Siemens wins prize for outstanding inclusion of employees with disabilities

"A disability and a career are not mutually exclusive. That's why it's a priority for us to recognize our employees' individual strengths. It's a win-win situation," stated Janina Kugel, Chief Human Resources Officer and member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG.
At Siemens, inclusion is an integral part of the corporate culture and diversity strategy, from inclusive, future-oriented apprenticeship programs to the forward-looking design of accessible workplaces, in particular, with a view to digitalization and the rapidly evolving world of work.
The integration agreement that was put in place by the company management, its Central Works Council and the central representative council for the disabled in 2009 already set high standards: jobs, qualifications and training programs were redesigned to accommodate employees with impairments. With the new inclusion agreement of January 2018, digitization has now assumed a key role in the drive to create an inclusive and accessible work environment. Apps, assistance systems and robotics as well as modern software and hardware offer new possibilities for the inclusion of people with disabilities.
