Employment Terms & Benefits

Sejong takes pride in offering generous and competitive employment packages, terms and benefits. We believe that an attractive package is key in our commitment to recruit and retain quality teachers. Our HR arm conducts an annual review by pitting what we have on offer against the employment terms and benefits being offered by large Korean companies and the big language academies in Korea. We also conduct annual HR reviews where a representative from our HR department or administrative department has one-to-one chats with all staff members to keep tabs on their general welfare, quality of work-life, and ask for feedback on what innovations and improvements we can consider moving forward. We aim toward an inclusivistic approach to work environment creation and maintenance, and welcome feedback from all team members on ways we can continue to make Sejong a better place to be. A Summary of our Package (last reviewed March 2016):
