Siemens honors our U.S. military veterans for dedication and service
As brave men and women leave military service and return to civilian life, the extensive technical training and experience they have gained make them uniquely qualified for jobs in a variety of industries around the world.
At Siemens, we know from experience that our veterans are among the most dedicated, disciplined and best trained workers our nation has to offer. The skills our veterans possess translate into a range of roles from corporate leadership to field service and manufacturing. Across the U.S., we currently have more than 3,500 veterans working at Siemens. For example, we recently opened a new state-of-the-art wind service training center in Florida where nearly 25% of the employees are U.S. military veterans.
Siemens is also an active participant in national programs which help veterans transition back into civilian life, including:
Joining Forces –
Since signing on to Joining Forces, a national initiative launched in April 2011 by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden to support and honor America’s service members and their families, we’ve more than tripled our initial commitment, and have hired more than 1,200 veterans.
PLM Training –
In addition to recruitment, Siemens is offering up to $17,000 in free job training for veterans with an engineering and manufacturing background. Offered in 22 U.S. cities by Siemens’ PLM (product lifecycle management software), the program provides training on computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) technology. The training will help enhance veterans’ qualifications for positions in a variety of manufacturing industries worldwide, including automotive, aerospace, energy, high-tech electronics, and machinery.
Our commitment to veterans has never been stronger, and we’re proud to do our part supporting initiatives like HIRING AMERICA and Joining Forces.
