Recruitment policy at Siemens Hong Kong is to find the best and brightest people in all markets and give them every opportunity to use their talents. A priority is to identify people for engineering, project management and consulting roles in different areas of the business, including industrial production, energy and health care.
"We call it 'people excellence' and it is the basis of our sustained success," says Elim Fan, head of human resources. "Our managers are strongly committed to talent acquisition. Ongoing transformation reflects our aspiration to create and maintain a first-class workforce worldwide."
Candidates for any position are expected to be open-minded, highly motivated and inquisitive. They should also want to put their knowledge and skills to work in a diverse environment that involves a lot of international contacts.
"You need curiosity and openness to think outside the box and come up with forward-looking ideas," Fan says. "That's how we answer the toughest questions of our time and ensure sustainable, profitable growth."
New hires get close attention from managers to help with induction, integration and training. This gives them a sound foundation and a better understanding of the corporate culture.
The company also puts great emphasis on technical and product training for engineers, specialists and experts.
"Innovation is our driving force," Fan says. "Our engineers have been developing pioneering technology and finding answers for more than 160 years."
