The Organizational Development Center has devised a talent blueprint to enhance the Company's overall competitiveness and maximize the potential for learning in the Company. In line with the latest trends in the field of AI and the Company's digital transformation strategy, talent cultivation is constantly fostered and employees are provided with much needed new skills for the age of intelligent technologies.In terms of hard skills, we engage external and internal instructors to deliver professional knowledge and skills and hold technology forums for learning new technologies. As for soft skills, we focus on talents'ability to maintain interpersonal relationships and to communicate.In addition, Getac has designed a wide range of courses based on the employees'needs for different career development phases. We also continuously develop online training tools, give more course selection and promote comprehensive learning while ensuring the continuous learning of the employees during the pandemic through livestreaming or pre-recorded videos.

In 2021, the average number of hours of education and training received by all employees of Getac Holdings Corporation was 60.73, a decrease of 14.67 hours compared to 2020. The difference is due to the fact that during the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to avoid social clusters, fewer physical courses and large-scale courses were held for direct employees, and fewer external courses were attended by supervisors and indirect employees, which is the main reason for the decrease in total training hours. However, the number of training hours for indirect employees increased rather than decreased. In recent years, the Company has been optimizing the content of online digital courses, so that employees are free to enroll in them according to their individual job requirements and use their free time to complete them online. In 2021, indirect employees received 62.91 hours of training and supervisors received 48.60 hours of training.
