SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announces the creation of a dedicated recruitment onboarding program with the aim of matching refugees from Ukraine with vacancies across its network of global offices.
The initiative aims to attract, match, and retain qualified refugees from Ukraine with suitable job opportunities at SAP in Romania, Germany, Czechia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, and Slovakia.
As part of the program, SAP has launched a dedicated landing page online to highlight relevant vacancies to refugees from Ukraine, answer all frequently asked questions and provide the possibility to register interest in a special talent pool without uploading all relevant documents. This aims to make the recruitment process even faster, providing reassurance to applicants.
Available roles include software engineering, sales, presales, consulting, and support functions such as HR and finance. Fixed contract opportunities and part-time job sharing in Germany is also possible.
As part of SAP’s ‘Pledge to Flex’ initiative, its employees can work flexibly. If offered a role, Ukrainian employees that have been displaced by the ongoing conflict will also benefit from buddy support with a fellow Ukrainian employee, mental health support, dedicated learning and language courses, childcare offerings (in some countries), and advanced payment options for newly hired talent.
Project Leader Cawa Younosi, Global Head of People Experience at SAP commented: “All SAP employees around the world have been saddened by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and are increasingly seeking ways to help. We have lots of vacancies that will match the skills of some of those fleeing the tragedy. By doing what we can to accelerate the recruitment process, we can begin to offer these people security and support as part of the SAP family.”
This is the latest in a line of support mechanisms SAP has launched to assist with the humanitarian crisis. Its employees have already helped to offer shelters to around 4,000 refugees from Ukraine in neighboring countries.
