1. Donggubat CEO strives for social well-being along with revenue growth

기사요약: 사회적 기업 동구밭의 대표 노순호씨는 프리미엄 비누 회사를 운영하며 월 매출이 4백만원 증가할 때마다 발달장애인 정규직 직원을 한 명씩 추가채용하고 있다. 현재 32인으로 구성된 그의 회사엔 20명의 장애인 정규직 직원이 근무 중이다.

[1] Donggubat CEO Noh Soon-ho, is a millennial business leader who is confident and ambitious about his aspirations to kill two birds with one stone: raise profits and employ people with disabilities to bring about a social change.

[2] His social enterprise, founded in 2014, manufactures and sells premium soaps.“I wanted to be referred to as a change-maker before graduating. I thought it was important for me to experience giving my all to a social issue as an undergrad in order for me to not have any regrets in life,” Noh, 28, told The Korea Herald.

*social enterprise: 사회적 기업
*founded: 세우다, 창립하다
*undergrad: 학부생

[3] Among the company’s 32 full-time workers, 20 are disabled. The high percentage of disabled employees stems from Noh’s management principle to hire one full-time disabled worker each time the company increases its monthly sales by 4 million won ($3,304).

*stem from: ~에서 기인하다
*management principle: 경영철학

[4] “The firm started with a goal to offer a place for people with developmental disabilities to work, so we decided to hire (them) in line with the rise in sales,” Noh said. He added the company plans to expand the number of disabled employees to 30 by the end of the year.

*expand: 늘리다, 확장하다

[1] A bustling port city on the east coast with Seoraksan in the backdrop, Sokcho, a three-hour drive from Seoul, is a much-favored summer destination for South Koreans.
