The news media will often publish articles about the horrible conditions workers must endure at factories overseas. This is a more than common occurrence, especially in developing nations. If you are considering sending your projects to an overseas company, we strongly recommend checking the quality of the company, not only in their work, but on how they treat their employees.
Part of the purpose of making this website is to assure viewers that at Pacom, we do things the right way. From regularly scheduled internal and external audits, to company planned activities, being employed at Pacom is treated like being part of a big big family.

Pacom also has a program where smokers are encouraged to stop smoking in a monthly “Stop Smoking” challenge. Participants have a chance to get monetary rewards if they refrain from smoking over periods of times. In fact, for good measure, they are tested for nicotine to keep the game fair.
Table Tennis Breaks
One of the most popular activities at Pacom is table tennis. Next to the cafeteria, table tennis tables have been set up for workers to play during breaks. Not only is it a way to exercise, we can honestly boast some of the best players in the area.
A very popular sport in South Korea is called footvolley. It is a combination of soccer moves in a volleyball structured game. That pasttime is often played by workers during breaks, but in the past, Pacom has also participated in friendly local competitions as well.
Group Field Trips
Every year in October, Pacom hosts a company wide field trip. The company will closed down for a business work day and all workers come together to do something together. Near the factory, there are quite a few mountainous regions that have scenic and enjoyable hiking trips. Such activities allow members from various departments that might not often get a chance to meet each other, to spend some quality time together.
