Europeans@Siemens complete training

"The pilot project European@Siemens has enormously expanded our international training activities. I'm very pleased that the first participants have successfully completed their training and that all have already received job offers from Siemens in their home countries. We can thus offer good prospects, in particular, to young people from regions with high unemployment," said Janina Kugel, Labor Director and Chief Human Resources Officer of Siemens AG.
The program's work-study concept is based on alternating practical and academic phases. The young Europeans must write all their examinations in German. Therefore, they start their training with a six-week intensive German course. During the training program, they are also sent for two months to the Siemens Regional Companies in their home countries to enable them to make contacts for starting their future careers.
The Europeans@Siemens project, which was launched on August 1, 2012 in Berlin, has attracted great interest. Applicants come from all around the world, and in fiscal 2016, two trainees from Turkey and two from Egypt joined the project for the first time. After qualifying, the trainees – currently more than 100 young people from 19 countries – return to their home countries. The investment per trainee is just under €200,000.
In fiscal 2015, Siemens invested around €190 million in Germany and €242 million worldwide in the training of young people.
