Multidimensional Growth for Talent to Create a Better Future
Since its establishment, ZTE has taken talent as one of its cornerstones and adhered to the core values of "respecting each other, endeavoring with creativity". The company has been committed to creating a productive and transparent work environment as well as an open and inclusive corporate culture, to improve the work experiences of employees.

In addition, the company provides systematic and multi-dimensional training, attractive salaries, benefits, incentives, and challenging platforms to achieve a win-win for the company and employees.
To give full play to employees' potential, ZTE provides a matrix of career development paths, including seven position levels and three tracks (management track, professional track, and project track), and designates mentors for new employees to help them adapt to the work environment from three respects: cultural inheritance, work guidance, and emotional support. Such efforts enable employees to quickly fit into the company and identify the most suitable development path for themselves. In addition, ZTE has been continuously improving the employee welfare system and paying high attention to the all-round development of employees.
Regarding employee growth, ZTE keeps working for a better capability building platform and a learning and development community with the collaboration of all parties. Moreover, ZTE enhances the targeted training of employees, explores new models for comprehensive and strategic talent development, and tailors a talent development system.
In terms of employee motivation, ZTE has not only provided performance-based bonuses, but also developed different long-term incentive programs for key talent in the company's different development stages. In this way, all efforts of the employees can be recognized and rewarded.
To offer better opportunities for the development and promotion of outstanding talent, ZTE launched the "Blue Sword Program" in 2014. It is designed to cultivate future leaders by selecting and developing top tech talent. Each Blue Sword member will have a professional mentor and go through systematic training. Mentors will provide guidance for them in terms of daily work, professional direction, and career development.
