More than 80 years ago, TI’s founders decided that the company’s worth was based not only on the strength of its balance sheet, but also on its contributions to society. We believe strong companies build strong communities and strong communities build strong companies.
This philosophy is still evident today in our ongoing efforts to improve education; the environment; and the quality of life for our employees, neighbors and communities. TI and the TI Foundation make investments to benefit the locations where we operate, as do many of our employees (including company leaders), who also volunteer their time.
Employee participation in and corporate support of community programs are periodically reviewed by TI’s citizenship strategy team, community involvement teams, employee diversity initiative members and executive leaders, as well as the TI board of directors’ Governance and Stockholder Relations Committee.
To ensure ethical and responsible business conduct, we follow the standards established in our code of business conduct and adhere to our “Values and Ethics” booklet. TI also follows established giving guidelines for investments in local organizations.
We receive awards and recognition for our positive impact in the communities where we operate.
