Because of you, we can reach further. Thank youAs Avnet celebrated its centennial, Avnet Taiwan also marked 25 years’ of presence in the country. We have achieved a record-high business performance last year and we attribute this success to our thousands of employees who demonstrated exemplary teamwork, safeguarded the Avnet brand and forged strong and meaningful relationships with suppliers and customers.
Avnet’s leadership team upholds the spirit of putting “People First”, and makes employees the core of our business. We organized employee-centric celebratory events, such as the release of our centennial-themed hot air balloon and annual teambuilding activities.
Employees are our greatest assets - we value the voice of every employee and set up multiple channels seeking employees’ feedback on a regular basis, such as quarterly townhalls and annual employee engagement surveys. Through these employee engagement mechanisms, we improve company-wide business strategy and enhance employee cohesion.
A workplace of well-being and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI)Every employee is an important member of the Avnet family. During the pandemic, we rendered support to employees and their families to help them through challenging times. We monitored the health of all employees and provided medical supplies such as surgical masks, face shields and test kits. Employee-related training courses and community activities were adjusted from physical to online. Specialty food products was delivered to employees to facilitate the smooth transition to conducive work-from-home arrangements.
Safety is Avnet’s number one priority. We review workplace safety and issue personal protective gear on a regular basis such as safety vests and footwear, as well as cut-resistant gloves for all employees in our logistics center, to ensure complete protection for them.
At Avnet, inclusiveness is one of our Core Values. We view it as central to creating a sense of belonging for our employees. We are committed to maintaining gender equality and equal opportunities in the workplace. Females make up 60% of employees in Avnet Taiwan and 46% of them are in the management level. Along with the epidemic and lifestyle changes, we enriched our wellness programs, such as flexible working hours and telecommuting. Besides, we enhanced maternity benefits to do better care for our female employees and also extend the eligibility to their families, e.g., increasing the pregnancy and childcare subsidies. Various employees’ activities are also supported by Avnet Taiwan to create a flexible and fun working environment.
We are honored to be awarded by the prestigious HR Asia’s “Best Companies to Work for” award for the fourth time and “WeCare” award for the second year running. At Avnet Taiwan, we live by our core guiding principle of putting our “People First” in all we do. As we move forward, we continue to strive to create a diverse and inclusive environment, which provides holistic employee care and inspires engagement that are aligned to Avnet’s sustainable business philosophy.Mike Cheng, Regional President
