|Our ambition is to support our employees in their growth and development, promoting their health, safety and well-being and their overall ability to contribute to ST's business success.|
ST strives to be an employer of choice, fostering a workplace culture that encourages people to reach their potential by providing training and development opportunities, creating a stimulating working environment and rewarding success.
ST values and respects the diverse cultures and lifestyles of its employees and firmly believes that a multicultural workforce that understands the unique local requirements of our customers contributes to a more innovative and competitive global business.
We were one of the first companies to sign the UN Global Compact in 2000. We support and promote the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights and all other major international human rights standards, including the core conventions of the International Labor Organization. These standards are reflected in our corporate values and policies, particularly our code of conduct, our Principles for Sustainable Excellence, as well as in the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC) Code of Conduct that we adopted in 2005.
As a multinational company, operating in over 36 countries, ST sets company-wide policies and programs based on international best practice. These are adapted at a national level to take into account country specific legislation and cultural norms.
