Talent cultivation is the foundation of corporate sustainability, and Singtex knows that "talents are the most important assets of the Company". To train functional talents for the textile industry and enhance employee quality, we provide them with a safe workplace. To let them work with peace of mind, the Company has offered them adequate benefits to look after them and their families, thereby maintaining occupational health and safety. Furthermore, we encourage our employees to unleash their creativity and potential, allowing them to enjoy work and apply their specialized skills in a bid to grow with the group.
Singtex Group aligns the Company's needs with our employees' career development to vigorously implement relevant education and training. Singtex believes that "communication is the best management approach", hence we have endeavored to uphold our employees' rights, create a decent workplace, and establish an open communication channel. We try to ascertain our employees' needs via top-down or bottom-up communication, allowing them to understand the Company's goals for the sake of shaping an internal consensus and culture. While pursuing growth and profits, the group wishes to help our employees and businesses improve and grow by constantly creating a workplace conducive for ongoing learning and growth.
We have arranged in-depth training courses on top of the annual education and training to cultivate high-caliber talents.
By establishing the Company’s core competences, our colleagues can understand the Company’s success factors, core attributes, and foster Singtex’s exclusive advantages. For instance, team building camps, core competence courses (work management and time planning practical training courses, interdepartmental communication and crisis management practical courses.)
Singtex's employee training is structured according to various core competences, namely "new employee orientation", "professional skill training", "internal lecturer training", and "core and management vocational training". Within the above 4 systems, we have incorporated 3 models including "learning while working", "learning while training", and "self learning". The objective is to make talent cultivation more goal-driven and systematic.
The "employee feedback mailbox" has been created on the internal network platform, allowing our colleagues to voice their opinions regarding work-related problems or proposals that can boost work performance. The feedbacks will be forwarded to various responsible units, and they will dispatch dedicated personnel to resolve the problem discreetly, fairly, reasonably, and quickly before reporting the outcome and process to the management.
We convene labor-management meetings in accordance with the Labor Standards Act and relevant regulations, where the Company's senior executives and employee representatives will engage in bilateral communication based on the Company's operating conditions and employee feedback. All employee representatives can openly communicate work conditions with the management without the fear of retaliation, threat, or harassment.
In addition to relevant benefits required by the law, Singtex also provides a diverse welfare system, and the Employee Welfare Committee was established to implement various benefit measures such as company trips, birthday cash gifts, as well as wedding, funeral, and birth subsidies. Moreover, we also provide our employees with group accident insurance to ensure they can enjoy better quality of life and protection at work. This also demonstrates the Company's comprehensive measures designed to look after our employees.
To look after our employees' physical and mental wellbeing, the Singtex Group regularly organizes the "annual employee health examination" to care about their safety and health, as well as achieve the goal of corporate sustainability. We have also arranged for nurse health consultation services at various locations.
The Company launched the "one-day vegetarian" campaign to encourage our colleagues to contribute to energy conservation and carbon reduction by taking action.
Singtex has established a fitness center equipped with fitness equipment for our employees to train their physical fitness. We encourage our employees to value their health by keeping a habit of exercising, hence we have organized a variety of activities including running, hiking, and swimming across the Sun Moon Lake, etc. The aim is to integrate fitness exercises into our employees' everyday life, hoping that they can attain work-life balance and physical/mental wellbeing.

Potential man-made hazards are detected and prevented through the voluntary reaction of our colleagues on-site and inspection mechanism.
