▌Employee Resource Group

"Innovation" is one of the core values of MediaTek, and the key to innovation comes from embracing diversity, creating an inclusive and secure workplace environment that enables employees to fully realize their potential and self-actualization. 

In 2022, we have expanded our existing employee community and establish two Employee Resource Groups (ERG) to create a platform for employees to help and communicate with each other, support each other's growth, and promote dialogue among diverse groups.

1. Women in Tek

Women in Tek is a community of MediaTek focusing on empowering women to grow and create a better development journey together. WIT rolled out the “Advisor Buddy” program to recruit female volunteers in helping new female employees establish their footing in the workplace while also developing leadership skills within the volunteers themselves.

2. Global Family

Through three different areas: Networking, Culture Engagement, and Inclusive Workplace, we aim to support the continuous growth of our overseas colleagues and establish a feedback channel between our employees and the company. Our goal is to create an international talent-friendly working environment at the headquarters of MediaTek.

■ There are about 130 foreign employees at the MediaTek headquarters, with Malaysians and Indians being the largest groups.

■ In 2022, we held three events: Mid-Autumn Festival Mooncake DIY Experience, Diwali Festival Celebration, and Fireside Talk with top executives. Through these events, we created opportunities for colleagues from different countries to exchange ideas and had a relaxed chat with each other and the executives about their overseas work and life experiences.

▌Caring for Working Parents

●  Maternity protection

The Health Center carefully designs the diaper pads and muslin washcloths exclusive for MediaTek babies. Each building is equipped with standard breastfeeding rooms. A total of 39 rooms are available to the use of at least 41 employees. The Company strengthened the breastfeeding space and amenities so that a more comfortable space is made available to each breastfeeding mother.

Comprehensive amenities support and design include certification of excellent breastfeeding rooms. The Health Center monitors the list of mothers under maternity health protection. Employees on the lists of before and after childbirth are evaluated by doctors in terms of hazard assessment, hierarchical management, health protection and other adaptability assessment or recommendations.

●  Encouraging Childbirth

MediaTek's "Work Rules" adhere to the Labor Standards Act, Company is not allowed to terminate the employment of an employee during the paternity leave. Female employees are entitled to a combined of 56 days of maternity leave for the period before and after labor. Male employees may choose to take the 7-day paternity leave when their spouses are in pregnancy or during the 15-day period before and after the day of labor (or miscarriage). 

Paternity leave is also a paid leave. MediaTek also provides a childbirth cash gift to congratulate families welcoming new members. Employees may apply for unpaid parental leave if necessary. In 2022, the reinstatement rate for unpaid parental leave applicants amounted to 79%. MediaTek provides adequate assistance to reinstated employees who had taken unpaid leave, so that they are able to re-adjust to the working environment.
