Intel Taiwan won the CommonWealth Magazine’s 2016 Corporate Citizenship Award for its various social care programs as well as ongoing encouragement of employee volunteerism to support the Intel Involved Matching Grant Program. In 2015, more than 8,000 volunteer hours logged in Taiwan won the recognition from the CommonWealth Magazine’s judging panel for Intel Taiwan to become a third-place winner in the 2016 award’s category of foreign companies in Taiwan.
The Corporate Citizenship Award has four criteria, company governance, corporate commitment, social engagement, and environmental protection. Since 2010, Intel has been a winner in the category of foreign companies in Taiwan for seven years. Since 2011, the company has been one of top-five winners in the category for six years.
In 2006, Intel commenced its Intel Involved Matching Grant Program in Taiwan to encourage employees to dedicate themselves to public interest volunteer activities. For every 10 volunteer hours dedicated, the Intel Foundation will donate US$100 to the organization that a volunteer has worked for. Intel Taiwan engages in environmental protection, community service, and innovation programs for young people, providing a variety of volunteerism to encourage employees to care for the society.
