Corporate Sustainability Rreport

Extensively Recruit Outstanding Manpower

Overview of Manpower

    YOKE respects and ensures equality at work. Recruitment and labor conditions, promotion and transfer, training, and benefits of all employees do not differ because of ethnicity, class, belief, religion, party, place of birth, gender, sexual orientation, age, marriage, look, and physical or mental disability. Applicable labor laws and regulations are followed. People who are not willing will not be mandated or forced to engage in any labor-based activity by means of violence, coercion, or detention, or in other illegal ways. Meanwhile, child labor under the age of 16 will absolutely not be hired. A strict interview procedure is required in order to verify an interviewee’s status.

YOKE increased the night shift in 2017 and hence the number of full-time workers as of the end of 2017 reached 396, an increase of 58 people from 2016. Among them were 148 female workers (37.37%), which is not significantly different from the ratio in the preceding 5 years. As far as age is concerned, 249 (62.88%) were 31 to 50 years old in 2017, a slight decrease of 3.69% from 2016. For the age group of 51 years and older, an additional employee was hired, without much difference. By category, gender analysis of the 2017 in-service staff revealed that men accounted for a higher ratio among direct manpower (76.05%) due to the fact that more strenuous tasks occur in the workplace of the factory (76.05%). In terms of specialists, on the other hand, women accounted for 70.33%. Female grassroots supervisors also accounted for 45.28%. In addition, YOKE added the second plant on the 3rd Gongyequ Road of the Taichung Industrial Park in 2017 and moved assembly lines in the existing plant to the second plant while at the same time adding new assembly lines. As of the end of 2017, there were a total of 38 full-time employees; among them, 28 were men.

YOKE did not have contractors or hourly-rate staff as of the end of 2017; all employees were full-time staff. In addition, the number of external staff has remained steady since 2012, including one housekeeper (female), two security guards (male), and one gardener (male); they are responsible for the cleaning and gardens inside and outside the company and security at the gate. During high seasons, 1 to 3 part-time workers (students) will be added to meet departmental demand and to help with departmental administrative tasks; they work for around 2 to 3 months.

Overview of New Hires and Resignations

In 2017, there were 202 newly hired employees; among them, 67 were women (33.17%), which is about the same as the ratio of women already in service, and 108 were 30 years old or younger (53.47%), which is higher than the ratio of those already in service, mainly because of the increase of 45 people in direct manpower from the previous year. As a result, the age group of these new hires was younger than before. In 2017, a total of 143 people resigned; among them were 47 women (32.87%), a ratio slightly below that of those still in service, and 84 between 31 and 50 years old (58.74%), a ratio slightly below that of those still in service and belonging to the same age group.

To meet the needs of the newly established second plant, the new hire rate increased by 6.33% in 2017 from 2016. As far as management of new hires is concerned, YOKE emphasized daily care provided by counselors and educational training in 2017; it was hoped that the mechanism would help understand what new hires have to say and their expectations. Analysis of the resignation rate in 2017 revealed a decrease of 6.33% from 2016. The counselor assistance system was further reinforced in 2018. The new hire and counselor rating mechanism is being promoted in order to understand the outcome of interactions between the counselor and new hires.
