SAP is proud to announce that Great Place to Work has named SAP ANZ as the third Best Workplace in Australia. This is the third year in a row that SAP has received a Great Place to Work award – progressing from ninth in 2018 to number seven last year, before reaching third in 2020.

Debbie Rigger, Head of HR, SAP Australia and New Zealand, said:

The recognition is a win for all of us at SAP, because every employee is responsible for building and maintaining our exceptional culture. More than ever, the health, happiness and wellbeing of employees across the country is under enormous pressure as a result of the pandemic, so it’s particularly rewarding to be recognised and to see our position increase.”

“I’m tremendously proud of the HR and GPTW teams at SAP who have kept our staff connected and supported through this year, with inventive and thoughtful programs from virtual workouts to ‘quarantunes’ playlists,” continued Ms Rigger.

Below are some of the initiatives which have helped to foster the awesome culture at SAP Australia.

Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive workforce

SAP’s Respect@SAP programme is all about reminding each employee that everyone plays a part in creating positive experiences, healthy relationships and an inclusive workplace.

Together, we can create a culture where people feel welcome, belonging and the ability to thrive. As an organisation, we are committed to providing a safe work environment for employees – one that is free from bullying, harassment and discrimination.

Each of our Great Place to Work teams across all our offices continually play a key part to keeping us all connected and engaged.  From virtual drinks with trivia to virtual kids and adult yoga to virtual bootcamps and a virtual bake-off, there is something for everyone.

 Our engagement with the community

Our collaboration with our social partners, including The Smith Family, The Australia Indigenous Education Foundation, The Graeme Dingle Foundation, and The Akina Foundation have all provided our employees opportunities to positively impact our communities through volunteering, mentoring, and operation support.

In 2019, our employees volunteered 4,529 hours of their time to purpose-led activities, and SAP impacted a total of 18,991 lives. This included training 11,577 youths, and delivering a phenomenal AUD$870,553 of in kind-contributions and funds raised. More than 139 customers and external parties participated in employee led events.

Creating an inclusive, strong and healthy culture is an ongoing commitment – a never-ending journey, not a destination. Winning an award that’s based on our employees lived experiences at SAP, validates the ongoing effort we have put into cultivating a workplace that lives and breathes our core values.

We believe a strong culture lays the foundation for a strong business. It’s our key to attract and retain the best employees, partner with the world’s leading brands, and drive change in our community.
