Overview of Human Resource Structure
With regards to HTC’s global allocation, hiring and retaining motivated and exceptional employees is a key objective of HTC’s human resources strategy. HTC hires new employees through open selection procedures, with candidates offered positions based on merit. We permit no discrimination based on ethnicity, skin color, social status, language, religion, political affiliation, country / region of origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, appearance, disability, professional association membership or other similar considerations not relevant to job performance. According to HTC global expansion requirement, we recruit elites with diversity around the world via various channels to spread the HTC innovation spirit.
HTC recruits promising talent from all around the world. At the end of 2021, HTC global employee workforce totaled 2,178. Of these, 27.59% were foreign supervisors, accounting for the total number of global executives above manager level; foreign supervisors and professionals accounted for 17.55% of the total number of global executives and professionals, and 26.24% of the supervisors were women.
HTC’s turnover rate of direct workers in 2020 was 8.31%*, with the statistical frontier encompassing the Taiwan region (including students involved in industry-university cooperation programs, interns, and foreign workers). The indirect workers turnover rate was 22.92%, with the statistical frontier covering the world.
*Note: Turnover rate= the number of employees leaving the company/ the total average number of employees per year. The figure does not include employees who were involuntary resigned employee.
In 2021, a total of 937 R&D workers joined HTC globally, accounting for 43% of HTC's global employees. In addition to those in Taiwan, we have many R&D employees coming from, or based in, other countries, such as Europe, America, and Asia. We expect that the different cultural backgrounds of our diverse employees will fuse and fuel innovative thinking, so as to support HTC in the development and launch of products that meet consumer needs in different regions and with different cultural characteristics.
