„We live in a world where the interaction between people and technology is closer than ever before. Our role, as a solution provider, is to facilitate this interaction, so that technology is able to transform the everyday and adds quality to life, from transportation to production, to health and the spaces in which we live and work. And the biggest challenge is to achieve these goals in a sustainable way, with responsibility for the environment and the society.” – Daniel Barciuc, CEO of Siemens Romania.
In this regard, Siemens is following four strategic priorities. First and foremost, the impact on customers: we anticipate what our customers need before they even know they need it. We also stimulate progress by empowering our customers, partners and employees. We build a growth mindset and, rather than make yesterday last, we are committed to building tomorrow – by learning and being open to change. And finally, we create technology with a purpose, which has been at the core of Siemens for more than 170 years and will remain at the center core of the future we’re building.
Innovation is the basis for our success, as a result of constant and considerable investment in research and development. For example, in fiscal year 2021, a budget of 4.9 billion euros was allocated and 42,500 employees were involved in this type of activity.
“A new area in which it is essential to be innovative is sustainability, both at the operational level and especially at the level of solutions available to our customers: from energy efficient technologies to software and models that rethink each stage of production or business processes.” added Daniel Barciuc.
