Fueling the Innovation Economy
Intel is the world’s largest semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue. Our products include microprocessors, chipsets, motherboards, and other semiconductor products that are building blocks for computers, servers, consumer electronics, and other networking and communications products. Our current product portfolio and our roadmap of future products and technologies are perhaps the strongest in Intel’s 40-year history—the result of our strategy to continually invest in innovation, even in difficult economic times. Over the next two years, we plan to invest approximately US$7 billion to upgrade our U.S. factory network with our next-generation 32-nanometer microprocessor manufacturing technology.
We employ more than 80,000 people in over 300 facilities in more than 50 countries. We value the wide range of perspectives that we gain by hiring and developing a diverse workforce, and strive to empower, motivate, and reward the achievements of our employees. In 2008, we invested US$314 million in training and development—an average of US$3,700 and 37.3 hours, or close to a full week of training per employee. We also provide multiple programs, tools and conveniences to help employees balance their work and personal responsibilities, and develop healthier lifestyles. Recently expanded to Malaysia, our award winning Health for Life wellness program enables employees to evaluate their health risks and meet with an onsite health coach to develop individual health action plans.
