A Global Citizen

Synopsys is committed to providing a safe, secure, and productive environment for our employees, customers, and visitors. Our operations adhere to global labor, health, and safety policies and practices.

Labor

Synopsys maintains a workplace where all employees, customers, and suppliers are treated with dignity, fairness, and respect. We maintain worldwide policies applicable to all employees in furtherance of these principles. We pride ourselves on providing a healthy, safe, and productive work environment that is free from discrimination or harassment based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, age, national origin, disability, marital status, military service, or any other status protected by law. We also make reasonable accommodations for applicants and employees with disabilities consistent with applicable laws and regulations.

Synopsys follows local laws and regulations regarding labor and employment. We only use voluntary labor and we uphold the worker's right to freedom of association. We do not use child labor or employ anybody under the age of 18. We do not exceed prevailing local work hours and we appropriately compensate any overtime hours worked.

 

Safety & Physical Security

There are a variety of regulatory mandates that enforce workplace health, safety, and security practices across any business. These inform our initiatives here at Synopsys by establishing a minimum standard for expected performance across our global organization. But we aspire to be world-class in every part of our business, especially when it comes to the safety and security of our employees and operations.

As such, we strive to produce a work environment for our people around the globe that is free of accident, illness, and violence. We work to achieve this goal by engaging with our people through ongoing vigilance, prevention, and awareness.

As our business grows and evolves, we will continue to ensure workplace health, safety, and security while meeting our goals for operational productivity, efficiency, and customer service. Synopsys drives these efforts through communication and education around issues and opportunities in four specific areas:
 

  • Workplace Health & Safety
    We identify and manage hazards and prevent illness and injuries in the workplace by establishing proper safeguards and by keeping our employees informed
  • Physical Security
    We instill proactive adherence to security procedures and vigilant awareness for safeguarding our employees, the company, and its assets
  • Emergency Preparedness & Resiliency
    We encourage a perpetual state of awareness and alertness to enable quick and mindful action in the case of an emergency to protect our people and operations from disruption and harm
  • Travel Safety
    We support a continuous safety and security mindset outside of the workplace and around the world for travelling employees
     

Through continuous and cooperative efforts, Synopsys creates and nurtures a positive safety and security culture across the company.
