Make an Impact and Make it Count.

 At SAP, we are always looking for ways to do our part and make people’s lives better. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) focuses on three main areas: 


  1. Volunteering
  2. Scaling Social Enterprises
  3. Education & Workforce development

 

From our annual volunteer events, to individual hands-on help or business coaching and support, SAP employees contribute their time and talents in a variety of ways to support social organizations in their communities and globally.

 

We support the accelerated growth of social enterprises that approach the world’s most pressing societal challenges with innovative business models. We offer pro bono volunteering programs, enterprise technology solutions, and financial support for social and entrepreneurial enterprises in mature and emerging markets.

 

As SAP, we know that the fundamental means for people to fulfill their potential is through education. That’s why we proudly support innovative educational initiatives that help young people pursue science, IT or entrepreneurial careers, even providing free education and employment opportunities in developing regions such as Africa and Brazil.

 

Additionally, every October, SAP embarks on its signature corporate volunteer initiative – Month of Service – where you’ll have the chance to use your personal and professional skills for your community’s needs.

    I have been working at SAP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A community of like-minded talented people who bring their best-selves to work everyday with a daily mission to be better than we were yesterday. Always being made to feel valued, heard and part of something exciting! I'm definitely a lifer!

    Cons

    It's hard to think of any - the fact that I've gained a few stone since starting probably is the main one; lot's of socialising, lunch and learns and cakes generally being floated about has had a detrimental impact on my waistline!
    In all seriousness we work very hard, but play harder - working for SAP isn't a role you should enter into if you aren't an all or nothing person. It's not easy but it's worth it!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employee engagement/feedback surveys - these are highlighting things we can do better and always positive to see changes being made as a result.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at SAP (London, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    The company was going through ridiculous internal changes all the time while I was interviewing. I went through the interview process successfully just to be told that the position no longer exists, because of internal reorganisations. I had to reapply for a different position and go through the process again with massive delays in the hiring process. Interviews were long and exhausting. Recruitment staff was nice and professional though.
