Siemens takes our role within our communities very seriously. To help ensure a sound environment for our business, we assume social responsibility as part of our activities. We are aware that our factories and offices have an impact on their communities and we activity work with these local groups to understand how we can support their needs.
We focus our corporate citizenship activities in three areas:
All employees are encouraged and supported through their local businesses to do voluntary work in the community – with charities, schools and environmental groups. Funding is also made available to support local groups.
Education & Skills
The UK is great at engineering but there is a problem; there aren't enough young people studying and becoming engineers. The EngineeringUK Report 2015 projects that the UK needs 1.82 million more people with engineering skills from 2012-2022.
By supporting organisations that reach out and nurture the innate curiosity in young people, Siemens hopes to influence five million children over the life of the project.
The project is underpinned by an extensive education programme providing free, stimulating and unique STEM-related resources that bring STEM education to life.

Health & Wellbeing
Siemens' success hinges on its employees and their wellbeing, which is why we define health as more than just the absence of illness. For Siemens, health is a positive concept. We improve our employees' physical, mental and social wellbeing and promote their personal health resources/potentials.
At Siemens health management is based on a dual principle:

Three defining principles govern our efforts in this area:
