We promise to build an organizational culture of diversity, equality, inclusion, and a sense of belonging through the two main pillars of talent cultivation and healthy and safe workplace. In terms of talent cultivation, we achieve the goal of diversified development and inclusive growth through a talent declaration, leadership training, and a talent development mechanism.

Diversity and equality
Primax Group operates a headquarters in Taiwan and several subsidiaries and production sites in China. We believe that it is our responsibility to care for local residents, which is why we try to employ local residents where possible, and in doing so contribute to the development of the local economy.
The Group also strives to expand the diversity of its workforce; apart from locals, Primax recruits foreign employees and engages actively in international exchange so that the company and employees may get in touch with different cultures and customs, and develop perspectives and thinking in different directions. Out of care for society, the Company recruits a minimum number of people with disabilities each year, providing them an opportunity to put their skills to work and make a living on their own. Additionally, Primax Taipei was awarded the "Excellent Enterprise for Hiring Persons with Disabilities" by the Taipei City government, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to creating an inclusive and friendly workplace.
In 2022 , Primax Group hired 16 foreign workers and 125 people with disabilities. Although the Group did not employ enough people with disabilities to fulfill the minimum quota, the organization paid monthly compensation for the shortfall as required by law, and continues to search for people with disabilities of suitable skills that can be hired to ensure compliance with local regulations. The following shows age and gender distribution of employees at Primax Group:
