Siemens India has announced an array of measures to support communities and its employees and their families in the relief efforts against COVID-19.

In April last year, the company pledged a total contribution of Rs 20 crore towards its efforts against Covid-19. Following the second wave of Covid-19, it has announced an additional contribution of Rs 20 crore, taking the total contribution to Rs 40 crore.

Interventions range from providing government hospitals across the country with Covid-19 testing lab, state-of-the-art computer tomography scanner, testing kits, ventilators, oxygen concentrators, oxygen generators, medical supplies and gear. The company also provided migrant and daily wage workers with dry rations and hygiene kits. These efforts have been supported by the Siemens Caring Hands Foundation in Germany.  

To support families of employees, who have lost their lives to Covid-19, Siemens announced a lumpsum financial assistance of Rs 25 lakh in addition to one year’s salary of the employee. Furthermore, support towards school fees and continued medical insurance for immediate family members will be given.

Siemens will grant supplemental leave for colleagues recovering from Covid-19 and additional 10 days Wellness Leave for every employee.

The above measures are in addition to Siemens’ commitment to facilitate vaccinations for all employees and their families.

“In these difficult and exceptional circumstances, the community and our employees need concrete measures for their well-being. We will continue to support every employee and their family at this very difficult time. The organization is doing everything possible to ensure that every employee feels safe and cared for,” said Sunil Mathur, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Siemens Ltd.
