Abstract: Siemens AG is a global technology company that has been operating for more than 165 years. The company is active worldwide, focusing on the areas of electrification, automation and digitalisation. Siemens AG is a producer of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies, such as offshore wind-turbine construction, supplying combined cycle turbines for power generation, providing power transmission solutions as well as infrastructure solutions and automation, drive and software solutions for industry.


At the end of September 2014, the company had around 357,000 employees worldwide. It is therefore important to maintain and further develop a high-quality work environment for Siemens’ employees. Such work environments are also critical to be attractive to the best talents of tomorrow. At Siemens, the new way of working is about creating a setting that enables employees to choose the best working environment based on the tasks at hand, while fostering a spirit of collaboration and inspiring them to perform at their fullest potential. Employees in the new environment enjoy a culture of trust, state-of-the-art IT and innovative office concepts, allowing space for creativity, collaboration and personal responsibility.
