Employee Healthcare

ASUS values not only employee benefits and growth, but also the relief of workplace stress. We provide a happy working environment to allow our employees to achieve a work-life balance via taking care of family and health to maximize their potential.

ASUS provides employees with annual free health examinations and forms a joint workforce with hospitals to analyze the causes of abnormalities, provide medical consultation and assistance as well as further monitoring. In addition, we hire occupational disease specialists for prevention and intervention related to overload, ergonomic hazards and maternal protection approaches, and care for employees with abnormal working hours each month as well as arrange physician and psychologist intervention to reduce their stress. Employees with high risk of soreness will receive musculoskeletal assessment, and those with moderate level or above will be scheduled one-on-one interview to solve the problems. Work safety assessment and health management are provided to pregnant female employees in order to offer these future mothers a friendly work environment.

ASUS upholds the business philosophy of “nurture, cherish, and care for employees”, and promotes better health for employees. We encouraged six healthy goals every day and held events such as stair climbing, road running, fitness slimming, cancer prevention, and smoke quitting. Every 1 out of 5 employees joined the stair climbing event whereas every 1 out of 9 employees joined an exercising club. The total weight loss was over one thousand kilograms and abnormal rate decreased by 40%. Physical test result showed 74% of the employees had done enough exercises.

ASUS had been receiving special praises as blood donation groups for 3 consecutive years. We still work hard to build a better, healthier working environment for all employees.

Caring of Female Employs

In order to take care of the female employees as mothers, ASUS provides spacious and comfortable breast feeding rooms for their need. Since 2010, ASUS had been accredited with the Good Breast Feeding Facility certification. ASUS actively informs related employees of the facilities for breast-feeding and the rights of the employees through different channels, including orientation for new employees, motherly concern consultation, the maternity leave system to advocate the advantage of breast-feeding.

Recreational Facilities

To provide employees with a positive and healthy work environment with proper balance of work and recreation, the gymnasium in headquarter equips with employee restaurant but also indoor court, fitness center, aerobics room, billiards room, swimming pool, SPA, steam room, and outdoor sunbathe area that open to our employees b before and after work to keep physical fitness to the best condition. These facilities are also open to employees and their families during holidays.

Five-Star Class Psychology Caring

ASUS establishes a variety of channels available for the timely and best assistance of its employees to actively detect potential problems confronting the organization and the employees. Through online promotional materials, blogs, a caring hotline, and by other means, employees and their supervisors can engage in positive and transparent two-way communications. This helps to build a bridge for the communication and exchange between the employees, the work force, and senior managers both internally and externally.

Employee caring hot line provides immediate assistance to employees. On the first day, employee will receive a small card (shown below) with explanation on the purpose. Human Resource Department of ASUS and Focus and Forecast Consultant Company from external professional consultants work together to provide immediate psychological and mood support as well as stress relief in work, daily life and health. For employees experiencing accidental injuries, hospitalizations due to sickness or disasters, the specialist from CSO provides emergency relief and care to employees and their family.

ASUS also encourages employees to present their opinions or ideas through internal channels such as Opinion Box. Feedbacks are classified into 4 categories: product R&D, sales and marketing, administrative affairs, and personal opinions. In 2017, the advices were all responded, and with the corporation with and supports of the relevant departments, 90% of the questions were replied within 3 days.

The contents of the website includes but not limits to tips of how to relieve the stress, positive thinking, other information that may be helpful to daily life, and schedules of self-growth seminars. The purpose is to encourage our employees and help relieve their job stress and thus reaching the work-life balance status.

Many employee caring events were posted on the website, and there were 4 seminars held in 2017. The proportion of the male to female employees was doubled, and most of these employees were single. Therefore, we planned the stress release courses and good health series seminars that covered not only on how to deal with stress from work, but also on living needs aspect to resolve communication problem between genders.

Furthermore, we held 4 internal seminars to promote sleep quality check and assist for a better sleep. An evaluation chart recommended by the “Worldwide Project on Sleep and Health” by World Health Organization was used during the testing. The trained Human Resource employee would explain and assist on filling out the form, and later advise on diet or style of life after the evaluation. Employees with serious sleeping problem will be, with his permission, transferred to a professional physician for further evaluation.

We established a psychological counseling service called Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to assist employees in dealing with personal issues affecting productivity, and provides managers with professional management counseling to solve crises and management issues. To ensure employee wellness, employee relationship division also provides emergency care referral and assistance to employees and their family.

In 2017, EAP was provided 280 person-times. The increase in the service usage rate showed ASUS commitment in improving employee wellness, solving employees' issues, allowing immediate and effective improvement of employee productivity, and thus ultimately improving the overall competitiveness of the organization

Besides employee caring, ASUS also provides emergency assistance and care, which is carried out by the Humanity function of the CSO. The scope of service not only includes emergency Solatium, but also develops customizing care programs for employees requiring long-term care. The latter provides the employees with the required assistance and support, and shows them and their family ASUS' widespread love.

In 2017, there was a case which an employee was seriously injured by accident and was suggested by the doctor to take a long rest. However, the employee was the only financial support in the family, thus he worried about the medical expenses as well as the work. Designated personnel from Humanity function of the CSO immediately initiated a customized caring project when realizing his worries and concern. We made work arrangement with the help from Human Resource and his manager, and applied a special project for one-year paid sick leave to support the employee to rest and heal. The personnel also visited the employee regularly during his recovery. This truly made the employee felt the love and caring from ASUS.

Employees can also demonstrate their talents in this area in the exhibitions.

Parent-child Relationship

ASUS firmly believes that harmony in family can augment psychological health. As such, family members of the employees are also the target for caring. The gymnasium is opened to family members on holidays to encourage family participation in sports and games. This helps to reinforce parent-children relationships and share the same hobby, and nurture positive family interactions. There are also family days and department gathering days for the family members to join. Summer camp and winter camp are also organized for the children.
