Human Resource Structure and Recruitment

Human Resource Structure

ASUS has established operation offices located in Asia-Pacific, Europe, America, and Africa. ASUS in total had around 14,700 employees worldwide, with 6,900 employees in the headquarters in Taiwan, and the rest of them in China and overseas.

The proportion of ASUS' global female employees is 38.5%, and the proportion of global female managers is 26.3%. This can mainly be attributed to the characteristics of the IT industry, in which most employees are males. However, there is no discrimination or unfair treatment due to gender

In 2020, the return to work rate for females after parental leave in Taiwan and after maternity leave in China was 84% and 94%, accordingly; the retention rate for females after returning to work for 12 months in Taiwan and in China was 84% and 81%, respectfully. The high return to work rate and retention rate in Taiwan and China show that ASUS would not force females to leave due to pregnancy or parenting and that it is committed to providing a gender equality environment.

ASUS does not discriminate against people based on race, sex, age, political affiliation, religion, or disability status. We follow the local minimum age requirements, local regulations, RBA Code of Conduct, and other relevant provisions, as well as announcing our Declaration on Human Rights policy in accordance with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Demand for Key Technical Talents

AI Talent

Four AI Medical Technologies to Accelerate the Implementation of Smart Healthcare

To gain a firm foothold in smart healthcare, ASUS has invested quite early and recently has accelerated its pace in the development of this industry. The ASUS Intelligent Cloud Services Center (AICS) includes public artificial intelligence platform, data platform and medical Internet of Things platform. The four major applications on the technology side, includes intelligent coding, medical big data search engine system, unplanned re-admission patient vector analysis technology, adverse reaction drug history and medication safety system, which will greatly assist hospitals in data consolidation and digitization. By leveraging core AI technologies such as natural language processing, medical image analysis, and big data analysis, we help hospitals implement smart healthcare.

  • ASUS Joins Forces with National Taiwan University Center for Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Robotics
    ASUS Zenbo Junior, the first business robot from ASUS, helped create specific applications quickly and easily through rich and easy-to-use development tools and Application Programming Interface (API). By combining the technology and resources of both parties, we will jointly develop multiple applications in the fields of health care and education, and create robotic solutions that can be managed flexibly and in a more realistic real-world applications context.
  • MEET UP R&D Talent Exchange
    ASUS hosted sharing and exchange sessions on artificial intelligence to introduce the hottest applications, natural language processing, as well as sharing the challenges and insights of practical implementation in the medical field. The sharing focused on different AI topics and was suitable for AI beginners or those who were interested in learning AI on their own.
  • Open House Event
    The AICS team set up a product exhibition area, an interactive communication area and used a form of Office Tour to let the general public get to know the team and the working environment, bridging the distance between people and AI and at the same time immerse in the open working environment of ASUS.

Cloud Talent

  • MOST NCHC
    Promoted by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), the National Center for High- Performance Computing (NCHC) of the National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs), together with ASUS, Quanta and National Taiwan University, had jointly developed and built the Taiwania 2 Supercomputer and Taiwan AI Cloud for the past three years, which have benefited many scientific and commercial applications. ASUS has been laying out cloud software and scenario applications for more than 10 years, accumulating its own cloud and IoT (Internet of things) and AI technologies and investing in AI cloud platforms with the national team to jointly promote the digital transformation of Taiwan's industry, government, academia, research and new start-up companies.
    The Taiwania 2 Supercomputer is ranked 20th in the world in terms of computing power and is 100% Taiwan-built. In addition to having the computing and storage platforms needed for digital transformation, we helped the country build core strategic industries and enhance the forwardlooking infrastructure for Taiwan's digital development and information security.
  • Building a Smart Future City with Taichung City Government and National Center for High-Performance Computing
    ASUS Cloud integrated the Smart City Cloud Platform (SCCP) developed by Taiwan Computing Cloud (TWCC) and the DAS (Data Acquisition System) cloud data analysis service from the NARLabs' NCHC to explore the impact of mobile pollution sources on air quality through air quality and traffic flow data at key intersections in Taichung City, which served as an important reference for urban governance.

Academic-Industry Cooperation Training Program

  • Taiwan Tech Enterprise Academy
    ASUS has been holding the "Taiwan Tech Enterprise Academy" jointly with the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology for five consecutive years. This year, 31 students were enrolled and the lecturer was a department head from ASUS. From planning a series of courses, going to campuses to discuss theories with students, and designing practical case discussions and presentations, this program aims to allow students to experience the perspectives of enterprises in problem solving, analysis and real-world applications. The program also assists students in creating customized career exploration courses to understand their personal strengths and areas for development, and helps clarify and advise them on their prospective career development.
  • ASUS and National Yang-Ming Chiao Tung University have established the "Huayang Project" Industry-Academia Cooperation Research Center
    Starting from the usage scenario of the healthcare industry, the project seeks to help Yang-Ming University Hospital to build a structured and standardized clinical database with the integration and innovation ability of artificial intelligence. Both parties plan to launch the "AI for Medical" internship and doctoral program. From programming courses and research directions to clinical applications, ASUS has formed a complete training process for interdisciplinary talents in information science and biomedicine.

ASUS actively cooperates with universities in various fields of expertise and academic exchanges, e.g., cooperates with professors from National Taiwan University and National Yang-Ming Chiao Tung University to research and develop solutions to practical problems in 5G/communication fields. We hope to recruit and nurture more outstanding talents by helping students to deepen and develop their skills and by combining theory with practice.

Cultivating Employer Brand

In addition to recruiting talents from recruiting companies and campuses of colleges and universities, we also cooperates with LinkedIn to stabilize the employers branding to improve recruitment accuracy. In 2020, we successfully recruited suitable talents for 60 branches worldwide and the number of followers were increased by more than 124,000 on LinkedIn. We have extended the brand power to talent recruitment, and ASUS has become the most popular Taiwanese brand with most fans.

ASUS has won the LinkedIn: "Most Engaging Employer Brand" for four consecutive years (2017- 2020), and has been praised by the Top Talent Team. At present. ASUS is the No. 1 in the total number of followers among Taiwanese brands on the LinkedIn platform, and the number of Taiwanese students following also led the pack. We continually expand the influence in the global talent community.

In 2005, we began to invest in the internship program "Campus Executive Officer" (ASUS Campus CEO). Over the years, it has trained more than 1,000 outstanding students and won the Taipei City Government's "Award of Excellence" for four consecutive years.

Since 2017, ASUS has worked with the Taipei City Employment Service Office. More and more students in school continue to improve their career experiences and strength the skills through diversity training and practical work experience methods to further establish personal development goals. It is hoped that through a complete internship plan, we can cultivate more outstanding talents while creating a win-win situation for the enterprise and the youth.

The "Cheers" magazine has published the "Most Attractive Employer" listing since 2006, allowing companies to understand the way of thinking of the young generation when they are looking for jobs, and college and university students who have just graduated to grasp the market dynamics. ASUS has been listed in the "Top 100 Most Attractive Employers" for years consecutive years.

Talent Recruitment and Talent Pools

In May 2020, we established a multinational recruiting team to assist in recruiting and building talent pools for key positions across Asia-Pacific, Europe and the America region. We will continue to strengthen the recruitment process and enhance the regional talent pool in order to select the right talents to join the company's global operations.
