(3) Voices of participants
・I am in charge of the UI design for another group company’s Webtoon service, but up until now I have only interacted with the other company’s planning staff. This was a valuable opportunity for me to have a conversation with someone who is creating content for the first time, and build a relationship that allowed me to have rough design consultations. (Designer/Link-U Group Co., Ltd.)
・I am usually in charge of developing manga apps. I still have a lot to learn in my first year as a new graduate, but when I learned at an employee general meeting that another group company was looking for our technical skills, I felt like I wanted to work hard so that I could be of help at work someday. (Server Engineer/Link-U Technologies Co., Ltd.)
・Until now, I had only been aware of myself as an employee of an affiliated company, but the general meeting of employees gave me an opportunity to view the entire group as my own. I also felt that Purpose and Torch have universality that applies to the work of any group company, and are clear and concise. I would like to reflect this in my work and actions.
