MarketFlash: SAP Leads the Way in Corporate Learning With Eight Industry Recognitions

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - March 17, 2016) - Establishing its position at the head of the class as an innovator in learning and development, SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) has won a total of eight learning and development awards since the start of 2015, taking gold in categories ranging from "Best Unique or Innovative Leadership Development Program" to "Best Innovative Corporate University."

These learning and development recognitions include:

  • Chief Learning Officer Magazine, 2016 LearningElite Award*
    Acknowledges SAP for its exemplary workforce development strategies that deliver significant business results, benefitting the organization, the industry, and the learning and development field.
    *SAP is a finalist for this award. Final rankings will be announced on April 4.
  • International Coach Federation, 2015 Prism Award
    Honors SAP's Global Coaching Practice (GCP) for fulfilling rigorous professional standards, addressing key strategic goals, shaping organizational culture, and yielding discernible and measurable positive impacts.

With its award-winning learning programs, SAP is leading the charge in shaping the workforce of the future. In a world where nearly one third of organizations have identified a lack of qualified workers as a barrier to growth and only 34 percent of executives agree that their leaders are prepared to lead a diverse workforce, SAP is proud to offer the resources needed to close those performance gaps and develop exceptional leaders.

"Today's workforce is evolving rapidly, and we are committed to developing skilled employees and great leaders from within," said Jenny Dearborn, senior vice president and chief learning officer at SAP. "The consistent recognition of our learning initiatives reaffirms our efforts in driving modern learning and continuous innovation."

Instilling a culture of learning can help increase employee engagement, and ultimately, business execution. Employees who are productive and motivated to achieve both personal and company goals contribute to better business outcomes. As organizations work to stay competitive and retain top talent, it is more important than ever to prioritize learning practices that empower employees to succeed. In fact, companies that invest highly in their employees - including training and development - decrease turnover by 65 percent, a significant advantage in a job market where skilled workers are more sought-after than ever.
