Employee Well Being

Our success depends on the talent and commitment of our employees. It is important to us to nurture, grow and involve our employees in all activities.  In return for their commitment and contributions, we strive to provide employees with a safe working environment, a health conscious organization, jobs that are meaningful, career paths that are far sighted and total compensation that reflects individual and business success. 

The cornerstones of our efforts to promote employee well being are:

        • Employee Involvement
        • Safety and Prevention
        • Compliance
        • Balance

Employee Involvement: NeoPhotonics maintains open channels of communication to share and explore all issues surrounding the work environment, to seek, listen and respond to employee views. We seek to maintain an appropriate balance between all interests: those of our customers, our employees and our shareholders.

Safety and Prevention:  NeoPhotonics takes a proactive approach to ensuring that the work environment is as safe as possible. These activities include purchasing the appropriate safety equipment, designing work instructions with safety in mind, providing all employees with safety training and periodically testing our safety procedures with drills and audits Whether in relation to health problems, workplace safety, illnesses, or stress, prevention is a primary goal of employee wellbeing activities. An accident or illness avoided is much to be preferred over treatment. Prevention programs include providing wellness information and training to employees, lessons on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, stress reduction training, specialized workplace equipment and accident prevention plans.

Compliance: In both the United States and China, NeoPhotonics strives to comply with all government rules and regulations and also works with government agencies to support solutions which enhance employee well being. Similarly we expect our employees to comply with all company safety procedures and we empower our employees to take responsibility for their own well being and that of their fellow employees.

Balance: In the business environment of today’s competitive world, both employees and companies face increasing pressure to improve their performance.  Employees seek jobs that offer financial security and provide the opportunity for career development and advancement. But along with these demanding jobs, employees also want time to pursue personal interests and enjoy time outside of the workplace. NeoPhotonics looks to create a supportive, flexible work environment which, provides benefits and services that allow employees to enjoy their life away from work.
