Global Recruitment and Diversity
ASEH’s corporate recruitment policy takes into account the condition and culture of the local community where our facilities operate, and the relevant job characteristics. We recruit through various channels including campus recruitment, employee referrals, industry-academia internship programs, the R&D substitute service program, executive search firms, recruitment fairs, online recruitment and digital job boards. In 2019, ASEH recruited approximately 28,000 employees in more than 20 countries. ASEH’s recruitment strategy has provided momentum for the company to continue its growth and innovation, and increase its competitive edge to meet the needs of customers and the evolving market.
ASEH has established an inclusive recruitment policy that promotes diversity and prohibits discrimination against any employee or job applicant on the basis of race, gender, national origin, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation or age. The company is committed to upholding and respecting human rights through strict compliance with local laws and regulations and the RBA (Responsible Business Alliance) Code of Conduct, and forbids the use of child labor. In 2019, ASEH recruited a total of 617 disabled employees at its facilities around the world, and the company has a higher percentage of employees with disabilities than local regulatory recommendations. For our foreign employees, we help the newly hired ones to adjust to their new work environment and understand the local culture, by providing translators at the workplace and mentors who are often senior employees from their home country. To ease their training, information and instructions are prepared in their native, or simple and easy to understand language. They are also not required to pay any fee or commission to recruitment agencies.
All our foreign employees are entitled to the same benefits as those enjoyed by their local colleagues. As of the end of 2019, ASEH employees hail from over 20 countries. Diversity and inclusion form the backbone of ASEH’s workplace culture, and contribute towards employee growth and the creation of a mutually respectful work environment. ASEH has a total of approximately 89,000 employees* working in 25 sites in eight countries. Of these, 97% are full-time employees and 3% are contract employees.
