Hana Financial Group announced Sunday that it hosted a presentation with renowned psychiatrist Dr. Oh Eun-young late last week to provide practical advice for the group's employees to address mental health issues both at work and at home.

About 500 workers attended the event held on Friday at Hana Global Campus, the financial group's employee training facility located in Incheon. Dr. Oh gave advice, ranging from career to child rearing, based on stories sent by those who attended the event.

With the huge popularity of Dr. Oh in the country for her frequent appearances on various TV shows and other events, the financial group had to draw lots to select the 500 people who would be able to attend the event, out of numerous applications sent in from the group's 15 subsidiaries and related companies. Over 2,000 employees, who could not attend the event in person, watched the event online.

Hana Financial Group Chairman Ham Young-joo also participated in the talk event, asking Dr. Oh about the ideal role of a CEO in promoting the happiness of the group employees. Dr. Oh said the financial group hosting such an event itself shows the chairman's effort to tend to employees' mental health. She went on to say that both the management and employees should regard each other with gratitude, rather than taking each other for granted.

"As a CEO, I will strive to make a happier organization to resolve each one of the employees' concerns and worries," Ham said, stressing the need for love and gratitude, despite hardships in life.

Hana Financial Group has been placing priority on each employee achieving a "work and family balance" so that they can lead a happy life at both work and at home. The group aims to continue to provide various welfare programs, supporting employees' balanced life goals.
