People First Culture!

Focusing on the overall development of the employees vis-a-vis performance evaluation is one of the important mantras at Siemens Healthineers. Eliminating conventional rating linked promotions for individuals, the organization links career progression as well as role change to the value a role creates for the organization. Any lateral and vertical movements of employees is no longer linked to the tenure or other parameters but to the value individuals create, thus resulting in employees taking ownership of their own development. Global role positioning also enables individuals to come forth and nominate themselves for higher roles and responsibilities.

The employees are encouraged to take ownership, learn continuously, have fun at work and contribute to the team, the organization, and the society.

‘We Care’ is another initiative that revolves around overall wellbeing and safety of people, especially during COVID-19 pandemic. Right from vaccination support (including dependents), policy upgrades, establishing a war room with volunteers from the organization across India, learning and development to mental wellbeing of people. Such people-centric initiatives ensure they feel cared and supported by the organization during these challenging times.

Every year, more than 4,000 organizations in India are accessed and over 850 are certified as Great Workplaces. The Great Place to Work institute ranks Best Workplaces solely based on Employee Feedback and quality of People Practices in an organization.
