Why SAP?

At SAP, we believe that anything is possible. We have helped to change enterprise software and reinvented how business is done, with an entrepreneurial spirit that drives our company culture of creativity, diversity, and collaboration. The people who work at SAP are the heart of the company, so we asked some of our employees in P&I why they chose SAP, and why they continue to love working here.

Rewarding bold ideas

The boldness it took to start our company is exactly what we need to keep growing it. That’s why we introduced the Hasso Plattner Founders Award. Trust us – you’ll want to win. The Hasso Plattner Founders’ Award is the highest employee recognition at SAP. It’s awarded annually by the CEO to an individual or team whose extraordinary achievement best delivers on SAP’s vision and strategy. 


The SAP Intrapreneurship program encourages employees to pitch their best and boldest business ideas to an internal jury. The winning team’s idea gets vetted, funded, and brought to life at SAP.
