Where the Jobs Are: Siemens Celebrates and Actively Seeks Veterans to Join our Team

Mike Bokina, Vice President and Head of People & Organization, Siemens USA

At Siemens, one of the ways we transform the everyday is by building technology with purpose. And on this Veteran’s Day, we want to recognize the veteran employees and their spouses who are essential to our success.

 

We have long held a commitment to help veterans and their families succeed as they return to civilian work. That’s because we believe veterans possess exactly what’s needed in this moment. Not only do they have strong technical and leadership skills, but they know what it’s like to advance a mission bigger than themselves. And for those reasons and more, we really want them on our team.  

 

So, on this and every other day of the year, Siemens celebrates our veteran employees. We also want to highlight the programs and partnerships that help us connect veterans and their spouses to highly skilled job opportunities across our company and encourage veterans to take a closer look at Siemens.

 

We’ve partnered with talent acquisition programs like the Department of Defense’s  SkillBridge, an initiative that offers service members the opportunity to gain valuable civilian work experience through internships. While participating in SkillBridge, these service members receive military compensation and benefits, and Siemens provides training and work experience with the intention to them to full-time hires. 

We have long held a commitment to help veterans and their families succeed as they return to civilian work. That’s because we believe veterans possess exactly what’s needed in this moment. Not only do they have strong technical and leadership skills, but they know what it’s like to advance a mission bigger than themselves. And for those reasons and more, we really want them on our team.

We’re also partnering with veteran training programs like Training with Industry (TWI). Offered through the Army Acquisition Corps, TWI is a work-experience program designed to provide exposure to corporate managerial techniques and industrial procedures.

 

We also have a longstanding partnership with military recruitment firm, Orion Talent, to ensure hiring opportunities are made available to the military and veteran populations. Further, Siemens Mobility works with Hire Heroes USA, whose mission is to place military members, veterans and military spouses in new careers.

 

Additionally, we’re committed to veteran-owned businesses in our supply chain.  As members of the National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC),  we’re able to enhance our outreach and secure Service-Disabled and Veteran-Owned Businesses (SDVBOB) in our procurement opportunities. 

But we don’t only focus on hiring and business development, as we understand the importance of fostering the veteran community and culture. To recognize the value that our veterans bring to Siemens,  we developed the Siemens Veterans Network, an employee resource group for military veterans, active reservists, military spouses, partners, families and allies. 

 

At Siemens, we’re deeply committed to supporting and, more importantly, empowering veterans who are seeking employment. And we’re very proud to be recognized on the Employers  List of the 2021 Military Times Best for Vets and Forbes list of America's Best Employers for Veterans 2021.
