ETHICS, HUMAN RESOURCES, AND PHILANTHROPY
Maintaining High Ethical Standards
Lenovo is committed to the highest standards of integrity and responsibility when working with all stakeholders. Lenovo provides guidance to its employees on a wide range of ethical issues, such as reporting unlawful or inappropriate conduct, respecting and protecting intellectual property, trading in securities and complying with governmental relations through its Employee Code of Conduct.
Employees are required to report any evidence of fraud, unethical business conduct, violation of laws, danger to health or safety or any other violation of corporate policies. Lenovo respects the intellectual property rights of other companies and individuals, having helped lead the way in fighting piracy in China. In mid-2005, the company began collaborating with Microsoft on an initiative to promote the use and benefits of validly licensed Microsoft® software products through new and innovative joint sales, marketing and training programs in China. Lenovo was the first PC supplier to take this important step, and this action compelled other market leaders in China to follow suit.

Focus on Employee Welfare

We also focus on implementing and improving processes and controls for preventing work-related accidents, injuries and illnesses.
Lenovo's corporate policy, "Responsibility for Employee Health and Safety", focuses on creating and maintaining a workplace that provides for the health and safety of all employees and reinforces the importance Lenovo places on health and safety at every location in which we do business.
Lenovo offers competitive compensation packages and abides by applicable minimum wage requirements in every country and region where we operate. Consequently, Lenovo is recognized as a leading employer around the world.
In 2007, Lenovo obtained OHSAS 18001 certification from Bureau Veritas at all global manufacturing locations. The OHS team conducts rigorous corporate and internal audits to ensure compliance and continually drive processes and program improvements.

Each of Lenovo's actions to give back to society cannot be separated from its employees' participation. We define our corporate responsibility by following the “making the world better because of Lenovo” principle. Lenovo is committed to raising employee awareness on all aspects of responsibility to encourage values that persuade our staff to give their time to volunteer services.

Lenovo annually commits up to 1 percent of its pretax income to global social investment programs and initiatives. Therefore, the size of our programs continues to grow as the company grows. The more success we achieve, the more we are able to share that success with those around us. Click here to take a look at the programs supported by Lenovo.
