Promote the implementation of ethical corporate management

SYNNEX 's values: "We uphold the principle of integrity and the highest business ethics, and do not provide incentives to influence the behavior of others against the interests of employers or companies, and our employees are not allowed to accept such incentives." All employees in Synnex  are required to follow the "Work Rules" formulated and verified by the Labor Bureau, which stipulate the code of conduct for employees in service, labor laws and regulations, anti-discrimination, etc., as well as the punishment norms for employees who violate the rules.  


We require all our partners to sign the "Anti-Corruption Commitment" in order to truly meet the integrity value standards of Synnex. We also hold regular weekly meetings and monthly reports so that all colleagues can regularly communicate with supervisors at all levels on work and integrity matters, and have an internal audit department dedicated to handling related matters. Through various forms of communication, we have established a consensus among all members of Synnex .

All employees can absorb operational compliance knowledge at any time and in a timely manner, and deeply cultivate the concept of integrity and legal compliance.



Independent and impartial periodic audits

The annual audit plan of the audit office has listed the integrity elements such as suppliers and customers as necessary to cover the work, reviewed the reasonableness of the operation of the audit target and appropriately assessed its hidden risks, and if necessary, will entrust accountants or relevant professionals to assist in the audit to ensure the perfection of compliance.
