Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics, a division of global pharmaceutical giant Siemens, made three large acquisitions in 2007 that required internal restructuring. As the pharmaceutical field became more competitive and regulations increased, it became much harder for the staff to keep up with its products, and training was taking up more time than it should.

Optimas logo 2014Because Siemens employs more than 14,000 in 120 countries, it needed to standardize its educational process to increase operational efficiencies. In 2011, Siemens launched its personalized education plan to keep up with evolving technology for imaging, diagnostics and health care information technology.

Results in 2014 show strong customer satisfaction (an average of 9.03 out of 10) and more than 4,000 global completions in two years.

For its efforts in standardizing learning in all of its global locations, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics is the winner of the silver 2014 Optimas Award for Global Outlook.
