SAP is proud to announce we have been recognized as a “2018 Global Top Employer” by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee working conditions in 22 countries, 4 regions, and Global Headquarters. Last night, SAP was called on stage to accept the certification and trophy at the Amsterdam Passenger Terminal by representatives from HR, Talent Acquisition, and Employer Branding.

SAP has been awarded the highly prestigious “2018 Global Top Employer” certification in: Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States. Furthermore, the company has also been certified as a regional Top Employer in Europe, The Middle East, North America, and Asia Pacific.

The annual, international research undertaken by the Top Employers Institute recognizes leading employers around the world that provide exceptional employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organization, and strive to continuously advance best-in-class employment practices. Crucial to the Top Employers procedure is that participating companies must complete a stringent research process and meet the required high standard across multiple continents and countries. The Top Employers Institute evaluated SAP’s employee offerings on the criteria of talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits, and company culture. The bar for a successful pass rate also increases every year, thus forcing companies to take each year’s certification process just as seriously as the previous year’s. As such, only the world’s leading employers become certified as Top Employers.

SAP has been actively working towards obtaining the global certification for the past few years. In 2013, only a few select SAP locations were participating in the certification process with the Top Employers Institute. Thanks to the cross-border collaboration, constant dedication to improve processes, annual feedback sessions and benchmark reports, as well as satisfaction from employees, more SAP locations saw the value of participating and began to undergo the certification themselves.

“Being certified is a great recognition for HR who play a major role in creating our company culture and also an opportunity for SAP to reach out to qualified talent. This recognition also enables us to measure us against other companies in the market and excel ourselves every year. Furthermore, we have created a prouder and more engaged employee population who talk about these great recognitions increasing their own personal brand and becoming natural brand ambassadors of SAP”.

-Hande Genc, HR Director, SAP Turkey

To further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning this research has verified SAP’s outstanding employee conditions and earned us a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Top Employers. This year, from more than 1,300 organizations around the world, only 13 organizations have been certified as a Top Employer Global 2018.

    Congrats to SAP HR recognition!   SAP is certainly a leader in the industry!

    As a successful domain expert in downstream O&G with limited hands-on SAP expertise, it has been difficult to find a path to contribute-

    SAP will remain the backbone of this industry. I would like to find a path to contribute-
