Diversity brings more competition, innovation and variety to Siemens

At Siemens we value diversity as the inclusion and collaboration of different thinking, backgrounds, experiences, expertise and individual qualities across all organisational levels.

Introduction

Culture of acceptance and openness

The diversity of our employees and business partners fuels the ingenuity that has driven Siemens’ success in the region for over 145 years. In all of our activities, actions and programs, we want to make the most of the diversity in our workforce in Australia and New Zealand.

It is about enabling different ideas and approaches to thrive. It is about tapping the creative potential of all our employees to be as diverse as our customers and ultimately, the fabric of the societies we operate in. We establish an open work environment for all of our employees, regardless of cultural background, ethnicity, origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity, expression or characteristics.
