Yuanta employees and the large majority of the Company’s suppliers do not work in environments that are high-risk or associated with occupational diseases. Security guards in the Company’s bank locations, however, face a certain danger due to the possibility of a robbery, and for this reason we undertake drills and simulate robbery response procedures to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, and security guards should such an event occur.
In accordance with the health and safety laws set in place by the government, and out of consideration for the well-being of our employees, Yuanta has a set goal of zero occupational accidents, and has laid out emergency response plans and reporting procedures for all manner of potential situations. Both new and existing employees receive health and safety training on a yearly basis. Furthermore, to help protect the physical health of our employees, raise employees' general knowledge of medicine, and protect against the risk of illness, the Group provides employees with group health insurance, medical checks, health consultations, and health-related seminars. For these seminars, we regularly invite doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to give talks not only on disease prevention, but also on personal health management, health protection, family relationships, and other issues regarding physical and psychological health from an employee perspective.
To maintain a safe and healthy workplace, the Group has set out the "Key Points on Preventing, Reporting, and Punishing Sexual Harassment," and strictly prohibits any sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination or violence, and threatening behaviors. It is our goal to create and maintain a gender-equal workplace, and for that reason we hold periodic events and training around sexual harassment awareness and prevention every year.
The Group also offers menstrual leave and maternity leave for its female employees, and paternity leave for its male employees. Both genders are also eligible for family care leave and the opportunity to apply for unpaid parental leave with their job held for their return.
Yuanta not only cares for the health and safety of its own employees, but also that of its suppliers’ employees. The Company pays close attention to its facilities and equipment, and our building management system undergoes routine safety inspections and updates, in order to fulfill our workplace safety management policy.
