INVISTA, together with SCUT, contribute to chemical talent development
INVISTA, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of chemical intermediates, polymers and fibers, is contributing to talent development in the chemical industry via interactions with South China University of Technology (SCUT). The company awarded the “INVISTA Encouragement Scholarship” to students from School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and held a “Principled EntrepreneurshipTM Talents” forum.
South China University of Technology is a national university directly managed by the China Ministry of Education. Through this scholarship, INVISTA aims to support and encourage outstanding chemistry undergraduates and graduates to pursue education and research, becoming attractive international candidates in the chemical industry. At the forum, INVISTA explained the qualification required by the chemical industry and the importance of embracing corporate culture. SCUT graduates working in INVISTA also shared their experience with students, helping transition them from university to the workforce.
“The key of INVISTA’s Market-Based Management® (MBM®) philosophy is creating real long-term value for customers and society as a whole, in which integrity and compliance are our basic guiding principles. We believe students will find our corporate culture and the professional ethics education very beneficial,” said Ms Wu, Deputy Secretary of the Party committee of the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering College of SCUT.
“INVISTA looks forward to sharing our unique value and beliefs with students at universities. We discussed striving for environmental excellence; protecting the environment and the safety and health of its workers and others; using resources more efficiently; consistently applying good science; and employing Market-Based Management®. We’re sure that those ideas are crucial to cultivating practitioners in the chemical industry,” said Julie Walton, INVISTA Asia Pacific Government & Public Affairs director.
As part of INVISTA’s community outreach initiatives, its offices and manufacturing sites in the region participate in and support corporate citizenship projects including scholarship programs, entrepreneurship education and youth enablement, relief efforts and emergency responders. INVISTA also encourages employee involvement in projects that enhance the overall quality of life in the communities in which it operates. Besides SCUT, INVISTA has also supported local education by providing scholarship to schools in Qingpu District, Shanghai and Sanshui District, Foshan.
