Introduction of horizontal in-house culture centered on MZ generation [Edaily Kim Hyun-ah] Virtual asset exchange Bithumb
Bithumb, a virtual asset exchange, is working hard to create a horizontal corporate culture. This is in response to the recent rapid increase in the number of MZ generation employees. In-house communication methods are also diversifying, such as utilizing various social media channels and conducting in-house campaigns.
According to Bithumb on the 21st, as of March of this year, there were a total of 342 employees working at Bithumb Korea, and the average age was 35 years old. In particular, there are 279 MZ generation employees born between 1981 and 2010, accounting for 80% of the total number of employees.
As a company based on MZ generation employees, Bithumb significantly improved its rank system last year.
The ranks, which were previously classified as employees, assistant managers, and general managers, were unified into team members and a nim culture was introduced for a culture of mutual respect. Recently, domestic global companies are actively introducing the ‘neem’ culture to create a flexible and horizontal organizational culture.
A communication channel was also created where employees could freely exchange opinions. Since August last year, Bithumb has been operating the ‘Bithumb House’ weekly through the audio social media clubhouse, where the CEO and other executives explain major issues of the company and continue to ask and answer questions in a comfortable atmosphere.
At Bithumb House, ▲Travel rule construction status ▲Personal information protection ▲Suspicious transaction reporting system, etc. from key issues for virtual asset exchange operation ▲My brand value in 2022 ▲What are you doing at the end of the year? Even the smallest topics are covered extensively.
Travel rule is a legal obligation for virtual asset business operators to identify the identity of the sender and receiver and report it to the financial authorities when a transaction of 1 million won or more occurs. Effective from March 25th.
From the first half of this year, the blogging event, which was temporarily suspended due to social distancing, will also start.
Bithumb held a blogging event to take a walk and pick up trash twice last year for employee health management and environmental protection. Employees who participated in the event commented that plogging was able to naturally unravel the exchanges between departments that had been separated by telecommuting.
A Bithumb official said, “From this month, we are paying great attention to employee refresh, such as supporting Ananti resort condos, which are highly preferred by MZ generation, through the welfare fund from this month. We will do our best to create an environment where you can focus.”
