How Siemens Energy energizes society.

Siemens Energy is driven by our purpose: “we energize society”.

Why women love working at Siemens Energy.

What’s one thing Siemens Energy does that is particularly unique or unexpected?  

Siemens Energy puts great emphasis on how we as a company deliver, and our greatest emphasis is on our people. Our people and culture — our “how” — will be the differentiator with our customers, investors, suppliers, partners, employees and society. 

Leading the energy transition from the people perspective means leveraging our strengths and further enhancing our “People & Culture” foundation by using our three main building blocks:

  1. A vibrant workforce.

    • Our ambition is to become the employer of choice in the Energy industry. We do this by investing in employer branding, learning and development, strategic workforce planning and a recognition and performance management system. 

  2. A thriving environment.

    • We are creating an environment for people to be self-directed, to have responsibility and find meaning in their work. We guide this by setting standards through our Inclusion and Diversity Framework, applying new ways of working and establishing cross-organizational community networks.

  3. Our game-changing leaders.

    • Leaders navigate through changing situations by providing clarity and direction in uncertain conditions. They bring new strategies, new mindsets and business transformation to life, which are triggered by outside market changes and remodeling our Leadership Essentials.

5 employee benefits that positively impact women who work at Siemens Energy (U.S. Specific). 

  1. Fully company paid short-term disability, which provides paid time off in the event of pregnancy or disability.

  2. Fully company paid long-term disability.

  3. Paid parental leave, which allows for six paid weeks of leave for birth, adoption or foster care placement.

  4. Competitive health benefits, including: Free yearly medical/dental exams; $10 yearly eye exams (the Company pays 100% for the vision plan); $150 Wellness credits for the yearly medical exams and $50 Wellness credits for the yearly eye exams.

  5. Remote work options. Under our #BetterTogether framework, Siemens Energy provides for a flexible working environment through mutual agreement with their teams, and turns offices into vibrant collaboration centers, which are key destinations to interact, collaborate, interact and build relationships.

What career development opportunities can job seekers expect at Siemens Energy?

Our performance management approach, “My Performance,” puts our employees in the driving seat of managing not only their performance, but their career. Employees set their own goals, and they will have access to feedback and coaching conversations when they need them, making self-development easier. My Performance not only makes performance management simpler, more effective and beneficial, but it also drives development. 

Employees are empowered to drive their careers via useful tools such as coaching opportunities (with our Grow2Glow network), mentoring, job shadowing, job tagging and formal learning opportunities via our SE Learning Platform, which offers opportunities ranging from self-paced webinars to instructor-led virtual and in-person classes. 

Siemens Energy also puts great emphasis on the development of women, especially when it comes to women leadership development. As part of this, Siemens Energy has ambitious I&D goals of increasing the percentage of women in leadership to 25% by 2025 and to 30% by 2030. 

Siemens Energy’s internal women’s leadership pipeline program, Catalysta, is a global 12-month program that is designed for women leaders driving the (energy) transformation and who are eager to expand their network and accelerate their career.

In addition, Siemens Energy offers opportunities to further engage and network with women within our WIN@SE group, an employee resource group for women, which also provides a structured mentorship program. To ensure networking opportunities for our women talents internally and externally, and to further foster career development and career acceleration, we leverage our year-long partnership with Women Unlimited Inc.

What else should women know about pursuing a career here? 

The energy market is changing in an unprecedented way. Through our transformation strategy, we are gradually shifting our business to meet demands differently in a way that will serve us in the longer term. We are finding a more sustainable balance between traditional core and decarbonized energy and pushing growth in distributed power generation.

If we’re to shift our business in this way, we also need to shift the skills and competencies we all bring to our work. The skills that served us so well in the past are not the same skills that will serve us well in the future. 

For this reason, we developed our FutureFit framework, which focuses on our future roles and capabilities. We provide a wide range of tools and resources to employees as well as encourage professional development discussions with managers on a continuous basis.

Additionally, career opportunities with full-time roles or temporary projects are open to stretch and develop talent. Siemens Energy is also dedicated to equal opportunity and transparency and therefore is committed to have all job openings, whether they are internal or external, posted.
