Wherever we are in the world, Acer is committed to following labor laws when hiring staff. We insist on equal opportunity employment, hiring through an open selection process that does not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, skin color, age, religious belief, nationality, ancestry, physical/mental disability, medical status, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, military service, or political beliefs. With our focus on hiring the best people for the job, we have been able to assemble a diverse array of outstanding talent around the world. We also provide competitive pay and benefits, humane management, and a robust path for promotion and career development.
In 2019, the global average percentage of staff who were new hires (a total of 1,159 people) was 15.71%. The average turnover rate in 2019 was 18.7%, a slight increase from 2018. This is attributable to the turnover rate calculation being adjusted to include all full-time, contracted, and temporary staff, and the level of contract expiration for the latter two categories in short-term locations in 2019 was high, so as a result, we saw an increase in turnover rate.
