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 2016, the TMQ was 3.6 (3.4 in 2015). We also measure the accident rate per one million working hours. In 2016, this value slightly increased to 2.3 reportable accidents per one million working hours (2.2 in 2015).   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   Our learning strategy is also based on the principle that much of employee learning and development happens outside formal training through peer-based interaction such as coaching, mentoring, rotational programs and on-the-job-guided development experiences. As a result, we have decided to no longer report on the number of formal training hours per employee because it does not provide meaningful insights.         SAP    
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.
