TI employees and retirees continued giving generously of their time and expertise to enrich the communities in which they live. Some highlights for the year include:
For our legacy of volunteerism, TI was recognized by a variety of civic organizations during the year. For example:
- Expanding the TI Founders Community Service Awards program to India and secured 74 nominations from U.S. and India employees.
- Training 159 community ambassadors in the U.S. to help them be more effective board members.
- Partnering with the Volunteer Center of North Texas to host approximately 400 Dallas employees and 35 agencies at our third annual volunteer fair.
- Conducting an employee survey to identify relevant volunteer opportunities.
- Creating a collaboration room on Infolink, our employee intranet, to promote volunteer opportunities and local arts and culture events. Employees can share their volunteering stories and photos as well.
- Organizing 10 volunteer activities for the TI Alumni Association’s (TIAA) community involvement team.
- Encouraging new employees from the acquisition of National Semiconductor to remain involved in their communities; exceeding goals for end-of-year employee giving and volunteer programs (results not included in TI totals; will integrate in 2012).
