The importance of social health

Maintaining good social health during this time gives you a network that will support you through this time of change. And help you build resilience. Staying connected with your team will ultimately determine your success.

Together as ONE

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, SAP Labs Network shot a special video to share the belief that Together as ONE we will emerge stronger from this crisis. The beautiful song used in the video was composed by 1001 Music Lab (one employee club in SAP Labs China) showcases the team spirit and collaboration across many countries to over come this global challenge together.

A Song of Solidarity

The pandemic may have transitioned SAP employees out of the office, but our spirit remains very much united. SAP Labs Israel employees recorded a song, “We’re all in this together”, to show that even when physically apart, our support for each other only grows stronger in challenging times. And despite working from home, we remain connected as one team in a virtual workplace.
