Benefit Sharing

POSCO implemented the benefit-sharing system in 2004. It allows affiliates and POSCO to carry out improvement activities together and share the resulting benefits. Participating corporations can receive various incentives in cash rewards amounting to 50% of financial results from implementing projects, long-term supply contracts of up to five years, etc. This has contributed greatly to the localization of materials, parts, and equipment.

implementation results (2018-2023)

Paying the right price at the right time

Paying the right price at the right time

To support the liquidity of funds and lessen the financial burden of small and medium-sized businesses, POSCO has been paying the full amount of all deliveries in cash since 2004. In addition, starting in 2018, the lowest price bid policy has been discontinued in favor of various fair trade bidding systems (low-price bid restrictions, market price competition bidding system, total cost evaluation bidding system, etc.).

Paying the right price at the right time

In 2019, POSCO introduced the subcontractor mutual payment system, through which POSCO guarantees the collection of payments by directly providing subcontractor payments. In addition, POSCO has expanded transactions with companies with employees with disabilities, social enterprises, etc., and provided incentives through a "preferential purchase system for socially friendly companies." Through this, POSCO strives to strengthen the industrial ecosystem with its business partners to guarantee reasonable margins and create a culture in which socially friendly companies are respected.
