What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness reduces your tendency to react on autopilot, allowing you to choose how you respond without dwelling on worries for the future or memories of the past.
History and objectives
Beginning in 2012 as a grassroots initiative to help employees thrive in a rapidly changing global economy, our mindfulness program is now deeply anchored in SAP’s culture.
Highly-trained mindfulness instructors
In partnership with the not-for-profit Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute (SIYLI), we’ve trained selected SAP employees in the emerging field of teaching mindfulness in corporations.
SAP employees trained at the two-day “SIY” course virtually and in more than 56 locations
Mindfulness Ambassadors in 35+ locations
Active participants in our virtual community
Integrated Mindfulness Practices at SAP
In these videos, learn how your team's culture can benefit from mindfulness practices just by integrating simple techniques – inspired by siyli.org – that bring positivity and productivity to your workday. Additional mindfulness practices will be launched soon.
Build mindfulness into your organisational culture
With 40 certified trainers and more than 60 mindfulness ambassadors at more than 35 SAP locations, we have a thriving community of experts that can offer training on-site or virtually.
Trainings are based on contemporary neuroscience and scientific evidence, program content is strictly secular, and sessions are held in an appropriate business language.
As we deliver training across diverse cultures, we set clear roles, responsibilities, and behavioural guidelines and only accept preapproved and evidence-based content.
Integration with corporate culture
We help firms integrate training into everyday corporate culture, encouraging employees to see mindfulness as part of a healthy routine – like diet and exercise.
