Comprehensive Communication Channels

Open and Comprehensive Communication Channels, Harmonious Labor Relations
We value two-way communication and are committed to keeping open and transparent communication channels between the management level, subordinates, and peers. The comprehensive communication channels provided by our company are detailed in the following chart:
Labor-management meetings
We respect the legal rights of our employees and have never obstructed or interfered with employees' freedom of association. We value the negotiation mechanism for employer and employees, and follow legal regulations to hold labor-management meetings at least once every 3 months to accomplish mutual agreement on major labor conditions issues. The labor-management meeting is organized by equal number of representatives from both the labor and the employer. Labor representatives are elected directly by employees. The relationship between our management level and employees has been harmonious over the years, thanks to our transparent and effective communication channels.
With M+ Messenger, employees can communicate with each other anytime, everywhere
TWM developed an instant messenger system (which is called M+ system), and employees can communicate work-related information with other employees who are located in different offices or out of office for business trips in a convenient and more cost-effective way.
Through corporate intranet, internal commucation is more effective
All information is posted on the Company’s intranet, where employees can view the company’s press releases, product information and management measures.
Managerial communication meetings, foster mutual communication between management level and employees
Managerial meetings are held every three months to reinforce the Company’s vision and convey recent critical developments to all employees.
We host two-way communication meetings quarterly to maintain the unobstructed flow of information between managers and top executives. At the meeting, company financial performances and operational decisions are reported and managers can raise business-related questions such as risks issues other concerns that have arised during the meeting, and have them answered directly by high-level executives. Moreover, internal communication meetings are held by each business unit to convey corporate vision and information to all employees.
