Intel Taiwan is offering a handsome reward to employees who recommend female semiconductor talent as part of ongoing efforts by the United States-based company to diversify its workforce worldwide.
If a recommended female worker in IC design or R&D is hired, the employee who introduces her will receive a bonus of NT$160,000 (US$5,755), double that paid for new male workers, Grace Wang (???), vice president and general manager of the Sales and Marketing Group at Intel Taiwan, told local media on Friday.
Under the 10-year "RISE 2030" project launched by Intel Taiwan, the company hopes to double the number of female workers and those with multicultural backgrounds in ranking managerial positions by that year, while raising the number of female professionals to 40 percent, Wang said.
Worldwide, the ratio of woman workers at Intel rose by 0.4 percentage points over the past year to 27.8 percent, while that of ranking female managers grew by 0.8 percent to 21.1 percent, she said, adding that female technicians will account for 26 percent by the end of this year, up from 25.2 percent a year ago.
Highlighting that Intel stresses inclusiveness and has a multicultural workforce, Wang said the company in Taiwan has also been seeking to hire talent on university campuses across the country.
