SAP values, encourages – and thrives on – diversity

Diversity is more than just a policy, it’s a smart way to do business – and key to our sustainable growth, innovation, and competitive edge. At SAP, over 66,500 employees from more than 124 nationalities work together in an inclusive environment that values differences in culture, race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and physical ability.
