Morality and integrity have been the core corporate culture of GIGABYTE since its foundation. We believe that operating with integrity and taking the responsibility to the society into account is also essential for corporate sustainable development.

GIGABYTE complies with the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) publicly, self-examines with the highest corporate ethical code of conduct, and establishes the Code of Business Conduct with reference to RBA to guide equal and safe working environment, legal compliance obligation, external business activities, and corporate asset protection. To urge employees to abide by this Code, GIGABYTE requires every new employee to sign the “Employee’s Ethical Code of Conduct”, and also provide education training of anti-corruption, intellectual property rights, etc., to shape an emphasis on morality and integrity by the whole Company’s members.

Ethics and Integrity Training

New Employee Training

Ethical corporate management is one of the most important components of the GIGABYTE culture. It is therefore extensively covered during orientation training to ensure that every new employee understands the spirit of the “Corporate Code of Conduct.” New employees must undergo 6 hours of orientation training on topics such as introduction to the Group, brand vision, core competency, health, and benefits. They also receive sustainability and character education in ethics, legal affairs, green quality policy, and AEO. Plant employees in particular are educated on the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA). Additional oriental training is tailored to different roles and plant areas to ensure that newcomers can settle into their new roles as soon as possible.

On-the-job Training

For employees, GIGABYTE continually provides training on ethical management, including internal audit and controls, accounting system, and ethical management, based on the requirements of their roles such as manager levels, professional levels, or foreign employees. The courses are to ensure that every employee understands GIGABYTE’s vision and mechanism of integrity management.

Sound Grievance Channels

Safe and anonymous grievance channels are provided to employees in addition to proactive training and education. The highest level that employees can send suggestions or complaints to is the vice president. Once receiving a complaint, it will be treated on a case-by-case basis and disciplinary actions will be taken if necessary. The range of complainants also expands to distributers to ensure that employees always adhere to the ethical boundaries for business dealings. The Company promises that employees would not suffer demotion, penalty, or other adverse consequences even if their compliance with the ethical rules results in business losses. We hope this would support building an anti-corruption environment. There were no violations of ethics or local laws that occurred in 2020.
