Foreign employees are given assistance with work visa applications, resident IDs and admission to National Health Insurance (NHI). The company also helps employees to acquire admission to the additional group insurance, jointly established by the company and the employee welfare committee, which supplements basic business insurance. The company helps employees with travel arrangements to Taiwan, relevant law compliance, and living assistance and accommodations when they first arrive. OUCC cares for their foreign employees at all times and reaches out in time of need.
Since OUCC is a major petrochemical manufacturer, on-site production work has physical requirement, and because of the continuous operation of the plant, the proportion of male employees (including indirect and direct employees) is higher than that of female employees. However, OUCC values and cares as always for the needs of female employees equally, and does not differentiate genders in terms of compensation and benefits, career and life development, and upholds the principle of equal rights for men and women in performance evaluation and promotion.
