TORONTO, Canada – 07 Nov, 2016 – SAP Canada has been selected as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the third consecutive year in the 2017 edition of Mediacorp’s Canadian business survey.
A competition to determine which employers lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees, Canada’s Top 100 Employers uses eight criteria to make its selections, related to the workplace, employee benefits and development opportunities, and community involvement.
These are some of the reasons Canada’s 100 Top Employers gave for SAP Canada’s 2017 inclusion:
- SAP Canada invests in employees’ ongoing education through generous tuition subsidies. It also offers high potential employees the chance to participate in the unique SAP Social Sabbatical program, which provides employees with the opportunity to work with an international team of employees to solve business challenges for startups (typically in the not-for-profit sector in developing countries).
- An industry leader, SAP Canada starts new employees with 3 weeks of paid vacation, moving to 4 weeks after only 3 years of employment.
- SAP Canada created the “Volunteer Ambassador” program to help manage employee volunteer and charitable efforts in the community — the company provides one volunteer day off each year and encourages employee giving with matching charitable donations (up to $250 annually).
Agi Garaba, Head of HR, SAP Canada, said: “We believe coming to work should be a meaningful, rewarding and fun experience. The innovative programs we run at SAP Canada are a big part of this, and we also value a workplace that inspires employees to achieve their dreams, step up with ideas that make a difference, and truly enjoy what they are doing each day.”
Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario and operating in the Canadian market since 1989, SAP Canada serves over 2,300 customers and employs over 2,800 across Canada. The company has development labs in Montreal, Toronto, Waterloo and Vancouver.
