[The Chosun Ilbo, March 20 2008] Peak Performance: LG Display Takes On the Himalayas

LG Display, formerly LG.Phillips LCD, plans to take its staff to the Himalaya mountains. As part of an extreme challenge project to make itself into the liquid crystal display industry's global leader, it will select 15 of its employees to climb to Annapurna Base Camp in the Himalayas, some 4,130 m above sea level, from March 28 to April 3.

In addition to serving as a staff bonding experience, the trek is meant to symbolize the company's goal to rise from its second place ranking in the LCD market to the summit. The idea was so compelling that 296 employees applied to become one of the lucky 15 who will go. The expedition will train in a camp for a week before making the ascent under the guidance of a professional climber.
