Lenovo – Why Work For Us?


Our journey began humbly in 1984 at a guardhouse in China, where Legend Holdings formed with an investment of just RMB 200,000 (US$ 25,000). In 1988, we opened for business in Hong Kong and, in 1996, became China’s largest PC company. We were renamed Lenovo in 2004 and the following year, we acquired the Personal Computer Division from IBM.

In July 2014, Motorola Mobility was acquired from Google, positioning Lenovo as the world’s #3 maker of smartphones. In the same year, we acquired the IBM x86 server business, instantly making us the #3 global provider of x86-based server hardware, software, and services.

Today, Lenovo is a US$45 billion multinational company with 55,000 employees serving customers in over 160 countries. Ranked #286 on the Fortune 500 list, we are proud to be the world’s largest PC vendor. Our portfolio also includes workstations, servers, storage solutions, IT management software, smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, and even apps.

As the world becomes faster, more demanding, and more competitive, our business has expanded beyond PCs. Through continually innovating, we enable our customers to challenge and inspire everyone around them. And help keep things moving forward in a more interesting way.

Our culture defines us … it's our DNA. We call it the Lenovo Way and it's the values we share and the business practices we deploy. It's how we address our day-to-day commitments. The Lenovo Way is embodied in the statement: We do what we say and we own what we do.

That culture also drives how we work every day, utilizing what we call the 5 P's:

  • We PLAN before we pledge.
  • We PERFORM as we promise.
  • We PRIORITIZE the company first.
  • We PRACTICE improving every day.
  • We PIONEER new ideas.

Our culture is what has enabled us to consistently raise the bar on delivering break-through innovations, award-winning designs and strong financial performance.

Maintaining High Ethical Standards

Lenovo is committed to the highest standards of integrity and responsibility when working with all stakeholders. Lenovo provides guidance to its employees on a wide range of ethical issues, such as reporting unlawful or inappropriate conduct, respecting and protecting intellectual property, trading in securities and complying with governmental relations through its Employee Code of Conduct.

Employees are required to report any evidence of fraud, unethical business conduct, violation of laws, danger to health or safety or any other violation of corporate policies. Lenovo respects the intellectual property rights of other companies and individuals, having helped lead the way in fighting piracy in China. In mid-2005, the company began collaborating with Microsoft on an initiative to promote the use and benefits of validly licensed Microsoft® software products through new and innovative joint sales, marketing and training programs in China. Lenovo was the first PC supplier to take this important step, and this action compelled other market leaders in China to follow suit.

Focus on Employee Welfare

Our people are our greatest asset. Lenovo is committed to providing a safe and healthy working environment. We equip employees with products and equipment that are safe for use. We also focus on implementing and improving processes and controls for preventing work-related accidents, injuries and illnesses.

Lenovo's corporate policy, "Responsibility for Employee Health and Safety", focuses on creating and maintaining a workplace that provides for the health and safety of all employees and reinforces the importance Lenovo places on health and safety at every location in which we do business.

Lenovo offers competitive compensation packages and abides by applicable minimum wage requirements in every country and region where we operate. Consequently, Lenovo is recognized as a leading employer around the world.

Philanthropy

Each of Lenovo's actions to give back to society cannot be separated from its employees' participation. We define our corporate responsibility by following the “making the world better because of Lenovo” principle. Lenovo is committed to raising employee awareness on all aspects of responsibility to encourage values that persuade our staff to give their time to volunteer services.


Fortunately, diversity is one of Lenovo's greatest strengths. With roots in the East and the West, Lenovo is a uniquely polycentric business. We have leaders from around the world who are located across the globe; a diverse talent pool; a deep commitment to innovation; and a far-reaching mindset that's fueled by a sense of our long-term responsibility.

The foundation of our success is the Lenovo Way, a cultural initiative that everyone at Lenovo recognizes as a cornerstone to our success. The Lenovo Way is based on planning, performing, prioritizing, practicing improvement, and pioneering. In its simplest form, it means, "We do what we say, and we own what we do." This ownership culture creates a commitment to performance that is taking Lenovo to the top.

Regardless of their location around the world, employees know the Lenovo Way; it serves as a common language and a tie that binds us. By following the Lenovo Way, employees hold themselves and their teams accountable. We succeed when each of us respects and appreciates the diversity of the individuals we work with. We transcend traditional geographic and cultural borders to better anticipate and serve the complex needs of our customers around the world.

This culture is why we are winning in the marketplace and a prime reason we continue to be a globally respected company that people want to work for and with. It's what makes Lenovo unlike any company that has come before. We are proud of our commitment to diversity and value the way it is driving our success as a next-generation technology company.

Lenovo is more than a global technology company. We’re a leader in genuine innovation, dreaming up – and building – the technology and services that enable and inspire progress around the world.

We’re the progressive thinkers, creative doers and endless tinkerers who will always challenge the traditional and who know true groundbreakers never stand still. We’re proud of what we’ve created already and even more excited about where we’re headed.

No matter what team you’re part of, from marketing to IT, this is the type of place where you can create real impact.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and do not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, status as a veteran, and basis of disability or any other federal, state or local protected class.
