Microchip's Guiding Values

We are on a relentless quest for perfection and are committed to the goal of zero defects. We will perform correctly the first time and maintain our company's quality management system certifications to ensure customer satisfaction. We employ the aggregate system so that all employees anticipate problems and implement root cause solutions using effective and standardized improvement methods. We believe that quality is built-in, and not inspected in; and that when quality comes first, reduced costs follow.

We establish successful customer partnerships by exceeding customer expectations for products, services and attitude, while ensuring that our intellectual property is protected as we exchange information and share knowledge. We start by understanding our customer's needs, earning our credibility by producing quality products, delivering comprehensive total systems solutions and meeting commitments. We believe each employee must effectively serve their internal customers in order for Microchip's external customers to be properly served.

We utilize the concept of "Vital Few" to establish our priorities. We concentrate our resources on continuously improving Vital Few while empowering each employee to make continuous improvements in their area of responsibility. We strive for constructive and honest self-criticism to identify improvement opportunities.

We design jobs and provide opportunities promoting employee teamwork, productivity, creativity, pride in work, trust, integrity, fairness, involvement, development and empowerment. We base recognition, advancement and compensation on an employee's achievement of excellence in company, team and individual performance. We provide for employee health and welfare by offering competitive and comprehensive employee benefits.

We make ongoing investments and advancements in the design and development of our manufacturing processes, device, circuit, system and software technologies and services. We value and protect intellectual properties that allow us to develop timely, innovative, reliable and cost effective total system solutions that give our customers the freedom to innovate for today and tomorrow.

We focus resources to optimize cycle times to our internal and external customers by empowering employees to achieve efficient cycle times in their area of responsibility. We believe that cycle time reduction is achieved by streamlining processes through the systematic removal of barriers to productivity.

We place our concern for the health, safety, and security of our employees, company, property, personal data, and community at the forefront of our decisions, policies and actions. We are all individually and collectively responsible for safety and security.

We strive to generate and maintain industry leading rates of company profits and growth as they allow continued investment in the future, enhanced employee opportunity, and represent the overall success of Microchip.

We encourage appropriate, honest, constructive and timely communication in company, customer, investor, government and community relationships to resolve issues, exchange information and share knowledge.

We strive to maintain professional and mutually beneficial partnerships with those suppliers, representatives, distributors, design houses and consultants who are an integral link in the achievement of our mission and guiding values.
