Siemens Leverages Indian Engineers and Managers Globally

Janina Kugel, head of human resources, people and leadership, and chief diversity officer of Siemens AG spoke to Mint on a recent visit to India, where Siemens employs 18,000 people at its 22 factories.

When asked about the context of her visit she said, “India is a very relevant market not only in terms of business but also in terms of talent. India is playing a major role in our business, in everything we are doing in digitization, in software, and also in terms of infrastructure…India is one of our top five countries in terms of people and growth. Indian talent is for us global talent. We have an increasing number of people of Indian origin who are in management positions worldwide.”

When asked about what changes she saw in the country since her visits 10 years ago, she said, “When you see the changes that are happening, they are dramatic. Of course, I don’t have to tell you how big India is. But when it comes to infrastructure, education, development of society, the topics that are addressed and discussed in the government, I see a very steady growth.”
