Equity Culture
Siemens wants to foster a vibrant equity culture at all levels of the company. Through a variety of share plans such as the Share Matching Program – one of the world’s largest employee share programs – Siemens employees can also become company owners. In addition, Siemens Profit Sharing was launched in 2015 to enable all employees below management level to participate in the company’s development. Share ownership is a key aspect of Siemens’ Ownership Culture, which aims to motivate every employee to act as if Siemens were his or her own company. Around 80 percent of Siemens’ global workforce currently holds shares in the company.
Employee equity programs pay off for both sides – for companies and employees. When employees own equity in the company they work for, they participate directly in its development and gain an opportunity to accumulate assets they can use, for example, to increase their retirement savings. By supporting the Berliner Appell (Berlin Appeal), for instance, Siemens is calling for better tax incentives to further encourage employee share ownership in Germany.
