ChipMOS Training System
Professional Talent Cultivation
ChipMOS implements the BU Curriculum Blueprint and prioritizes talent development through the Education and Training Committee, led by senior executives. This underscores our senior management’s emphasis and commitment to talent development. The BU Curriculum fosters a common language and systematic learning, cultivating key skills and nurturing exceptional talents within the organization. In 2022, a total of 281 sessions of professional courses were offered, accounting for 53% of internal training programs. This initiative successfully trained 3,334 employees as BU professional engineers.
In 2022, as part of our intelligent manufacturing and digital transformation initiatives, we collaborated with the Industrial Bureau's Smart Electronics Academy and Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology to launch a specialized training program on AI-enabled smart manufacturing applications. The training curriculum covered fundamental programming logic to advanced topics like deep learning. Additionally, participants had the opportunity to engage in hands-on experiences at the university's smart robotics laboratory, allowing them to apply their knowledge in practical settings. In the very first industry-government-academia collaboration, ChipMOS successfully nurtured 42 professional talents. Moving forward, we shall commit to investing in AI-related projects to accelerate the implementation of intelligent operations in our fabs and achieve our goals in smart manufacturing and AI-driven development.
Diverse Learning Channels and Self-learning Resources
In response to the digital age and changes in learning models, ChipMOS is continually promoting digital learning. Employees can share knowledge through internal learning groups, and utilize online learning platforms for self-directed learning at any time. This approach facilitates the dissemination of learning throughout the organization. In the annual plan for 2022, 60% of the courses were designed to incorporate self-guided learning, including a variety of formats such as online classes, e-newsletters, videos, podcasts, application guides, and project tasks. This allows employees to learn anytime and apply what they have learned to their work, helping to achieve the organization's goals. With such diverse learning experiences, our employees scored their overall learning satisfaction 4.4. We published a total of 66 e-newsletters, with an average perusal rate at 89% in 2022. In 2022, the ratio of our digital courses to physical courses was approximately 6:4. A total of 232 online courses were offered, 30% of which were newly recorded. Overall, online resources increased by 9% compared to 2021.
