  A breakdown of new employee hires by age group and gender as well as total numbers is proprietary information for SAP.     SAP   6
                     
LA6   In Germany, we measure the accident rate with a “1000-Mann-Quote” (TMQ). This is calculated as the number of reportable accidents × 1000 employees/number of full-time equivalents. Reportable accidents are work-related and include commuting accidents that result in more than three days of absence from work. In 2015, the TMQ was 3.4 (4.2 in 2014). We also measure the accident rate per one million working hours. In 2015, this value increased to 2.2 reportable accidents per one million working hours (2.7 in 2014).   Injuries, diseases, lost days, or absenteeism are not a material issue for SAP as we track our Business Health Culture Index on a global basis.       SAP    
LA9   Employees and Social Investments   Training hours split by gender and employee category are not a material issue for SAP as we align our training activities according to the needs of each employee and do not tolerate discrimination.     SAP   6
LA10   Employees and Social Investments
For continued employability and managing career endings, SAP has dedicated staff to support generational intelligence. These experts work on continuously improving processes and designing programs for sustaining employability as long as possible; providing training for cross-generation collaboration; managing career endings in a flexible way (for example, part-time options); and keeping employees connected with the company after retirement. SAP also participates in external research studies and networks on workforce demographics to share and learn about best practices in this field.

N/A   Leadership   Our leadership principles (ensuring customer success, driving simplicity, developing amazing talent) remain the foundation for leadership at SAP. We calculate the overall leadership trust score for people leaders, which uses the Net Promoter Score (NPS) methodology based on results from our annual people survey.     SAP    
N/A   Social Investments   Our social investment strategy leverages our talent, technology and capital to create long-term, sustainable change. In 2015, we continued to focus on two areas that are critical to both SAP and
society: education and entrepreneurship.

N/A   Business Health Culture Index   Our Business Health Culture Index (BHCI), based on our People Survey, assesses the degree to which our workplace culture supports people’s wellbeing, work/life balance, and organizational health. In 2015 our BHCI result was 75%, compared to 72% in 2014.     SAP
