Kia Motors Slovakia organized “Open Door Days” for families of its employees. During four days, from October 23 – 27, except Tuesday, the company was visited by almost 1,000 family members. The programme of a 4 hour visit included a visit to the Training Centre, where through a short promotional video and presentation, relatives get to know the basic information about the Kia project in Slovakia. After visiting the Training Centre, the plant tour followed and families viewed the press, body, assembly and engine shops. At the end, refreshment and a little present as a remembrance of this day were waiting for them.
Reactions to the visit of the plant were very positive. The majority of questioned people were mainly surprised by enormous size of the plant. They enjoyed the plant tour very much and appreciated the pleasant working environment and cleanness. However, robots and the latest production technology made the biggest impression.
