Succession Planning of Director and Important Managers and Implementation:
I. When the Company convenes board meetings or strategy and operation meetings, it always invites Directors as well as senior executives such as the President, general managers of business groups, and heads of departments of the head office to attend the meetings. The Company plans to develop decision-making skills through senior executives' participation in board meetings and related meetings. II. The Company regularly holds two-day training courses for senior executives (managers ranked department directors and above) every year. Course topics include system conceptualization, performance management and talent management, high-performance leadership, organizational changes, and sustainable development. We share external industry knowledge, new technology knowledge and paradigms of benchmark companies to learn about the latest management ideas and current trends. Senior executives also share their leadership experience for creating the corporate culture and management based on their years of experience. III. The Human Resources Department has created a talent development mechanism that focuses on training resources for training and development. It includes management courses, new technology enhancements, and job rotations. The President invites external professional training institutions to provide all company executives with enhanced management knowledge at least once a year. We consolidate the targets of the Company and departments to strengthen the advantages of their current roles.
