PALO ALTO  SAP today announced that SAP in Silicon Valley has been named a “Bay Area Top Workplace” for 2013. This distinction was presented by the Bay Area News Group, a collective of publications that includes the San Jose Mercury News, Oakland Tribune and Contra Costa Times. With a strong and growing presence in Silicon Valley – with more than 3,500 employees in office locations in Palo Alto, Dublin, Sunnyvale and South San Francisco – SAP is one of a select group of large companies located in the Bay Area to receive the distinction.

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. Employees commended SAP for its strong vision, clear strategy, consistent execution and focus on innovation. Survey results also revealed employees believe they are a part of something meaningful and feel genuinely appreciated and valued for the work they do.

“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. “At SAP in Silicon Valley, we aim to inspire innovation – in the solutions we build, in how we work with our customers, in how we collaborate with our partners, and in how we engage with our local community. This distinction is a reflection of our talented and dedicated workforce and the innovation they bring to life every day. We take great pride in this recognition and are committed more than ever to providing an outstanding workplace for our employees in Silicon Valley.”
