Africa is an extremely diverse continent. Consisting of 53 countries, it’s the most multilingual continent in the world with approximately 2.000 languages and dialects being spoken. Siemens celebrates this diversity as a prerequisite to sustainable success – African diversity matches our own commitment to becoming a company as diverse as the world in which we operate in order to tap the power of this diversity for maximum advantage.
The combined talents of the Siemens employees on the African continent represent an infinite range of possibilities. Women and men from a wide range of backgrounds working throughout the company developing solutions to meet our customer’s needs and answering the most pressing issues facing Africa today. Research demonstrates that diverse workplaces are happier and more interesting. Diverse companies find it easier to attract people, job satisfaction is enhanced, and diverse teams are more productive and creative. For a company like Siemens that depends on innovation, it must do all it can to nurture this innovation power. This was the thinking behind Siemens’ Managing Board’s decision to launch the Siemens Diversity Initiative.
As an integrated technology company, Siemens will continue to use the creative potential of our talented employees to ensure that our diversity gives us a competitive advantage thereby helping create a sustainable future for our company, customers and society as a whole.
