GlobalFoundries (GF), one of the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers with a truly global footprint, boasts more than 10,000 patents and applications across 23 locations. This global company is delivering a new “era of more” by developing feature-rich semiconductor process technology solutions, all while celebrating their more than 15,000 employees across all corners of the globe.

As part of its mission, GF works hard to understand and appreciate the different life experiences and career journeys of its global workforce, and it takes great pride in helping its employees learn and grow throughout the entirety of their careers. 

In this article, we’ll discuss GF’s newest milestone in its commitment to providing employees with equitable career development and advancement opportunities: The Global Journey Re-Entry Program. Read on to see how this program can help kickstart your career!

Why you should return to the workforce at GF.

 The Global Journey Re-Entry Program at GF will help you grow professionally, refresh skills and gain new ones, all while easing back into a full-time role.

“This program offers the necessary support for you to be successful, including a comprehensive on-boarding experience, training, access to mentors, peer support, and networking opportunities,” the company says of the program. 

By entering the Global Journey Re-Entry Program, you will receive:

  1. Development journey assistance: Comprehensive on-boarding experience, technical training and meaningful projects matching company goals and your interest.

  2. Work-life balance: Flexible options based on job function and role.

  3. Peer support: Frequent meetings with your cohorts and peers for support throughout the program.

  4. Mentorship: Coaching through conversations and access to a dedicated program support group.

  5. Networking opportunities: Interaction with GF leadership team members.

  6. An opportunity to change an industry that’s changing the world: The program marks GF’s next innovative initiative in building a complete and winning team.

And, for the company as a whole, this program is helping to enhance GF’s diversity and inclusion goals and fulfill its mission to create a culture that values and attracts talent with diverse insights and backgrounds. As such, a goal of this re-entry program is to “empower candidates to bring their unique talents and experiences to contribute to the dynamic working environment that drives GF’s success,” says Emma Cheer, Director Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leader. 

GF’s focus on inclusion is a cornerstone of the company’s culture. “There are really great DE&I programs that I have never had in any other company,” one FGBer says of her experience working at GF. “It really allows you to reach out and be an employee who can contribute in all different areas.” And this commenter isn’t alone: 93% of FGBers say that women are treated fairly and equally to men and would recommend the company to other women — and why 100% believe that their CEO supports gender diversity.

As such, the re-entry program is yet another example that GF cares about its employees and values their diverse perspectives
