Seagate Employees Earn Share Program Gold Award for Seventh Straight Year

SINGAPORE - Singapore's SHARE program, a unique and widely recognized initiative that enables the country's workforce to support community assistance, has announced that employees of Seagate Technology have been honored with the Gold Award for their participation and outstanding contribution to the program.

"Seagate believes in making positive contributions to our community because we recognize our role as a socially responsible leader within communities where our employees live and work," said Jim Chirico, Seagate senior vice president and general manager, Worldwide Operations. "We are pleased that our employees have responded so positively to the call for support and involvement to assist those who are in need. We are proud of their commitment over the last seven years and look forward to their continued enthusiasm in the years to come."

Organized by the National Council of Social Service, the SHARE (Social Help and Assistance Raised by Employees) Program makes it possible for employees to contribute a fixed amount each month through their payroll to help individuals in need throughout the community.

Only companies who have greater than 50 percent employee participation are recognized in the Gold Award category. Seagate has maintained its status as a Gold Award recipient since 1993. In 1999, the Company was given a 5-Year Outstanding SHARE Program Award for helping maintain this significant level of contribution.
