Recently I wrote on this blog that Forbes had named Siemens one of America’s ‘Best Employers’ for the fourth year in a row. I’m proud to share in this post our latest recognition as a top employer: Siemens now ranks on Forbes’ first-ever compilation of America’s Best Employers by State.
Siemens appears on Forbes’ list as a top employer in five states: New York, Florida, Iowa, Massachusetts and Texas. These states are home to more than 16,000 of the 50,000 employees Siemens has across the United States in all 50 states and territories.
I’m not surprised that we received this ranking. My 12 years with Siemens have enabled me to experience our company and employees in sites all across the nation. Coast-to-coast, our people are making real what matters, using Siemens technology to improve the states and communities where they live.
In New York, for example, Siemens technology has been behind the scenes for more than a century. More than 3,500 Siemens employees today work alongside 1,600 local businesses providing solutions that communities and iconic sites depend on – from Carnegie Hall to the 9/11 Memorial Fountains and Statue of Liberty.
In Florida, home to Siemens’ global energy hub, Siemens is integral to Orlando’s smart city vision. We also are keeping people connected through providing the only privately owned, operated and maintained passenger rail system in the United States, Brightline, that services Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando.
In Massachusetts, Siemens invested $300 million in a laboratory diagnostics facility in Walpole, where more than 700 people work in manufacturing and do high-tech R&D. In Boston, where Siemens recently acquired Mendix, a low-code platform provider, the company has more than 2,000 employees specializing in infrastructure, healthcare and software.
What’s special about this designation is its methodology: 50,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees were asked how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. In a day and age when Americans trust recommendations from friends and family over any other source of information, this speaks volumes.
Siemens has long been known for our experience, our expertise, our innovation and our ingenuity. Yet it’s our people and culture that serve as our true differentiators. We’ve built a workforce that empowers managers and encourages ownership at all levels. We pride ourselves on our ability to listen to our customers, create digital solutions and use data and the power of our collective teams to drive us forward.
Come explore where we work to better society and meet America’s greatest challenges in the fields of infrastructure, energy, mobility, industrial modernization and medical
