Realteker joyfully supports charities’ Program

Social inclusion is the consensus of everyone at Realtek. We have long supported and taken part in charity activities over the years. In 2008, Realtek launched the ‘Realteker joyfully support charities” program to actively develop charity initiatives for Realtek employees to take part in. We hope that our charity initiatives and participation will lead to sustainable creativity and action. Social care is about being human. It is channeled through activities organized by a company and is an important part of Realtek’s engagement with social inclusion. The hope that every concept and every action will ultimately come together and leave a long-lasting impression on the nation and society is the philosophy that guides Realtek.

The ‘Realteker joyfully support charities’ social inclusion program covers six categories: social care education for employees, disadvantaged groups, emergency assistance, academic research, schoolchildren development, and individual cases. They encompass a wide variety of topics and care recipients. The ‘Realtek CSR Planning Center’ was established in 2010 for more systematic planning on the allocation of resources. More resources and energy were also invested to expand our social care efforts and fulfill our CSR. In addition to providing care resources to external recipients, we also design internal activities that reinforce the importance of social care topics to employees. At the same time, we also learn from the rest of society in order to enhance Realtek’s strategic planning on CSR. The benefits will then be translated into greater engagement and more effective action by Realtek.

 

 Education grants

Education is one of the most important items to Realtek on the topic of social inclusion. Education is a long-term effort that has a very significant impact on the sustainable development of individual students and the nation as a whole. The development of education has therefore long been a key area of interest for Realtek. For indigenous education in Hsinchu County, Realtek provided learning awards and assistance to four schools in the indigenous region. We hope this will enrich the educational resources for children at indigenous elementary schools, and help them concentrate on learning and growth. We also hope that the children can give back to their community one day so that we can all work together to promote mutual support and caring in society and throughout the nation.

Investments in educational development projects in 2019 included:

  1. Awards for rural elementary schools in Hsinchu (Yu Feng Elementary School, Hsiu Luan Elementary School, Xin Guang Elementary School, Shih Lei Elementary School) for the 2019 academic year
