Global workforce diversity and inclusion
ASE's recruitment policy is based on diversity and inclusion. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, nationality, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation or age. All of the company's facilities also comply with local regulations and abide by the Code of Conduct of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA). We do not hire child labor. As of Dec. 31, 2017, ASE employed 407 disabled employees and 8,900 foreign employees. As soon as foreign employees join ASE, we arrange language classes for them to aid in their education and training. Translators are also available at our facilities. New employees are provided with information regarding local life and culture, and are guided by other senior and experienced foreign employees. All foreign workers are entitled to the same benefits enjoyed by local employees. ASE respects employees from different cultures, and does not discriminate against them. This inclusion helps us to continuously improve our team performance and innovation capabilities to better meet the demands of different types of customers and diverse markets. Meanwhile, in order to create local job opportunities and train the next generation of the workforce, ASE's Kaohsiung, Chungli, Shanghai and Suzhou facilities, as well as USI facilities collaborate with local universities to carry out joint industry-academia recruitment projects. ASE employs diverse recruiting methods, including employee referrals and alternative military service programs. It also recruits at international job fairs, on social media platforms and through online job boards.
