TI Founder Cecil Green underscored TI's people philosophy when he said, "Getting ahead depends not on working people, but on working with people."
In that spirit, TI leadership pays close attention to the safety, health and well-being of our valued workforce globally. We believe that a collaborative and inclusive work environment, complemented with targeted training and development, inspires innovation. This approach is integral to our long-term success as a company and applies to employees of all ethnicities, ages, genders, religious beliefs and sexual orientation.
Through the hard work and collaborative efforts of TIers around the world, the company grew significantly in 2010. Given the demanding work schedules, we continue to maintain our work-life benefits to help employees balance the demands of work and life at home. We believe that providing flexibility in how work gets done is important to remaining competitive. We also continued efforts to educate and align current as well as new employees on TI values and expectations.
TI leaders take seriously their responsibilities as stewards of the TI culture, workplace and brand. Our executives serve as role models among employees and in the communities where we operate. TI leaders not only set the direction and pace for company activities, but also the well-being and success of our workforce. They are accountable for providing employees with targeted development opportunities and helping build the next generation of leaders.
TI is recognized internationally for its commitment to maintaining a safe, respectful and inclusive work environment. We receive numerous awards related to this commitment. In 2010, TI was named among the “Global Most Admired Companies” (ranking second in the industry) by Fortune Magazine and was included on Working Mother Magazine’s “100 Best Companies for Working Mothers” for the 15th consecutive year. This milestone distinction also earned TI a spot in Working Mother’s Hall of Fame. In addition, we again received a 100 percent score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, which listed TI among the “Best Places to Work” for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality.
