HUMAN RESOURCES:CPC helps people build their future using the corporate knowledge legacy as the foundation

CPC aims to fully develop the potential of every one of its current (as of end-December 2018) 15,704 employees through long-term training and career guidance, while at the same time making both incentives and standard benefits more attractive. Managerial talent is selectively assessed with the aim of ensuring continuity in both corporate development and leadership through participation by talented people of outstanding ability.

In terms of human resource utilization, CPC has in recent years engaged in organizational and process re-engineering and has also formulated and carried out a policy whereby selected employees are rotated through different jobs, businesses and departments in order to use its human capital to best advantage. It has also recruited a cohort of young professionals to both inject new blood into the corporate body and to provide a smooth transfer of technical and operational know-how, as well as commercial and competitive skills, in preparation for a wave of retirements.

CPC is cultivating individual expertise so as to optimize corporate capability​

As the number of people leaving, or more often retiring from, CPC in recent years has tended to rise, new employees have needed comprehensive guidance and training to ensure a smooth transfer of functionality. On-the-job training is now combined with formal skills development courses; and senior employees are designated as mentors to help their new colleagues adapt to their new workplace and responsibilities. These new employees are typically rotated each year to allow them to gain experience in a wide range of jobs and develop their talent at every level. Seniority requirements in consideration for promotion have been shortened for outstanding managers, lowering the age distribution in the upper management echelons and thus helping to motivate those with ambition. Each department reviews its professional-skill shortfalls at the beginning of the year and formulates a corresponding training plan in which outstanding performers are recruited as instructors, tasked with passing on their operational knowledge and experience. Some departments also make arrangements for on-site or international learning experiences for their younger employees, lasting from several weeks up to a year depending on departmental needs. Online learning is also provided to eliminate time and location limitations: training courses are digitized and uploaded to CPC's e-Academy and knowledge archives, allowing the knowledge and expertise of senior and former employees accumulated over many decades to be preserved and passed on. With digital learning, new employees can gain the professional knowledge and workplace information they need without ever having to step into a classroom.

A CPC human resources training center has been established in Chiayi. This facility not only serves as an incubator for internal talent, but is also tasked with building a talent pool for fulfilling the government’s New Southbound Policy -  by providing people from Taiwanese companies with background and on-the-job training in the energy and petrochemical fields.

CPC's wide range of employee benefits is important to maintaining morale

In terms of employee incentives and benefits, it is CPC policy to award an annual bonus on the basis of overall corporate performance as well as the scale of contribution and performance on the job of the individual employee. All employees are entered in the national health insurance, civil service insurance, labor insurance, group life insurance and accident insurance programs. Consolation and compassionate payments are made in cases of job-related injuries, disability or death; and employee welfare committees organize a variety of welfare, hobby and entertainment activities.

A number of CPC’s business divisions also operate clinics, restaurants, libraries, general stores and other welfare amenities along with sports facilities such as swimming pools, ball parks and gyms at or near the workplace. There are scholarships for employees’ children; educational loans for dependents attending college and university; medical subsidies for employees and their family members; wedding, funeral and retirement subsidies; and interest-free emergency loans. The company also chips in to support the activities of employee interest groups dedicated to baseball, bridge, mountain climbing, swimming, painting, film appreciation and other leisure pursuits, in order to provide physical and mental relaxation and boost their morale and sense of well-being at work.
