  • Growth through Futuristic Innovation, Top Talent, Outstanding Competencies for CJ's Future and Talent

    CJ Group Chairman
    Lee Jay-Hyun

  • Since 1995, CJ has been recognized and beloved by offering new lifestyles to consumers through a consolidated future-growth driven portfolio consisting of food, bio, culture, logistics, and retail. CJ challenged global markets and continued a legacy of dynamic growth. In 2021, CJ responded to and overcame turbulent times that came in shifting directions and speeds. Through such experiences, we recognized the need to revolutionize, revamp, and prepare for the future.

    The main focus of our revolution is “CJ’s future and talent”. Moving forward, CJ will concentrate on growth through futuristic innovation by securing outstanding competencies such as trends, technologies, and marketing. We will also revolutionize corporate culture for our top talents who will lead such innovative growth, to progress towards a futuristic lifestyle company that designs innovative lifestyles for all people around the world. We will accelerate global and digital expansion of our existing businesses with culture and platform-based directions and measures. We will also actively pursue growth through futuristic innovation by establishing new businesses that are ESG-based and reflective of universal trends. To carry this out, we will preserve underlying fundamentals of “wellness”, which can be defined as better lives for all, and “sustainability”, which is built upon fairness, removal of power abuse, and coexistence.

    With our four future growth engines at core, CJ will expand into new fields and domains, actively venture into innovative M&As, and continuously discover and develop great business opportunities in the newest promising industries, IT and BT fields. The means to innovative growth will also change. We will generate fused synergies by ardently collaborating with others through open innovative measures. Not only will we invest in tangible assets centered on infrastructures and systems, but we will also actively invest in intangible assets such as brands, future innovative technologies, AI, big data, and most importantly, talented people. First-class competences will be secured that surpass those of our competitors.

    The key to such goals is securing exceptionally talented people. Our people, CJ’s top talents, continue development by gaining equal opportunities through fair competition and by receiving exceptional recognitions for stellar performances. Anyone can become a leader, regardless of age, years of experience, or position, as long as they display a portrait of topnotch competencies and a strong will. We promote a culture that is boundless and welcomes challenges. Our people can freely practice “self-directed” work that is not bounded by time and space. Each employee has autonomy to refresh accordingly and challenge themselves in different business and position opportunities as much as they desire. By cultivating such an innovative corporate culture, we will design CJ so that the very top talents want to join, work, and share growth with us.

    CJ’s new challenge for “CJ’s future and talent” will not just end as a statement, but will be proved through immediate implementation and performance. Such potential for future growth will maximize the means of our corporate values for markets and customers. To this date, CJ’s exceptional talents have been practicing the Group’s core values of ONLYONE; being first, best, and different. Our people were always at the forefront of challenges, putting forth the best efforts, and finding different paths. As a result, we were able to influence the daily lives of people around the world with our cultural power of food, film, and music etc. We were also able to expand the stage for youths by cultivating industries through K-Brands, and furthermore, authentic CJ brands.

    We desire to take it a step further. CJ aims to “make daily lives healthier and happier, present exciting and beautiful moments to all people around the world, and keep the Earth sustainable.” We will venture into a successful journey with our people, CJ’s exceptional talents. Together, we will create a new future.
