Top Workplaces 2011

San Jose Mercury News (USA) – 20/06/2011

SAP has been named among the Top Workplaces in the San Francisco Bay Area by the San Jose Mercury News. Success is measured in many ways, but the Top Work Places clearly view helping others and being active in their communities among their primary responsibilities. Some have taken their efforts global, others choose to support local renowned service and charitable organizations or have designed philanthropic programs which are closely linked to their business category or service. SAP Labs in Palo Alto recently hosted a “Volapalooza” on campus, where 14 community partners participated in a fair organized to showcase volunteer opportunities. More than 50 percent of Palo Alto-based employees participate in SAP-sponsored service activities throughout the year and have contributed 3,917 volunteer hours, according to the company, which was ranked seventh in the Top Work Places survey. Additionally, SAP Labs is a sponsor of local technology-inspired and community building events, including the Tech Challenge at the San Jose Tech Museum, Habitat for Humanity and a Rebuilding Together day. SAP Labs contributed funds to 16 local non-profit organizations in 2010. The company’s “micro volunteering” allows employees to volunteer short amounts of time while on the job and has a “month of service” each October when employees are encouraged to volunteer locally.
