Our human rights-related achievements for the year included:
- Becoming a member of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (EICC), which offers tools to assess human rights management within our supply chain.
- Meeting with worldwide factory managers to discuss the company's enhanced social responsibility and human rights expectations and standards as a result of our EICC membership. We also reviewed and addressed customer corporate social responsibility audits and experiences.
- Scoring 85 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's U.S. Corporate Equality Index for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality. This is the fifth consecutive year we have been included.
- Expanding related training to more employees. For example, we delivered workplace harassment training to more than twice as many employees (4,400) globally than two years ago, when 1,800 participated. Employee participation in our anti-bribery class more than tripled during this same timeframe.
- Continuing to comply with the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, which requires companies to report efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains.
- Providing more than 97,000 training modules related to human rights, ethics and compliance to employees.
In 2012, we were not aware of any incident at our sites globally related to:
- Human rights abuses involving indigenous people.
- Forced or compulsory labor, or child labor.
- Violations of freedom of association and collective bargaining.
In 2013, we plan to complete the adoption of the EICC's code of conduct into our business practices. Additionally, we will update our business practices statement to reinforce our commitment to continuous improvement in our corporate citizenship efforts.
Additionally, we will continue evaluating human rights policies, reporting processes and training needs at company sites worldwide. During these visits, we will conduct roundtables and town hall meetings with employees to discuss human rights issues.
