Siemens Mobility Limited has achieved the Mayor of London’s Good Work Standard, reflecting the many ways in which the organisation is striving for the best possible working conditions for its employees.
The Mayor of London launched his Good Work Standard in 2019 as part of his commitment to making London the best city in the world to work. It sets the benchmark for the best employment standards and helps employers contribute to a fairer and more inclusive London economy. This means an economy that works for all Londoners and means more Londoners can access good jobs.
Commenting on the award, William Wilson, CEO of Siemens Mobility Limited, said: “We employ some 600 people in and around the capital, a significant proportion of our 4000 Siemens Mobility employees UK-wide.
“Siemens technology sees trains run efficiently into and around London every day; the city’s road network managed safely; and, emissions lowered across the capital, but none of this is possible without the very best people. Signing up to the Mayor’s Good Work Standard shows that we are committed to being a healthy, fair and inclusive workplace – an important step in attracting and retaining diverse, talented and successful people. Effectively one of the best employers around!”
The Good Work Standard recognises best practice across four pillars; fair pay and conditions, workplace well-being, skills and progression and diversity and recruitment.
To make this happen, the Mayor is working with businesses like Siemens Mobility to celebrate excellent work practices and assist businesses in adopting best practice approaches by bringing together a range of support and resources. Accredited employers currently cover retail, care, finance, banking, local government, media, the culture and creative industries, charities and more.
