To enable employees to share Siemens’ success and thus foster their loyalty to the company – that’s the aim of employee ownership and a key part of Siemens’ corporate culture today. Behind this approach is the conviction that employees who are owners of their company will identify with it more strongly. The history of employee participation at Siemens goes back a long way: 70 years ago Siemens re-introduced profit sharing – a precursor to today’s employee share plans.
The history of the world’s fairs mirrors the development of industrial-technological civilization. As a global powerhouse in electrical engineering, Siemens has been participating regularly in these exhibitions of superlatives ever since 1851. On the occasion of the "Expo 2020" in Dubai, which, due to the pandemic, runs from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022, the Siemens Historical Institute has compiled interesting stories and impressive pictures on Siemens’ most important world’s fair exhibits.
Sustainability – one of the key concepts of Siemens AG’s corporate identity today. Yet Siemens initiated its corporate policy of responsibility toward the population and environment 50 years ago by establishing an environmental protection department. Some 25 years later, the company presented its very first Environmental Report – the forerunner of today’s Sustainability Reports.
