Stakeholder & Employee
In the pursuit of its business strategy of openness, ASPEED has established a number of internal and external effective and transparent communication channels, to enable any interested party to understand our business operations and our endeavors in corporate social responsibility.
Employee's Rights and Interests
Our employees are our most valuable asset and we are committed to providing a safe and comfortable working environment, good education and training, and complete compensation and benefits. To fully abide by the safeguards in the "Labor Standards Act" and related laws and regulations, we have specialized personnel to deal with employee issues and to ensure employee's rights and interests. In addition to the statutory employee welfare committee, our company has a monthly employee welfare budget spent on various welfare measures. We also offer in-house and external education and training to our personnel, a stock option program, etc. Lastly, in accordance with the Labor Pension Act, we set aside pension contributions into our employees' personal accounts with the Bureau of Labor Insurance on a monthly basis. All our policies related to management-labor relations comply with relevant laws and regulations, and our labor relations are good. Our company's "Health and Safety Code of Practice" sets norms and practices for a safe and healthy working environment, and also stipulates education and training on these topics. We also offer annual health checks to enable employees to understand their health status and take further action if needed.
If employees have any queries or suggestions, they can communicate with their managers by telephone or e-mail. They may also directly complain to their manager or the general manager, after which a designated staff member will handle the issue.
