SAP Volunteerism

In addition to specific national and local programs, SAP encourages and supports employee volunteerism year-round. In this regard, we partner with several different Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and come together to create positive social change in our communities through volunteering in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Our signature volunteering initiative is our Month of Service held in October of every year, where more than 150 projects are executed across the country aligned to our areas of focus. Thousands of SAP employees in the UKI participate in our Month of Service, along with several partners and customers in some cities.

SAP also recognises that our senior executives are excellent ambassadors for SAP, and we encourage them to lend their management expertise to nonprofit organisations as board members. The Executive Community Leadership Program facilitates and supports the service of SAP executives on nonprofit boards.

Synergy for Positive Social Change

SAP's social investment in the United Kingdom and Ireland supports a wide range of initiatives grant making to higher learning. The program demonstrates how incorporating community stakeholders into our business network not only supports corporate goals and responsibility, but also encourages nonprofit organisations to promote social change in a positive and sustainable way.
