What you should know

For SAP, innovation is more than developing software – it's developing breakthrough technologies and best practices that help the world run better and improve people’s lives.

Talent is nurtured at SAP. The company knows its employees can achieve almost anything with the right mindset, support and opportunities to develop their talents and enhance their personal and professional growth. Its strategy is to advance a culture of learning that enables employees to build stronger connections between their learning and their success.

One example of this philosophy is their Talent on Demand online platform that empowers employees by enabling them to identify significant business opportunities or challenges, and offering to serve as a member of a part-time, temporary, virtual team to provide input, recommendations, and solutions. Employees can apply for and contribute to business projects coming directly from all different levels, across all of SAP’s Board Areas. Talent on Demand creates a unique opportunity for learners to network with peers, stretch themselves, and contribute to SAP’s overall success.

Another great example is Social Sabbatical, a unique, four-week assignment for SAP’s key talents who work in highly diverse, international teams to solve business challenges for the entrepreneurial sector in emerging markets, while strengthening their leadership competencies, cross industry sector know-how and intercultural sensitivity. Employees apply for assignments in designated global locations, and are selected based on skills, the team’s requirements, and the fit in terms of interests and client needs. A participant’s pre-work ensures they learn about local customs, culture, language, project goals, and information on their destination country beforehand. These cross-functional and multi-national teams build capacity for non-profit organization, government agency or educational institutions focused on entrepreneurship, and the small-to-medium business sector.
