The Path Forward Return to Work program at SAP is a 16- week paid returnship for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off for caregiving. The program is open to women and men who have at least 5 years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for at least two years to focus on caring for a child or other dependent. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply.

SAP started in 1972 as a team of five colleagues with a desire to do something new. Together, they changed enterprise software and reinvented how business was done. Today, the same entrepreneurial spirit continues to drive our culture of creativity, diversity and collaboration. We believe that together we can transform industries, grow economics, lift up societies and sustain our environment. Because it’s the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people’s lives.

The key to SAP’s success is our people. The unique individuals who work here are constantly pushing boundaries and breaking down barriers. We are a diverse group who bring our own experiences, perspectives, and ideas to the table. We create a fresh and exciting work environment – and together we can accomplish anything. Working with happy people is the best. We are innovators, we are leaders – and we strive to be great all-around human beings. As colleagues we support, challenge, and inspire one another every day. We’re results-driven and ready to go the extra mile for our customers.

Gender equality is an important part of SAP’s mission to help the world run better and improve people’s lives. Operating in an industry often cited for its lack of diversity, SAP has been working to counter this trend and be a tech company that is willing to lead by example.

SAP has received many awards for being an awesome place to work. Our secret? A culture that lets our employees shine. Recently we have been recognized as a 2018 Global Top Employer by Top Employers Institute, ranked 5th in the Best Places to Work in Technology, announced as the 17th most valuable brand by 2018 BrandZ™ Top 100 Most Valuable Global Brands, rated 8th in Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Technology Leaders, and made Forbes’ list for America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2018.

“One of the things we see at SAP SuccessFactors as we help customers address, and in our own experience as well, is that we have a shortage globally of “traditional” workforce candidates. But what we recognize is that when we bend the boundaries to look at a more diverse population ready to contribute to the success of our businesses, one of those talent pools is clearly people who have stepped out of the workforce for caregiving for a period of time, but are now eager to re-join it. This is an exciting opportunity for our business,” said Greg Tomb, president, SAP SuccessFactors. “I’m excited about this partnership with Path Forward which opens the door for passionate, experienced professionals to find opportunities with our teams. Having greater diversity and inclusion leads to greater performance and innovation.”
