Strengthening Our Learning Development Infrastructure

Friendly Learning Environment
We implement a desired e-Learning platform in Taiwan and China. The e-Learning system ensures that employees may access to a learning environment without limitation of time or space, and employees may arrange their own courses and learning schedules to their sole discretion. They also can view the instructor-lead-training material saved in the system from time to time. E-learning platform utilization can reduce the natural resources used and thus be better for the Earth.

Multi-Dimensional and Plenty Learning Resources
Each year, the company introduces new online courses in addition to a broad range of learning materials such as online courses, e-books, and knowledge banks etc. that employees may study on their own outside of working hours. Since the creation of the e-Learning platform in 2006, there has been a consistent increase in the number of users and learning hours.

In order to improve and upgrade the training development quality, we follow the principles and requirements of TTQS (Taiwan Training Quality System), continue enhancing connection between the organizational needs/strategies and the training, and consistently spare no efforts towards trainees’ learning result follow-up and transfer. We won the HRD InnoPrize and the TTQS Silver Medal Prize awarded by Taiwan government- Workforce Development Agency (WDA), Ministry of Labor Affairs.
