SAP Canada named one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures for 2017

TORONTO, Canada – Nov. 23, 2017 – SAP Canada, a subsidiary of SAP SE (NYSE: SAP), has been recognized for the first time as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures for 2017 by Waterstone Human Capital.

The national program, now in its 14th year, annually recognizes forty Canadian organizations for having cultures that enhance performance and help sustain a competitive advantage. SAP Canada was named among ten companies in the Enterprise category. Waterstone Human Capital is an executive search firm specializing in recruiting for fit and cultural talent management for organizations across North America.

The award is based on six categories: vision and leadership, recruitment and hiring for fit, cultural alignment and measurement, retention, rewards and recognition, organizational performance and corporate social responsibility.

Agi Garaba, head of HR, SAP Canada, said: “Culture is the cornerstone of SAP Canada’s success. People love working here because we provide them with opportunities for growth, inclusive, challenging workplaces, and the platform to find purpose and pleasure in their work. Our culture is about diverse and like-minded thinkers learning from and enjoying working with each other, and grassroots employee networks that encourage taking risks, trying new things and meeting new people.”

This latest award takes SAP Canada’s tally of top employer accolades for 2017 to eight. Earlier in November, the company was recognized as a 2018 Aon Best Employer in Canada and, for the fourth consecutive year, included in Mediacorp’s 2018 Canada’s Top 100 Employers list. In October, SAP Canada was named a Best Workplace in Technology and Best Workplace for Millennials by Great Place to Work, and in the same month received Parity Certification from Women in Governance. February saw the company certified as top a Canadian employer by Top Employers Institute, and in January it became one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for Young People by Mediacorp.
