HTC Code of Conduct
We place great importance on employee integrity and uphold high ethical standards. The company has established the “HTC Code of Conduct” as the prime directive that directs all our employees in the performance of their work. Every person in our employment, in any of our branches and subsidiaries, no matter their position, level and location, must comply with these ethical standards. In countries where HTC has a manufacturing presence, this Code is higher than any local regulations unless a provision is inconsistent with a legal order issued by the local government. In any case of conflict with the laws in force in places where HTC operates, the local HTC HR team shall submit the context of the laws at issue to HTC HQ for review. Except for a case such as the above, any violation of the “HTC Code of Conduct” can lead to serious disciplinary action, including the termination of employment.
New employees undergo an orientation training session on the same day they report for duty. They learn about the HTC corporate policy, the Employees Code of Conduct, ESH policy and ESG, and also including anti-corruption, sexual harassment and human right issues such as Prevent illegal violations of duties courses. An e-learning program for new employees is also provided that explains the HTC corporate principles using exemplary cases. Any bribery, embezzlement, cheating and other improper behaviors are strictly prohibited.
