2013 Edition of Aon Hewitt’s Best Employer Survey recognizes SAP Labs India as one of the 17 best organizations in India to work for
BANGALORE, INDIA: SAP Labs India announced being named among the 17 Best Employers in India for 2013, by Aon Hewitt. SAP Labs India was recognized for engaging employees, creating a compelling employer brand, establishing a culture of high performance and developing effective leadership.
Congratulating SAP Labs India, Tarandeep Singh, Partner and Engagement Practice Leader, Aon Hewitt stated, "SAP Labs displays all the right ingredients which make a Best Employer - strong financials and business performance, alignment between business and HR, and high scores on all parameters, as rated by employees."
"There were some factors which decisively set apart SAP Labs from other organizations, for instance, the sheer number of initiatives that the organization is undertaking around diversity and inclusion (D&I) to improve the availability of opportunities for women and people with disability. D&I is a thrust area for business, and not merely a ‘good to have'. The organization has co-created some HR policies with employees as part of Project Ignite, reflecting a culture of empowerment, trust and transparency."
Some innovative HR policies and programs that drove Diversity and Inclusion in SAP Labs are:
· Business Women Network (BWN) which aims to provide support, education and networking opportunities for women in business.
· Maternity Return Program which focuses on making the return of a female employee, post maternity leave, as smooth as possible.
· Woman of Substance, a platform for women employees to send in their stories, or for their colleagues to nominate outstanding achievers who have overcome personal adversities.
