As a leading international semiconductor foundry company, Vanguard International Semiconductor Corporation (VIS) strives to provide total solution of specialty IC foundry services.
Upholding Ethical Business Practices
In our daily work, it is fundamentally imperative that the working environment is one that emphasizes business ethics, honesty, and cooperation. These principles reveal a company's character and virtue.
Having a high level of business ethics means:
We always tell the truth.
We don't exaggerate; we don't show off.
We don't make promises to customers easily. But once we make a promise, we devote ourselves completely to fulfilling that promise.
Within the industry, we compete to our fullest within the limits of the law, and we do not intentionally slander others in order to gain benefit ourselves. We also respect the intellectual property rights of others in our field.
We choose vendors through an objective, consistent, and impartial selection process, to make sure we work with the most compatible and competent suppliers.
We are determined to create a working environment based on trust, honesty, sincerity, and cooperation. Therefore, we do not tolerate any form of corrupt behavior or politicking, as "company politics" is forbidden. When selecting new employees, we place the greatest emphasis on the person's qualifications and character, not his or her connections or "guan-xi".
Focusing On Core Business
Our core business is providing integrated circuit manufacturing service. Within this area, we will strive for technological innovation, but always keep our core business in sight. By focusing purely on this service, we can take full advantage of the impressive growth rate of the IC industry. Therefore, we should channel our effort and energy to "designing, manufacturing, and marketing semiconductor" for maximum achievements.
Internationalized Operation with View on Global Market
We have always targeted the global market, rather than limiting ourselves to just Taiwan or any one specific market. This is because the semiconductor industry is an international business, and anyone who wishes to be a big player must expand globally. We must be able to compete against multinational firms in the international arena, or we will lose our competitive edge in the local market as well.
By internationalization, we mean maintaining roots in Taiwan while extending our branches to various parts of the world. In response to the cultural needs of diverse international development, VIS offers equal employment opportunities to talents of all nationalities.
Focusing on Long-term Strategies, Striving for Sustainability
To achieve sustainable operation is like running a marathon. It requires coordination of speed, endurance, and strategy, and is very different from sprinting the 50- or 100-meter dash. We truly believe that, through long-term planning and careful execution, we will minimize the chances of facing unexpected and unprepared situations.
In addition to making an annual long-term strategic plan for the next five years, we also devote a large part of our daily work to the implementation the long-term plan and ensure its outcomes.
Customers as Partners
Since the very beginning, VIS has treated our customers as partners and never competed against them. This is a key strategy behind our success and is a crucial factor to our continued growth in the future. At VIS, customers come first; their competitiveness reflects our competitiveness, and their success is our success.
Pursuit of Quality of Work and Service
Quality is important both internally and externally. Every person, from employee, customer, to shareholder, is a customer, and the level of customer satisfaction from all these people is a measurement of our quality.
It is the responsibility of every VIS employee to provide the highest quality service. To achieve this, each person must continually evaluate and improve their performances. It is our greatest goal to maintain complete customer satisfaction.
Constant Innovation and Entrepreneurial Vitality
Innovation is the most important element of our business. Without innovativeness, we will lose our competitiveness and ability to survive in the industry. VIS does not pursue only technical innovations, but also emphasizes innovation in all aspects of its operation, from planning, marketing, to management. At the same time, it is also important to accumulate patents and IPs.
We must also ensure that VIS remains a robust and energetic company, and be proactive and efficient in response to the rapidly changing industry.
Creating a Dynamic and Enjoyable Working Environment
For most VIS colleagues, having a challenging and enjoyable working environment, where one can learn new skills, is more important than monetary reward. We must create and maintain such an environment in order to retain talented people who share common goals and interests.
Establishing an Open Management Style
We want to establish an open management style by creating a communicative working environment.
With an open management style, every employee, regardless of position, is willing to accept objective criticism from others and make improvements. At the same time, such an environment allows all opinions to be voiced before a final decision is made. And once a decision is made, each member then works together to achieve the set goal.
Safeguarding Shareholder Interests and Employee Benefits, and Giving back to Society
Shareholders and employees are both important members of our organization. Our goal is to help shareholders get above-average return on their investment and offer employees above-average compensations and benefits in the industry.
Also, a company owes its growth to the society and industrial environment, and that is why VIS must continue to give back to our society and fulfill the role of a good corporate citizen.
