In order to succeed in a competitive industry, we engage in initiatives to attract, develop and retain top talent. We recently launched a program called “Team Next Gen” in Europe as part of our innovative talent acquisition strategies. This ten-month training program was designed to attract local talent, focusing primarily on our apprentices and university graduates. The program is comprised of multiple elements, including skills enhancement trainings, micro-learning modules, on-the-job training, community activities, and training surveys. The skills enhancement training supplements the participants’ technical training to ensure we have the right people with the right skills for the future. Recognizing the impact of soft skills on employee well-being and organization wellness, the program includes trainings on communication skills, emotional intelligence, time management, creative and innovative thinking, and well-being and stress management. Local community engagement is a key component of this program. By becoming STEM ambassadors, the program participants can promote careers in STEM in local schools where we attract future Diodes employees. In addition to advancing personal and professional growth, these foundational building blocks are conducive to fostering an inclusive environment where employees feel valued and engaged.
