2012 performance

Results | Looking ahead

In 2012, we enhanced U.S. work-life offerings through the following:
  • Launched nine new online parent discussion groups on our intranet for employees who are expectant mothers; nursing mothers; dads; and parents of multiples, infants, toddlers, early school children, pre-teens and teens.
  • Conducted an employee survey with new mothers. As a result of their feedback, we enhanced our online reservation system for all lactation rooms, installed upgraded keypad-coded security locks on all doors, and added educational parenting reading materials.
  • Offered new elder care workshops, including "Options and Resources for Older Relatives" and "Overview of Legal Issues for Older Relatives," to address the growing challenges employees are facing with caring for older relatives.
We also continued to receive accolades for our work-life programs:
  • Working Mother Magazine named TI to its "100 Best Companies" list for the 17th consecutive year.
  • The National Association of Female Executives named TI to the "NAFE Top 50 Companies for Executive Women" list for the seventh consecutive year.
  • We received the inaugural Work-Life Seal of Distinction from WorldatWork's Alliance for Work-Life Progress.
  • Fortune Magazine listed TI on its "World's Most Admired Companies" list; we ranked second in the semiconductor category.


In 2012, our U.S. work-life programs included the following results:

  • We expanded our Intermissions program to seven U.S. locations, and attracted 2,000 participants. Employees enjoyed live music, healthy food demonstrations and samples, massages, and vendor fairs with information on managing stress and resiliency.
  • Our concierges filled 11,450 requests (a 24 percent increase from 2011); 21 percent of U.S. employees used the service. MyConcierge estimates that these services saved employees more than 34,350 hours in 2012.
  • We gave approximately 18,680 employees (55 percent of the workforce) the tools for remote connectivity to telecommute.
  • We provided adoption benefits to nine employees, including reimbursement of up to $4,000 and two weeks of paid leave. Another 466 employees used our paid maternity leave and 346 used paid paternity leaves.
  • Our LifeWorks resource and referral service served 2,156 employees, offering consultations, research requests, online searches, training and educational materials on a range of work-life issues.
  • Our company-sponsored summer, winter and spring break camps attracted 635 children. On parent surveys, the camps received high marks, with 98 percent of respondents indicating that the camp met or exceeded their expectations.
  • Child care facilities at our on-site fitness centers logged 1,249 visits.
  • We awarded $4,000 college scholarships to 24 children of active, retired or deceased employees through the Jerry R. Junkins Memorial National Merit Scholarships program.

Looking ahead

In 2013, we will continue our focus on increasing awareness of work-life initiatives and flexible work options, and further employee use of these benefits and tools.
