SAP Canada tops Glassdoor Best Places to Work in 2018 list

TORONTO, Canada – Dec. 6, 2017 – SAP Canada, a subsidiary of SAP SE (NYSE: SAP), has been recognized as the best place to work in Canada in Glassdoor’s list of Best Places to Work in 2018. The company jumps from 10th place in 2017 to 1st in 2018, with its average employee rating rising from 4.2/5 to 4.5/5.

This year and for the first time in Glassdoor’s 10-year history, SAP is one of two companies to appear on all five of its employee-voted Best Places to Work lists in Canada, US, UK, Germany and France.

On Glassdoor, current and former employees of companies worldwide share insights and opinions about their work environments by posting reviews. Employees rate their satisfaction with the company overall, as well as key workplace factors including career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, and culture and values.

The Best Places to Work are determined using reviews shared by Canada-based employees between November 1, 2016 and October 22, 2017. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, which considers quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.

Agi Garaba, head of HR, SAP Canada, said: “Our employees are extremely proud to work at SAP Canada and it’s their passion and commitment that make it the country’s best place to work. There is a high level of engagement and togetherness right across Canada; we’re inspiring each other to do great work and find purpose in what we do every day.”
