Implementation of Core Values

The facilitators are managers with professional trainer certification so that they could share their own experiences to trainees. Additionally, UMC has been popularizing the course at other employee levels since 2012. It is now a common language in UMC from the top managers to the basic level employees. By the end of 2019, there were already 18 UMC managers who were certified as program facilitators for “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.

In addition, the completion rate of this course was over 90%.

The Training of New Employees – Experiencing Corporate Culture

In order to help new employees to quickly fit in with the culture of UMC and shorten learning time, new employee training focuses on creating a learning organization. Managers from various departments all support and put effort into training new employees to maximizing the effectiveness of training. All new employees have to take training classes, and they also need to participate in U-Camp which includes organizational core value. The class is taught directly by managers, covering topics such as corporate vision, strategies and advantages. Moreover, there are classes about stress-management in the workplace and maintaining a proactive attitude. 217 employees finished the U-Camp training program for new employees in 2019 (including stress management related training).(The number above only includes indirect labor in Taiwan, and includes full-time employees and contractors).
