Employee Education and Training
as the Key to Success:
A Look at One of the Region’s Most Important
Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech, based in Nošovice, celebrated its fifteenth anniversary this
year. Since then, it has become one of the most important employers in the Moravian-Silesian
Region; together with its subcontractors, it has created almost 12,000 positions. It is also one
of the most attractive employers, as proven by multiple ‘Employer of the Year’ awards. You can find
out why this award is truly deserved in an interview with Klára Klepáčová, HR Manager at Hyundai
Motor Manufacturing Czech.
Mrs Klepáčová, firstly, could you please
briefly describe your journey in Hyundai
and your biggest successes?
I joined Hyundai in 2007, when the factory
in Nošovice was still in the project phase,
therefore, we started from scratch—we were
implementing processes, guidelines, rules,
benefit system and so on. We were recruiting
employees for positions that did not exist yet
102 ǀ POSITIV 3/2021
because the factory had not yet been built.
That was a very interesting experience and I
am very grateful for it.
I started as a junior learning specialist in
Hyundai but soon I moved to the recruitment
team and covered a number of projects such
as a talent program, assessment centers, the
launch of a rehabilitation center and more.
Since then, I have progressed through
various positions up to the position of HR
Manager, where I am now.
I think my career illustrates the
philosophy of the company, which is
focused on continuous growth and
development—and not only with regards
to the employees. Most of the senior staff
have worked their way up from the lower
positions like me.
