Siemens is a technology leader that has stood for engineering excellence, innovation, quality, reliability and internationality for more than 165 years. Employing more than 50,000 in the United States, Siemens takes great pride in its diversity in all its forms and is deeply committed to respecting and protecting the equal rights of all of our employees, including our LGBT colleagues. Accordingly, Siemens has stated our support for non-discrimination ordinances and our opposition to efforts designed to discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
Our company reflects all the communities we serve and the many people with whom we do business. Having a workforce drawn from all segments of society is both the right thing to do and a core part of our business strategy. It is inextricably linked to our productivity, product quality, revenue, and commercial success. Our goal is to create value on a daily basis for customers and society and the diversity of our employees is one of our greatest assets in achieving this goal.
Our hiring and employment policies provide equal opportunity to all employees and prospective employees without regard to race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family responsibilities, pregnancy, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, and protected veteran or military status. Dependents eligible for coverage under the Siemens Flexible Benefits Program include spouses, domestic partners, state-registered partners and civil union partners. Furthermore, our Diversity and Inclusion Council is comprised of 29 distinct employee resource groups, supported by 10,000+ members in 122 active chapters throughout Siemens in the United States. This is part of our Diversity@Siemens initiative, which provides leadership opportunities, mentoring, professional development programs, and a supportive, inclusive working environment.
Siemens supports efforts at the state and local level to enshrine diversity as a core value. This furthers reinforces our belief that diversity and inclusion are critical to establishing and sustaining the competitive workforce required to maintain leadership in the global marketplace and creating an environment where people from all walks of life can feel good about developing a life-long career in a community that values their contributions.
