NEWTOWN SQUARE — SAP America, Inc., a subsidiary of SAP, today announced it has been named to several “top workplace” lists and recognized by various organizations for its commitment as an employer of choice.

“SAP is committed to creating an environment that breeds success, not only for the growth of our company, but for the growth of our employees and their careers,” said Geraldine McBride, president, SAP North America. “In the end, being a top workplace is all about having fun, doing meaningful work and making our customers happy.
