Since reborn as an independent company in October 2000, DSME has been creating a corporate culture on the core values of Trust and Passion.
DSME defines “trust” as building partnerships and confidence with colleagues and within the organization through mutual respect and consideration, winning customer loyalty by honesty and promise-keeping, and strengthening trust between the employees and the company through transparent management.
DSME defines “passion” as completing each task with determination and persistence, being responsible for one’s actions with a sense of ownership, seeking continuous improvement for higher values instead of being complacent, and spreading the wings of self-actualization.
