PALO ALTO — SAP today announced that SAP in Silicon Valley, California, has been named a “Bay Area Top Workplace” for 2012. This distinction was presented by the Bay Area News Group, a collective of publications that includes the San Jose Mercury News and the Oakland Tribune.

The award is based on the results of a survey conducted among employees and designed to measure satisfaction across different aspects of working at SAP. Respondents answered questions across several categories, including pay and benefits, direction, management, career mobility, workplace conditions and execution. The company received especially high marks for compensation and workplace conditions.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the ‘Top Workplaces’ in the Bay Area,” said Barbara Holzapfel, senior vice president and managing director, SAP Labs North America. “This distinction is a reflection of our talented and dedicated workforce and the hard work they put in each and every day to bring innovation to our customers, our partners and our community. We take great pride in this recognition, and we are committed more than ever to providing an outstanding workplace for our employees in Silicon Valley.”
