How can SAP master diversity in a global company?

Summary. In this article of the series “Give Data Purpose Weekly” I share how SAP focusses on health and well-being of every employee. Nina Strassner, SAP Head of Diversity and Inclusion, and Christian Hecker, SAP Chief Data & Analytics Officer, share how they translated cultural business requirements into a great solution.

How can SAP master diversity in a global company?

Dealing with diversity on the one side requires equality on the other side. Even though SAP highly invest in our ambitions, it is essential to receive a fact-based, and ideally quantitative feedback. And since we are not the only company facing this challenge, I would like to share this as a new internal use case for HR in the following video (find here the first part of “Inside SAP“).

In order to pass on first-hand experience to you, I have asked two field experts to provide insights on their work. Therefore, Nina Strassner, Head of SAPs Diversity & Inclusion team, and Christian Hecker, SAP Chief Data & Analytics Officer, share how they have translated these crucial requirements into the great solution “My Team Dashboard”.

“Just ask your employees!”

For Nina Strassner this is the best and simplest way to overcome the challenge by receiving honest and reliable feedback. Based on their insights, she and her team are able to understand their needs and how this topic effects the daily work. But how can we evaluate these information and how can we put this in perspective?

To translate these personal insights into qualitative, quantitative and relatable information and share it in an easy way with all team managers, Christian Hecker introduces “My Team Dashboard” with the words:

“Imagine you had only 2 minutes to report the diversity of your team – what is the ratio of men and women – also in leading or in part-time positions. What would the perfect tool provide to help you understand the diversity of your teams immediately?”

Real-time access to globally distributed data

“My Team Dashboard” ensures besides access to very different data sources across roles, achievements, trainings, promotions, and nominations, also

  • secure handling with sensitive data
  • real-time KPIs on e.g. team size, composition and financials
  • simple investigation by drilling down on deeper levels
