And congratulations on joining the NIKE team. “Team” may seem a somewhat overlooked notion, but it is one of particular relevance to our Company and its inherent links to the world of athletics. Here you will find many parallels to winning teams, including the potent mix of star performance and team cooperation. NIKE has the need and the room for both. I hope that you are entering into something that is not simply a job, but an important, creative and pleasurable part of your life. NIKE has grown from a handful of people with some new ideas about running shoes into a global company seeking to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world. And as our co-founder and first teacher Bill Bowerman said, “If you have a body, you are an athlete.” Our mission is a tall order. And it comes with increase expectation from our consumers and, most importantly, from ourselves. To succeed, we need good people (that’s why we hire you), sound planning (you’ll be expected to contribute) and a bit of good fortune. At NIKE you are expected to contribute, at least 100% of your best thinking. In your work, I hope you’ll have ideas about better products, improved manufacturing and marketing, enhanced services, and ways to help our business grow. We want to hear from you. Your insights are as important to us as the job into which you have been hired. NIKE can never have too many good ideas.

Phillip H. Knight

Chairman of the Board, Co-Founder of Nike


At NIKE, we play hard, we play to win, but we play by the rules of the game. We master the fundamental and we do the right thing. There is nothing better being a part of a smart, strong, courageous and innovative team. This Employee Policy Handbook was developed to help you better understand your role as a team member of Nike (Thailand) Limited. It includes basic information about our company policies and procedures, guidelines and practices, and employee benefits and services. It would be good for you to familiarize yourself with these and to keep this handbook handy for future references. However, this handbook is meant to serve as a guide only and is not intended as a substitute for discussion between you and your supervisor when job related issues arise. Nike (Thailand) limited at its sole discretion reserves right to change, modify, suspend, interpret or cancel, in whole or in part, the provision of the Employee Handbook. This includes any of the published or unpublished human resources policies and procedures, without advance notice, without having to give cause justification or consideration to any employee. Recognition of these rights and prerogatives of Nike (Thailand) limited is a term and condition of employment. This handbook may not contain all Nike (Thailand) Limited policies, procedures and practices. Any oral statement or promises made on policy matters are not binding to Nike (Thailand) Limited. In this respect any oral statement should be referred to Human Resources and/or the Country Leadership Team who must subsequently give written confirmation for it to be effective. Nike was named after the Greek Goddess of victory, and true to our namesake, we take pride in having winners on our team. It is our privilege to count you as one of them. We're glad to have you on the team! Now, let’s play!

NIKE MISSION STATEMENT To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete* in the world *If you have a body, you are an athlete. Max•im\ mak-s m\ noun 1: a general truth, fundamental principle, or rule of conduct 2: a proverbial saying From the Merriam-Webster Dictionary




The purpose of the maxim is to outline the nature and future of NIKE. This is crucial for new employees. If you are a long-time veteran, you need it even more. There is tremendous opportunity ahead, more than ever before. If we are to compete successfully, if we are to seize that opportunity and grow, we must do two things: Focus and change. Focus on the superior thinking and practices that pushed us to where we are. Change to meet and lead the demands of 21st century business and culture. When we can do these two things with unity and passion, we will be one of the great companies of the world.

Maxim 1 - It Is Our Nature to Innovate NIKE has many synonyms for innovation: NIKE Air. Mars Blackmon. Swift. Waffle. Shox. Whatever the name, the approach is the same: Think something nobody else has thought, or improve something that already exists. Lighter, faster, stronger, bigger, smaller, funnier. Make it better. Make it worthwhile. Envision possibilities. Accelerate them through new relationships. Within and beyond product. This is what we do best.

Maxim 2 - NIKE Is A Company A big company at that. WE call it NIKE, Inc., and it lives in many worlds: product, sport, media, entertainment, lifestyle and retail. Our position allows us to create growth in any or all of these industries. And we will. It may be about sports. It may not. It may be a NIKE product. It may be a license product. It may have no overt NIKE connection whatsoever. It’s like this: NIKE, Inc. exists to organize the pursuit and acquisition of opportunity, as long as that opportunity brings with it innovation and the ability to serve human potential.

Maxim 3 - NIKE is A Brand We call it the Swoosh. A little red checkmark that is the symbol of the global leadership in sport product and attitude. Internally, the Swoosh is our incubator for great research, design and development, and the machine to get that thinking on the athletes of the world. When we succeed at this, when there is a category we dominate, it is because we insist on complete involvement. Total immersion and investment. NIKE wins when NIKE is of the game, not just in the game. Conversely, when we are in a category just to skim a few bucks off the top, we do ourselves more harm than good. The key is to stay true growth and authenticity.



Maxim 4 - Simplify And Go An opinion is not a point of view. Commentary is not commitment. Observation is not action. Life is too short and the competition too fast for us to spend time in pointless debate and gratuitous nuance. The more honest and clear we are with each other, the faster we move and the better the result. • State your position clearly • Trust the expertise of others • Ask question when you don’t know • Answer questions when you do know • Demand cooperation • Reject all measure of success other than quality • Innovate and win • Pretend to innovate and lose • Believe in dreams

Maxim 5 - The Consumer Decides Consumers are more sophisticated and educated in their buying behavior than any previous generation. There are two paths to success with them. First, listen intently to find out what is meaning in their lives. Then provide a product that is useful on a practical and an emotional level. Or, build something so intuitively perfect or psychotically different that they must have it even though they never imagined it could exist. Both ways are legitimate. Both are specialties of NIKE. The warning is equally simply: The day you take them for granted is the day that they leave you.

Maxim 6 - Be A Sponge

The philosopher Sir Nicholas Bacon once wrote, “It is the wise person who knows there is more to know than what they know, you know?” Or was it Kevin Bacon? Either way it’s a good thought. Insightful. Take his advice. Look around you. Develop wide peripheral vision. There are great ideas lying around like diamonds in the dirt. The brightest are those you see out of the corner of your eyes.

Maxim 8 – Do The Right Thing •

Take responsibility. Embrace the truth. Offer transparency. Participate in and help shape our evolution as a global citizen. Talk openly about our challenges as well as success. See Diversity. Elevate performance through a constant search for diversity. Don’t look for the things that make us different. Look for the things that make us better. Drive Sustainability. This is not a result. It is a process. It starts with concept and design, continues through the entire product cycle, and extends into every corner of NIKE operations. Create zero waste. It is an overly ambitious objective, just the kind we like.



Maxim 9 – Master The Fundamentals The great ones accept no substitutes. The commitment to excel and unwavering focus on process is at the root of superior performance. Lance Armstrong knows it. Two weeks after brain surgery, when mere mortals would just be waking up, he was in his back yard, spinning furiously in preparation for his return to road. NIKE knows it, too. We are a big company, incredibly complex yet able to deliver at a level and pace that others won’t even attempt. None of it is easy. It requires constant vigilance and refinement of the machine. Without it, nothing else matters.

Maxim 10 – We Are On The Offence, Always Our playing field is changing. Business is racing into a new era of lifestyle information and shared services. Sports are becoming more integrated into people’s lives while it is becoming less organized. Consumers are smarter than ever. This is all great for NIKE. Now is the time to be aggressive. Seek our smart partners. Pick your sports to invest resources where they make the most difference. Focus more on result and less on appearances. Challenge and correct misconceptions about the company. (There are many.) Conceive big ideas and create partnerships that allow them to grow. Act like you are a part of a smart, strong, courageous and innovative company, because you are.

Maxim 11 – Remember The Man His name is Bowerman. It’s German for “builder man” He did more to shape athletics and NIKE around the world than any three people combined. Strategically eccentric. A natural motivator. Complete in his understanding of sports and athlete. Tireless in his pursuit of innovation. There is no book that can give justice to his contribution, no movie that can express his spirit. Study him.

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying” - Michael Jordan





EMPLOYMENT & PLACEMENT Team Members Full-Time Employees A full-time employee (FTE) is an employee on Nike Thailand payroll other than a casual, seasonal, temporary or on-call employee, a leased employee (external temporary employee) or an independent contractor. An FTE is employed on a permanent basis following probation. As an FTE, you are part of an elite team and your Employee Identification Card (ID card), issued by Human Resources (HR), is your membership badge. Wear it with pride, on a lanyard, at all times while on office premises and/or official business functions within the office building. Keep it safe...a lost ID card results in a penalty. This ID card is considered company property and should be returned to the Company upon termination of employment.

Draft Pick: The Hiring Processs



Many people consider joining the Nike Team as their dream job, and we agree. It’s a great company, one we are all happy to be a part of. Only a chosen few can live the dream, though, and they are picked via a careful, thorough selection process.

Recruitment may be done externally or internally.

HR interviews all qualified candidates together with the respective Functional Leader and/or Hiring Manager. Candidates are evaluated based on their skills sets, the competencies that they possess, their relevant work experience, and what they can bring to the team. Short-listed candidates may be interviewed by the Commercial Director and/or a member of the SEA SMT before a final decision is made to draft any of them to the team.

Whether a position is new or open; whether it requires a transfer, job upgrade, promotion, or replacement; the Country HR Manager and local Hiring Manager work in tandem to gain the Commercial Director’s approval to fill a spot on the team. Hiring requests are endorsed to the Nike South East Asia (SEA) HR Director and respective SEA-level Functional Leader for final approval. From there, the actual process of recruiting, selecting and appointing new hires begins.

External Recruitment deals with applications and/or resumes received from outside the Company by whatever sources commissioned. Internal Recruitment refers to transfers within the Company. Equal opportunity to be transferred, promoted or upgraded is available to all employees who wish to pursue advancement in their careers with us.


EMPLOYMENT & PLACEMENT Appointment HR typically makes job offers and initiates appointments to successful candidates based on recommendations and inputs from all affected parties. A pre-employment Kit will be given to confirmed appointees which must be completed by the new hire and returned to HR at least one week before his/her start date. In order to assure that they can perform their jobs without causing a direct threat to the health and safety of themselves or anyone else, newly appointed employees may be required to undergo a medical/ physical examination at the Company’s expense (mostly for purposes of insurance coverage).

Probationary Period To successfully assemble our dream team, we need to go beyond first impressions. This is why those hired as full-time employees of the Company- regardless of job level-serve in a probationary capacity for the first six months of employment. The probationary period allows both the Company and the employee to determine if there is a “fit” to the expectations of both. This period is meant as a time for you to learn your job and for your supervisor to evaluate your performance. You will be considered a “regular” FTE once this probation period is successfully completed. During probation, termination of employment by either party will be one week’s notice in writing or one week’s pay in lieu of notice. No reason whatsoever needs to be furnished by either party.

Employment of Relatives It is Company policy that relatives of current employees will not be eligible for employment with Nike if the Company, at its sole discretion, determines that such employment might create problems or issues of supervision, confidentiality, morale, or conflicts of interest. The CLT administers this policy. • The Company discourages employees from working in close physical proximity to or under the direct supervision or leadership of any relative. • If two employees, not previously related, become related or marry during their employment, and the Company, at it’s sole discretion determines that this might cause problems or issues of supervision, confidentiality, morale, or conflicts of interest, or an appearance of impropriety, one of the employees will be permitted to stay in his/her current position whilst the other will be transferred or terminated unless reasonable solutions can be achieve to alleviate the potential problem(s). If the Company determines that both cannot remain in their positions, the employees concerned must decide which of them will remain in his/her current position, within a 30-day period. If there is refusal, the Company will require the employee with the shorter length of service to make a change in his/her position. For more information on the Employee On-boarding Program, please visit HR SharePoint online.

For the Rookie: Employee on Boarding Program Nike SEA implements a standard employee on-boarding program across countries in the sub-region, including Thailand. This process begins as soon as you sign on to the Team and helps us to ensure that you fully understand the Company’s Mission and Maxims, as well as the policies and procedures. This process is jointly administered by HR and the Hiring Manager.



It is Company policy to consider and encourage internal job transfer when we see that it can be mutually beneficial for you and for us. Transfers are typically initiated by Management based on an employee’s developmental needs and potential contribution to growing the business. An employee may be moved from one function to another, or one country to another. HR co-ordinates this transfer process according to these guidelines: • Employees identified and selected are given individual letters informing them of the transfer and changes taking place, e.g. re-designation, reporting lines, job scope. • Employees transfer on a date acceptable to functions concerned. • Employees requesting for transfer must have been in the current position and in the Company’s service for the last 12 months. • Exceptions to this policy will be considered individually and may require the recommendation of the Functional Leader concerned and approval by the SEA HR Director. • Employees desiring a transfer must formally request such from both their immediate supervisor and the Country HR Manager.

In the course of your employment, the Company may request that you and your family temporarily relocate to another country. Inasmuch as all employees are eligible for relocation, eligibility requirements specific to the job duties and responsibilities, ability and target location will determine potential candidates. In case of relocation, it is Company policy to attempt to minimize the inconvenience and financial hardship that such a move may incur. HR administers this policy according to the following guidelines: • Prior authorization of the SEA HR Director is necessary before any discussions on relocation can begin. • All relocations must be agreed to in writing by the respective SEA-level Functional Leader with the approval of the SEA HR Director. • All newly hired employees or employees relocated on an extended basis must sign authorized assignment agreements, which will be prepared by SEA HR. • All relocation expenses will be charged to the hiring or host countries. • All monies paid to employees and expenses incurred on employee’s behalf are deemed to be repayable advances until the employee concerned has fulfilled the requirements of his/her authorized written assignment • An employee who voluntarily terminates his/her employment prior to the end of the assignment term as prescribed in his/her written assignment agreement must reimburse the Company for all relocation expenses incurred by the Company.

There are four general types of transfer assignments within the organization that require relocation: Global Transfer is when an employee is moved from South East Asia region to another country, e.g. Thailand to the United States of America. In such cases, the assigned employee remains in his/her home country’s payroll. These assignments typically last for two years. Intra-regional Transfer is when an employee is assigned to a country within the South East Asia region to another country that is not his/her own, e.g. Thailand to Singapore. In such cases, the assigned employee remains in his/her home country’s payroll. These assignments typically last for two years. Developmental Assignment happens when an employee is sent on assignment in another country for a period of one year or less. In such cases, the assigned employee remains in his/her home country’s payroll. Note that an employee may be given a development assignment where he or she is transferred from one function to another, e.g., from Finance to Operations. However, this may occur within the country and not involve relocation. Local Transfer is when an employee is assigned to another country on a local package. In the case, an employee must resign from his/her current country’s organization and is “hired” by a new country.

EMPLOYMENT & PLACEMENT Official working days are Monday to Friday with official working hours from 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. Lunch break is from 12.00 noon to 1.00p.m. However, it is important to note that due to the nature of our business, every employee is expected and required to work additional hours when necessary to complete assignments or projects. You may be required to fulfill your duties either in the office or in places where it is necessary to visit such as a retailer’s office or at an assigned store.

Attendance You must advise your direct supervisor if you cannot report for work as scheduled or if you need to leave early from work. Human Resources oversees this attendance policy with active assistance from all Functional Leaders. •

• •

If you are unable to report for work as scheduled, or expert to be late or leave early from work, you must notify your immediate supervisor as soon as possible before your scheduled starting or leaving time in order to allow alternate arrangements to be made. If you are unable to inform or notify your supervisor, you must notify Human Resources as early as possible for the message to be relayed to your team. Excessive absenteeism or tardiness may result in disciplinary action, not excluding termination. Absence of three or more workdays without notification to your direct supervisor may result in termination of employment.

Meal Periods A stipulated meal period is provided for all employees in accordance with the local laws. You are expected to be prompt when returning to your work location after the stipulated meal periods.

Public Holidays We observe all declared locally relevant public holidays. These are those which the local government has proclaimed as non-working days. Please refer to HR SharePoint for an official list of Public Holidays (updated annually).

Get your Head in the Game: The performance management process At Nike, we are committed to identifying, developing and retaining our talent. We believe in rewarding good work. Excellent performance by eligible employees is taken into consideration for upgrading or promotion to the next level.



EMPLOYMENT & PLACEMENT The Coaching for Excellence (CFE) process is management tool we use for performance planning, ongoing coaching and informal progress checkpoints to help you achieve your business goals through the fiscal year. It also provides you with the opportunity to give and receive feedback, to discuss developmental plans, and to determine what resources and support are needed to ensure success at Nike. The CFE is a critical management function, not because it is a people management tool, but because it provides a strong link to our business management process. Performance discussions are formally conducted and documented in the months of December and May of each fiscal year, with evaluation results agreed upon by the CLT and approved by the SMT in January (for mid-year performance review) and June (for year-end performance review). Year-end CFE ratings results have a direct link to your pay. Salaries are reviewed at the end of each fiscal year and adjustments are made in August. Although the process is driven by HR, the success of the CFE process is a shared responsibility to both you and your Manager.

Individual Development Plan (IDP) We believe that you never stop learning and that continuous training is necessary for a winning team. Nike is committed to the development of every member of our team and, through SEA HR, we offer formal learning and development programs for all levels of employees. Functional leaders to take an active role in an employee’s career development through any of the following: •

• •

• •

Monitoring employee needs and progress via an identified career path using the Performance Management Process, specifically organization Talent Planning (OTP). Providing Product and technical Training via internal and/or external training on products and methodology. Providing training and guidance through Nike SEA’s internal systems and processes (standard application software, soft skills and supervisory/management skills programs). Providing guidance on Nike SEA methodology processes and practices. Offering academic education specific to and in direct relation to an employee’s job responsibilities. Offering industry specific training (leading to certification; and/or addressing related issues). Providing experience through exposure such as placement in a position where an employee’s role is enhanced through long term or short term on-job assignments and special projects.

It is important that you become an active participant in your own career development. By working together with HR and your Manager, you will be able to identify and implement the individual development plan that will help you gain the skills and experience you need to advance. For more information on the Employee On-boarding Program, please visit HR SharePoint online.


Coaching for Excellence (CFE)

EMPLOYMENT & PLACEMENT Moonlighting: Other Employment

Nike is more than just an office in a country. We deploy the best talent against the most critical business opportunities to realize both Company and individual potential. Organization Talent Planning (OTP) helps us drive accountability for functional capability and deepen the leadership bench. This process involves thoroughly assessing individual employees’ critical work experiences, their strengths and developmental areas, their mobility and career aspirations, as well as their potential to continue to contribute positively to the organization. Through OTP, employees may be moved from one role to another, possibly in other functions, other Nike organizations and even other countries.

We invest a lot in the growth and development of every member of our team and expect you to invest your time and effort in return. As such, Company policy prohibits all employees from undertaking any job or occupation while they are employed by Nike Thailand Ltd. as this may pose a potential conflict of interest that could compromise your performance or the Company’s position in the business community. It doesn’t matter if it’s a full-time, part-time or casual job. You must have the expressed written permission of your direct supervisor, approval from the Country Director HR Manager and the concurrence of the Commercial Director to take on other employment while you are a member of our team.

For more information on the Performance Management Process (CFE, IDP or OTP), please visit HR SharePoint or the Nike Zero website.

End of the Line: Termination While we hope that you enjoy a long and happy career with us, there are cases and situations that may cause an end to employment. After probation, either an employee or the Company may terminate employment by giving to each other party one month’s notice in writing for voluntary separation or one month’s salary in lieu of notice in case of involuntary separation. For employees in Band U positions or higher, up to three months’ notice in writing for voluntary separation or three months’ salary in lieu of notice for involuntary separation. No reason whatsoever needs to be furnished by either party.

Termination means the point at which an employee leaves employment of the Company for any reason.

Resignation means any termination elected by the employee, except termination for retirement.

Retirement is a termination by the employee which

includes application for, qualification for, and acceptance of benefits under the respective retirement plan withdrawals.

Retrenchment means involuntary termination resulting from workforce reductions or organization right sizing.

Dismissal refers to an involuntary termination of the employee other than retrenchment.

You must avoid any action or relationships that could conflict with, or appear to conflict with, the interests of the Company.

Gifts and Entertainment One of Nike’s Maxims is “Do The Right Thing”. Part of doing the right thing means that we make our business decisions with honesty and integrity based on objective factors like cost, quality, value, service, ability to carry through on commitments, etc. This includes decisions about which external partners we work with, such as vendors, contact factories and suppliers, and how we work with them. Because of this, we want to avoid even the appearance of making business decisions based on improper factors. Therefore, Nike employees may not accept or offer gifts, gratuities, entertainment, or favors unless they are of nominal value 1,000 THB or less and are normal and customary given the business circumstance. Employees may not accept or offer cash at any time and should never accept or offer gifts, favors or entertainment if there is any expectation of a return favor implied. Any employee who receives a gift that falls outside of the acceptable guidelines must report it to their manager, who will decide whether the employee may keep the gift or turn it over to the Company.

Office and Personal Conduct Security

It is the policy of the company to ensure that all employees must be mindful of the safe custody of the company’s premises and properties at all times. In this respect, the Company expects all employees to report to their immediate supervisors any matter of a nature detrimental to the company that may have come to their direct or indirect attention. Employees are expected not to indulge in any form of activity that would be potentially detrimental to the operations of the company.

Dress Code and Appearance

Housekeeping You are expected to keep your work area neat and clean in order to prevent injuries, to promote an organized workflow and to maintain an attractive facility. You are also strongly encouraged to "clean as you go" and are expected to assist in maintaining the cleanliness and orderliness of the office facilities (reception area, meeting rooms, Play Room, pantry).

Personal Telephone Calls/Mail/ Visitors

It is understandable that some personal calls must be made during business hours, although it is a practice that we strongly discourage. While sometimes unavoidable, personal calls must be kept brief and at a minimum. Personal long distance telephone calls must be reported to the Finance Team and will be reimbursed via payroll deduction.

Outgoing personal mail will not be processed through the company unless the employee pays the appropriate postage, Bulky personal mail will not be processed under any circumstances. Personal visitors to the office should be met in an area where other employees will not be distracted, and the meeting should be kept as brief as possible.





We take care of our team and have assembled a competitive compensation and benefits package, as well as a number of attractive extras to reward you for a job well done. Our aim is to match or exceed what at least half of the local working population in similar jobs receive, statistically. By participating in an annual compensation and benefits survey, we are able to compare our programs with other organizations, and thus determine pay levels and any applicable benefits improvements. All HR programs and policies are reviewed during the second half of the fiscal year together with the survey results.

Milestone and Developmental Awards Nike celebrates team members who go the extra mile and deliver exceptional results. Our one-off Milestone Award recognizes significant performance outside the call of duty or during particularly challenging assignments. In the same vein, the one-off Developmental Award is recognition for a significant increase in responsibilities or a transfer from one job to a different job within the same band. Generally, an increase in the level of accountabilities and skills goes hand-in-hand with this award. Recommendations are completed by the relevant Functional Leader and approved by the SEA Human Resource Director.

Overtime Payment/ Time Off Sometimes, you may need to undertake extended working hours beyond the Company’s stated working hours as a requirement of your particular job.


Due to the nature of our work at Nike, employees are not entitled to any payment for overtime.
