CSR Focus

Reviewer Comments:
‧Innolux demonstrates a high degree of uniqueness, breaking the long-standing myth that the technological industry cannot hire individuals with physical impairment. This is commendable.
‧Innolux is committed to fully understanding the different characteristics of the physically disabled to formulate suitable work positions and establish a comprehensive guidance system. The company is coined “experts in physical disability.”
   
In 2017 the disability employment rate of different INX plants was as follows: Taiwan 1.18%, Ningbo 1.83%, Foshan 2.24%, and Nanjing 3.3%, were all above the target, except for Shanghai at 0.81%, below the target at 1.5%. In 2017 Taiwan hired 383 employees with disabilities, with a disability employment rate of 1.18%.
We extended the Taiwan experience at plants in Taiwan in early 2013. In 2017, plants in China hired a total of 615 employees with disabilities. Three, including Ningbo, Foshan, and Nanjing, of four INX plants in China reached the target at 1.5%, demonstrating outstanding performance.
The performance of INX Nanjing at 3.3% was way above the target at 1.5%. Apart from arranging orientation for employees with disabilities, INX Nanjing as established a QQ group for them to show extra care for them, raising the number to 215 employees with disabilities. INX Ningbo also hired 189 employees with disabilities. Being considerate to the inconvenient transportation for employees with disabilities, INX Foshan arranged a commuter bus for employees with disabilities and free umbrellas on rainy days to spread our care for employees with disabilities.

Competency Improvement and Workplace Health
We offered the Competency Improvement and Workplace Health course in collaboration with the Labor Affairs Bureau of the Tainan City Government and the Department of Occupational Therapy of the National Cheng Kung University. It was the first course organized through industry-academia-government collaboration for a sustainable employee-friendly workplace. On that day Director-General Hsin-chi Wang of the Labor Affairs Bureau thanked INX and hoped that such linkage with outstanding enterprises would enable employees with disabilities to demonstrate their talents, increase organizational productivity, and create a win-win situation for the industry, the academia, and the government.
