1,881 views

Published on

Run with Purpose is an employee engagement campaign where SAP employees talk about how their personal inspiration ties to a bigger vision, to see how what we do each day matters -- not just to us individually, but to SAP, the people we work with, and the broader world. It's the deeper reason we come to work each day.

SAP Run with Purpose- What People May Not Realize About SAP

  1. 1. © 2014 SAP AG or an SAP affiliate company. All rights reserved. Run with Purpose Behind what we do each day – the emails, coding, releases, sales, and solving of problems big and small – what connects us with the world? What gives meaning to the hours of effort? What is our impact on people, whose challenges and dreams inspire our own? Run With Purpose explores all these questions. It is a conversation, a celebration, a call to action. It asks us to pause, step back from the day-to-day and reflect on the big picture of what we do, and why we do it.
  2. 2. What people may not realize about SAP? We asked…
  3. 3. Abdulrazac Afolabi Nigeria Business Process Consultant | Change Agent “It’s a lot more flexible than they imagine and we listen to feedback. People underestimate the change that SAP can make in business, society and their own lives.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  4. 4. Alexandra Van der Ploeg Germany Global Program Lead, Corp. Social Responsibility | Economic Developer “ How many people we actually touch. The person on the street doesn’t see the impact we have on their lives, but we have one.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  5. 5. Cristina Antelo Spain Consultant in Active Global Support | Human Connector “It really helps people develop themselves and their careers. People always tell me I’m very lucky.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  6. 6. Eduardo Cobo Colombia Sr. Consultant in Business & Sales Operations | Sales Artist “That it is inspired about making people’s lives better. I see a lot of projects in developing countries and through social responsibility and partnerships with customers – we truly believe in that mission.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  7. 7. Erwil Heath South Africa Business Operations Principal | Free Thinker “There’s a misconception that we’re only for large multi-national companies. But every company starts off small. We’re able to address every challenge a company might experience.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  8. 8. Geoff Gagesch United States Solutions Engineer | Team Player “I don’t want to sound like I’ve drunk the Kool-Aid, but we’re on the cutting- edge of really cool industries and markets.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  9. 9. Holly Simmons United States VP of Marketing, Social Software | The Explorer “That it really is a global company. That way of thinking goes into everything we do, from designing a product to naming things. It gives us a very unique way of looking at the world.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  10. 10. Jackie Montesinos Suarez United States Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, North America| The Team Builder “The media has seen us as “the German giant” but we’re a diverse culture. SAP Brazil is run by Brazilians. People think we’re techy but we’re just normal people.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  11. 11. Laura Dougherty United States HR Direct Manager | Voice of Calm “ I think we’re perceived as very rigid and in reality we’re actually very agile. We change so much and we’re very laid back.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  12. 12. Sam Yen United States Sr. V.P Consumer Solutions & Chairman of Projects | Experience Expert “It’s completely new if you look at us today versus what we were just two or three years ago. People who haven’t been looking at SAP will be really surprised – we’re changing very, very fast.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  13. 13. Sarah Salem United States HR and Internal Communication Manager | Empowering Presence “It really cares about the people and the impact we’re having and the communities where we operate. Every single person I’ve worked with has been so committed.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  14. 14. Shannon Platz United States Vice President, SAP Platform Solutions | The Coach “We have an incredible amount of innovation going on and excitement about the future. The other thing is how much of a team environment we have. You’re part of something bigger than yourself.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  15. 15. Stefan Ziegler Germany Senior Pre-sales Expert| Solution Finder “That what is special are the employees. There is no one SAP. For me, it’s the chance to meet someone new every day and work with so many people. Every day is interesting.” What people may not realize about SAP?
  16. 16. Yongwoo Kim Korea Maintenance Renewal Sales Account Executive | Lifelong Learner “It is quite innovative. In Korea, workers at lower levels can’t talk about their ideas. At SAP, it doesn’t matter – you can voice your opinions.” What people may not realize about SAP?
