Strategic Formula:

Employees are Our Greatest Strength

At Microchip, these are not just words; they are a part of our very being. It is reflected in the Guiding Values used to define our company culture and the day-to-day decisions we make as a company around the world—every employee shares in the success of the company while our benefits packages and policies are designed with employee wellness and safety in mind. During tough economic times, Microchip has a demonstrated history of taking steps to retain every employee, if possible, while others around us were significantly reducing their headcounts. It is even reflected in our organizational charts—every one of them has been flipped up-side down. As Steve Sanghi, CEO, says "I do this to show that I work for our employees." Microchip believes it is at the employee level where work gets done and decisions are made. Combine that belief with a unique business strategy that has employee empowerment as one of its key elements and it only makes sense that employees are recognized as our greatest strength.

As a Microchip employee, you are part of a winning team. Microchip is one of the top performing semiconductor companies in the world as a result of thousands of customers around the world who recognize our well-executed strategies, strong technology and product portfolio, unique company culture, and professional ethics.

You are also part of a company that recognizes that it has short- and long-term fiscal and social responsibilities. Microchip and our employees around the world continue to demonstrate our passion for supporting each other, the communities in which they live and work, the universities and schools that provide for the future and those that are less fortunate through support of a wide range of charitable organizations.


Employee Empowerment


Microchip is unlike many corporations throughout the world. Organizational charts are flipped upside down. The management staff works for employees and the overall focus is on serving customers- both internal and external. Microchip believes that key managements contributions are made when obstacles are removed from employees’ paths.

Beyond the strengths of Microchip’s technological advancements are its never-ending commitment to employee development and empowerment, and its pledge to foster a positive employment environment. At Microchip, individual empowerment is not just a “buzz-word”--- it is a way of life.

Guiding Values Survey Results

Microchip’s positive, progressive company culture is not accidental. It was consciously designed by the company’s founders to enable all employees to understand and practice a common set of Guiding Values. Employees are encouraged to work in unison to achieve company goals of quality, profits, and technological advancement.

Microchip’s Guiding Values Survey is completed annually by all employees world-wide.

Microchip has maintained excellent scores over the last 20 years.

As a Microchip employee, you are part of a team with a unique business strategy which has employee empowerment as one of its key elements. We believe each employee’s passion is fueled when the company’s profit and ownership are shared. It only makes sense the compensation package for every employee includes a bonus plan based upon Microchip’s financial success. In addition, each and every employee becomes an owner of Microchip through our stock programs. We also offer programs around the world to recognize and reward employees for their innovative contributions. At Microchip, every employee gains and is passionate about the company’s short- and long-term success.

At Microchip, we believe employee passion and productivity is at its best when you and your family are healthy and happy. Around the world, our benefit packages offer this security to each and every employee.

Microchip gives back to communities:

· Company charity drives

· Employee contributions

· United Way

· Building future leaders through our contributions to FIRST

At Microchip Technology, giving back to our communities is an integral part of our culture. Microchip gives back to communities via company charity drives, employee contributions to the United Way, matching qualified employee donations, the Microchip Academic Program, sponsorship of FIRST organizations, and associations with various organizations.

With support to the United Way, our employees make vital impacts to those in need throughout our communities by assisting nearly 500 results driven United Way funded programs.

Through our contributions to FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), we are helping to build our future leaders. FIRST is a multinational non-profit organization, which aspires to transform culture by making science, math, engineering, and technology fun for kids.

The Academic Program demonstrates Microchip's on-going commitment to education by offering unique benefits and resources for educators, researchers, and students worldwide. Microchip partners with academia to increase the knowledgebase in embedded applications and promote that knowledge with future engineers and innovations.

The Microchip Technology Charitable Foundation supports many agencies of need by initiating company charity drives. Microchip provides assistance to many organizations in the form of cash donations every year and reserves some of its charitable budget to match employee donations to qualified charities.
