as particularity irritating . They were followed by bosses who took credit for their subordinates' achievement (15.9 percent), kept them late at the office (13.9 percent) and abruptly forced them to dine out (8.9 percent).

Keeping people late and forcing them to attend after work functions are common norms of the Korean workplace.
