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.
