Diversity and Inclusion
We emphasize an "equal opportunity" workplace policy. We are committed to maintaining a non-discriminatory work environment by respecting and accommodating the diverse cultures of our team members. We provide equal employment opportunities to employees and job applicants without discrimination based on race, color, genetic heritage, or other characteristics protected by local laws. We remind supervisors to use the analytical data of the candidate's skill level and personality assessment as the basis for recruitment, and to recruit without bias based on their gender, age, race, etc. In addition, we promote the importance of multiculturalism to our global workforce through classroom and online training, emphasizing that Acer provides a work environment free of discrimination (including race and color). We also review demographics of our employees and leadership teams, such as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) data, to inform recruitment and training planning.
