  • At Siemens, we are determined to meet - and wherever possible, exceed - all legal and ethical requirements. Our responsibility is to conduct all business according to the highest professional and ethical standards and practices: there must be no tolerance for non-compliant behavior. The principles related to 'responsible' serve as the moral compass by which we navigate our way through our business decisions.

Excellent:  Achieving high performance and excellent results.

  • We aim for excellence in all areas and we do everything to achieve this aim. Our vision defines this aim and inspires us to provide outstanding quality and impressive solutions for our customers. Always.
  • Excellence also means attracting the best people in the marketplace and giving them the skills and opportunities they need to become high achievers. This approach promotes a high-performance, profitable culture at our company.
  • Excellence is about constantly challenging existing processes and defining a path of continuous improvements. It also requires us to be flexible and proactive and to embrace change so that we are always positioned to optimally leverage new business opportunities.

Culture

People at Siemens are thinkers, dreamers and doers.  That’s why we recruit people with more than just a passion for disruptive ideas – they must also have the courage to bring them to life.  We believe those ideas can come from anywhere.  It’s how we design and implement over 7,600 different inventions around the world each year. Some emerged from our 36-hour hackathons, others were simply thought of while sitting outside in our cafe. There’s no working behind closed doors here. We invite everyone to work collaboratively and act as if Siemens were their own company – it’s all part of our Ownership Culture.
