We know that having greater inter-cultural understanding and sensitivity is critical to success in today’s global economy. At SAP we have a community of employees, partners and customers with a broad variety of nationalities, religions, backgrounds and many other distinct aspects of life.
To create and maintain an inclusive environment, SAP promotes a specific Cultural Intelligence module within the company’s own Diversity & Inclusion Learning Program.
The availability of cultural intelligence tools and support to Cultures@SAP (SAP’s Employee Network Group with the aim of encouraging all SAP employees worldwide to promote a sense of inclusiveness and multicultural understanding) drive our employees to the path of success.
Moreover, SAP has played a leading role in the ongoing refugee crisis. In 2016, as part of the “Engaging for Refugees” initiative, we hired 105 interns in various locations throughout Germany and brought on 15 students for dual-study positions that were specifically created for refugees. SAP also has organized events such as Refugee Code Week in countries like Jordan and Lebanon in cooperation with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
