It set out a common approach for corporate wide development of policies and practices. The Code applies to every Venture employee around the world without exception.

In addition, the Group engages its supply chain partners and business associates actively in the development and implementation of code similar to its corporate standards and practices.

At Venture, the shared values that bind the Group universally impel its people to strive for business excellence. Similarly, these values inspire every individual in the Group to embrace corporate citizenship with the same spirit.
As such, the Group's corporate social responsibility initiatives extend beyond its statutory obligations. Venture approaches good corporate citizenship as an end in itself rather than as a way to promote the Group and has both selectively and purposefully chosen to support many less prominent charitable organisations that usually face greater challenges in raising funds.
Since its inception, the Group has supported various local community and charitable projects. Apart from corporate contributions and financial assistance towards various worthy social and community programmes, Venture has supported projects related to the performing arts and education.
As part of the Group's Corporate Social Responsibility initiative in collaboration with the Malaysian government, Venture's subsidiary Technocom System embarked on a programme in June 2014 to attract young individuals to consider a dynamic and fulfilling career in the electronics industry, in support of the Malaysian government's Graduate Employability Management Scheme and Venture's Talent Development Program. Through a group of experienced Venture engineers, more than 200 secondary school students were introduced to the fields of science, technology, and engineering.
In 2011, the Group's subsidiary in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in collaboration with a local hospital, launched its annual Venture Blood Donation Campaign. At its 2011 inaugural event, this initiative attracted a healthy turnout. Since then, it has drew more than 700 blood donors in subsequent campaigns. Through this, the Group has demonstrated that community involvement and outreach is championed not only at the corporate level. Every individual within the Group holds this virtuous quality of giving back to society.
Ensuring customer satisfaction - this is the underlying core value on which we have built our quality mission. We believe that quality is the cornerstone of customer satisfaction and provides the foundation for long-lasting partnerships.

Corporate Policy on Exchange of Gifts
The Social Code of Conduct of the Venture Group discourages employees from accepting anything more than modest gifts, and meals from business associates at all times.
Other than ordinary business meals and small tokens of appreciation, employees are advised to decline all gifts which might reasonably be seen to compromise their personal judgement and/or integrity.
Similarly, employees are advised against lavish extension of hospitality and gift-giving.
The Group is however cognizant that there will be business associates including suppliers, customers and contractors who will still bear gifts especially during festive occasions. Employees are thus advised to refer to these guidelines and exercise discretion in the acceptance and retention of the gifts:-
• To observe compliance to acceptable business practices under Venture’s Code of Conduct at all times.
• To advise business associates who are insistence on presenting a gift to address the gift to the Company as opposed to an individual and to have the gift delivered to the Company official address. Employees who are in receipt of gifts at their home, are advised to bring the gifts to the office and declare them accordingly.
• Gifts of value equal to or in excess of S$50 including hampers should be declared to HR for further decision, with the exception of gifts in the form of cakes, cookies and/or other perishable confectioneries which may be distributed and shared among employees.
