The costs of replacing key talent – from recruiting, interviewing, hiring, training and the loss of institutional knowledge – are considerable. For this reason, TI is focused on hiring the best engineers and innovators and keeping robust, competitive benefits and programs in place to retain them. While a long-term employee is not uncommon at our company (47 percent have been with TI for 10 or more years), it is increasingly unique in the semiconductor industry.

About TI's culture

The following tenets strengthen TI's ability to attract and retain employees who will thrive within our culture and contribute to business success:
  • Smart collaboration. One great mind is good. A team of great minds is even better. We may work individually, but we achieve as a global team. Those who share knowledge openly and invite input from others excel here.
  • Open opportunity. Individual opportunity exists at TI. Forward movement requires ownership, perseverance and creativity. If you work for opportunity, it will in turn work for you.
  • Thoughtful innovation. Innovation and creativity are what keep us moving forward. Choosing ideas thoughtfully keeps our business secure. We are the brains behind the technology and products that impact the world.
  • Highest standards. How we do things is just as important as what we do. Our founders encouraged employees to approach business with respect, dignity, kindness and courtesy in all relationships. This ethical approach helps provide sustainable growth and stability to our shareholders, customers and employees. Simply put, it's just good business.
  • Winning determination. We share a passion for discovery and a will to win. There is a quiet determination that motivates us to solve complex problems and create revolutionary technologies that change people's lives. We have a mental toughness that drives us to remain competitive globally and win – time and time again.
