SAP Labs Canada Leads the Way by Investing in Early Talent

By Kerstin Butzelaar

In Canada we have always had a forward thinking approach to investing in students through innovative, inclusive programs. We have made leaps in creating programs and initiatives that foster growth for early talent members at all stages of their education path. Most recently, SAP Canada was recognized for this commitment by being named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People 2014.

We would like to take a moment to highlight our two key programs that aim to grow and develop early talent at various education levels.

In Canada the number of IT professionals grew from 650,000 to 800,000 but the number of women in IT did not see the same growth. Find out how we are working with girls in grade seven to boost female participation in IT related fields.

How do you motivate high school students to gain financial responsibility, make confident decisions and become innovators? Read more on how SAP Canada Toronto Labs found the answer by partnering with Junior Achievement JACO chapter.

      Hi Joseph,

      We decided to highlight two main programs, GIRLsmarts4tech and the Junior Achievement program.

      SAP Canada Waterloo Labs is a strong supporter of Nutrition for Learning, a registered charity dedicated to helping kids learn by ensuring that they attend school well nourished. Each month, we help pack snacks for the kids, as well as run charity fundraising drives.  Every fall, there is also a campaign to donate school supplies.  I'm proud to be a part of a company that gives so much back to the community.

      Good Stuff Joseph,  I know it is impossible to add all the things we do for our communities on a regular basis and showcase all of them.  in no way does that diminish your efforts or your team efforts in fact sometimes we do things because we feel it is important and we know and see the impact of our efforts not on a corporate website but in the eyes of those that are on the receiving end of what you have given.

      hats of to you and the team working on "Nutrition for Learning"

      It is so good to see these involvements in shaping future generations of leaders and thinkers by stepping up to plate and showing these young adults that it really does pay to pursue your dreams and to focus on your goals.

      Way to go  SAP Canada for contributing to these wonderful initiatives.
