onsemi has long remained committed to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), recognizing that our company is at its strongest when it effectively draws upon the wide variety of experiences, knowledge, culture and backgrounds from all employees. We celebrate differences, strive for equity and promote an inclusive environment by valuing the contributions of our employees. DEI helps us continue to encourage the creativity and innovation necessary for us to maintain a competitive advantage in the global marketplace.
We believe our company's vision, values and culture afford opportunities for everyone to make a difference in building a successful global business. We are constantly striving towards a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace, which benefits our company and enables us to more successfully meet the needs of all our stakeholders – customers, suppliers, employees, and shareholders worldwide.
To have a culture where DIVERSITY, EQUITY and INCLUSION are embedded in everything we do
We are building a DEI culture across the organization through focused efforts across workforce diversity, workflow equity, workplace inclusion and community partnerships
onsemi works daily on keeping a best in class and diverse talent pipeline. We understand this means more than just attracting a diverse workforce but also developing all of our employees. We train leadership on how to best mitigate unconscious bias during the interview and hiring process as well as providing general unconscious bias and DEI learning for all of our employees around the globe.
We participate in multiple diversity conferences and career fairs across North America throughout the year including (but not limited to) National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), and IEEE Women in Engineering (WiE). We also partner with organizations in Asia including Women in Science, Engineering and Technology (WISET) foundation.
We engage with multiple organizations to attract a more diverse workforce. This includes (but not limited to) working with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to provide scholarships and internship opportunities. SkillBridge, a DoD program for servicemembers transiting into the civilian workforce. Year Up, a program to ensure equitable access for young adults taking a nontraditional higher education path to gain work experience.
Succession management aligns with the company’s business priorities and future growth strategy. It is an integrated process designed to identify and develop employees for growth into key roles within the company.
onsemi understands that it is imperative to infuse equity as the integrator for seeking a diverse workforce and inclusive workplace. Equity is not equality. Instead, it is creating access for all to have the same opportunities to develop skills consistent with our business objectives and core values. This is made possible by tailoring processes and practices to employee needs and redesigning talent systems.
At onsemi, our employee resource groups (ERGs) help facilitate equity in the workplace. They evolve through organic formation and are business-facing groups that support our recruitment, retention and advancement objectives.
WE, established in 2014, focuses on empowering and supporting women to succeed through professional development in business, strategic and financial acumen.
Cultivate, established in 2018, works to unite a group of diverse generations who are committed to engaging the workforce and enhancing our collaborative company culture. This group is devoted to understanding all generations in the workplace and connecting the company with the evolving employee community.
BEN, established in 2019, fosters an environment that is conducive to the recruitment, retention and career advancement of Black employees. This group is committed to promoting the company brand and emerging market penetration in the Black community.
Continua, established in 2020, works to cultivate an inclusive workplace where all employees are free and encouraged to be themselves. This group advocates for those who are - and who support - LGBTQ+ people in our company, in our families and in our communities.
VME, established in 2020, helps recruit veterans and military members, provides transitional assistance into the civilian workforce, develops and retains these employees and increases networking through community outreach.
STEM UP, established in 2015, strives to develop and retain a diverse workforce, which will positively impact our company's innovation and performance. This group’s programs are focused on retaining employees and developing new talent in the local area for the underrepresented population.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at onsemi is more than a single-region effort. As a global employer with approximately 35,000 individuals in roles from corporate designers and support functions to manufacturing line workers in North America, Europe, Asia, and Japan, it is vital that we engage and address the local needs for all our employees.
The onsemi Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program enables strong alliances with external organizations to better understand the needs of our customers, suppliers and community members. We also partner with leading organizations to expand our positive impact and advance DEI initiatives within our local communities.
We are a founding member of DEI Board.org, a membership organization where heads of diversity, equity, and inclusion programs at the world’s biggest companies get answers to their toughest questions.
We are members of the council that provides guidance on strategy, prioritization, scope, and desired outcomes to ensure faster time-to-better business results for the semiconductor industry.
As a sponsor, we use the GDEIB as a resource for research and education to improve our diversity, equity, and inclusion practices around the globe.
