CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

 
Workforce and Diversity Performance

We report workforce data to our external stakeholders annually. These metrics, combined with employee survey data, help us determine how we can improve in specific areas throughout our enterprise. The data show a diverse, engaged employee base, with a turnover rate well below the industry average

We gather information for this report at the end of the fiscal year, and certain data points below reflect a snapshot of the employee base at that time. The number of employees differs slightly from the figures reported in NVIDIA’s 10-K, and the number of interns is lower because we had fewer interns on board at the end of our fiscal year.

Promotions

In FY15, we promoted approximately 15.73% of our workforce. Of the 1,452 promotions, 34(1.7% percent) were at the level of director or above, 1,200(82.6% percent) were from minority classes, and 223 (15.4% percent) were women.

Diversity

As stated in our Equal Employment Opportunity Policy and Code of Conduct, we are committed to providing equal opportunity to all employees and applicants.

The level of diversity at NVIDIA reflects the technology and engineering industries as a whole. Roughly 72 percent of NVIDIA employees are from technical fields that are historically male-dominated. We seek to address gender imbalances in the technology and engineering fields through programs aimed at increasing the number of women and minorities in engineering. Learn more about our approach to Diversity in the Value Chain Impacts section of this site.
