Embedding Expectations into Our Culture
The Intel Code of Conduct serves as a cornerstone of Intel culture, helping to ensure that our employees, officers, and directors maintain the highest ethical standards in all of their actions. In 2009, over 98% of our employees received formal training on the Code, which directs them to consider both the short- and long-term impacts on the environment and the community in business decisions. In 2009, we also updated our annual Code of Conduct training to add more content on our corporate responsibility expectations, including those related to the environment and human rights. Since 2003, the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee of our Board of Directors has had ultimate oversight for Intel’s corporate responsibility performance. In early 2010, we amended the committee’s charter to further clarify their role in reviewing additional sustainability issues that may impact our business.
Empowering Our Employees
One of the six Intel Values is “Great Place to Work,” which reinforces the importance of positive employee relations as a key component of our success. We support this value by cultivating open and direct communications, rewarding and recognizing our people, and investing in career development and leadership. To promote the continued innovation essential to Intel’s success, we use recognition and reward programs, leadership resources, and interactive forums to create the cultural support for risk-taking and the open exchange of ideas. In 2009, based on a study of cultural practices & employee feedback to a survey run by Great Place To Work Institute, India Intel India won the 2nd rank in the prestigious Best Companies to Work For & also a special category award for being the Best Company for Work Life Balance.
