Skills for Africawill train workers initially in South Africa, Angola, Nigeria, Kenya, and Senegal supported by 56 partners to help cover the vast region. Announced during co-CEO Jim Hagemann Snabe’s recent trip to Johannesburg, the hybrid classroom and e-learning approach takes into account that internet access isn’t a given, and focuses on key industries including public and financial sectors, utilities, and oil and gas. Students receive training kits with printed course materials and on an encrypted USB in English, French, and Portuguese.
SAP’s long-time commitment to sustainable business also encompasses volunteers who teach science, technology, engineering, math, and entrepreneurship in schools. In addition, SAP trains unemployed people in Spain, Germany, Switzerland, and BeLux. In 2012, 16,800 workers were trained and 73 percent found a job immediately. To pay off on the promise of innovation, the IT industry at-large needs even more programs like these. Job creation is only one part of the puzzle. Skilled workers complete it.
