Votes were based on personal experience, discussions with others and public information, according to the Siemens PLM release.
“Readers have spoken and Siemens PLM Software has been recognized as a 2012 Best Diversity Company, for its support of minorities and women, attention to work/life balance and commitment to diversity,” said Roberta Renard, CEO and publisher of "Diversity/Careers" magazine, in the release.
