Siemens Honored by Department of Defense Agency for Supporting Massachusetts Guardsman
Date:5/23/2011

NORWOOD, Mass., May, 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Norwood, Massachusetts facility of Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics (NYSE: SI) was honored today with a 'Patriot Award' and an 'Above and Beyond Award' from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense agency. Both recognitions stem from a nomination submitted by a Norwood employee returning to work following a year-long deployment to Europe with the U.S. Navy, where she worked as a laboratory technician to help treat soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen injured in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Patriot Awards go to employers who practice leadership and implement personnel policies that support employee participation in the U.S. National Guard and Reserve. Given in more limited quantities, Above and Beyond Awards are then given to those companies who also go above and beyond the legal requirements for granting leave and providing support for military duty by their employees.(1)

For Siemens employee and mother-of-two, Michele McKeon, this support included being allowed a flexible work schedule that enabled her to pursue training as a Chief Petty Officer upon return from deployment, as well as rejoin Siemens full time as a technical support specialist for hematology and urinalysis systems in the company's Technical Solutions Center. McKeon acknowledges that she struggled to readjust to civilian life, but was encouraged to seek counseling and outside help by her Siemens supervisors, who also fully supported her throughout the process.

"I cannot say enough about Siemens," said McKeon, who served in the U.S. Army for 12 years before joining the Navy. "They have supported me through a year-long deployment with packages and videos and when I came home, they welcomed me with open arms. Their dedication to me and my family
