How SAP Partners, SAP SuccessFactors and SAP BTP Are Helping to Push Workplace Diversity

Workplace diversity programs are quickly becoming more than just a series of panels, meetups, workshops, celebrations, and observances. They’re also bringing people together from all walks of life – different genders, backgrounds, and races – to enable process changes that drive revenue and a sustainable competitive advantage through diversity.

But first, businesses need to run more effective diversity programs. Why? According to Boston Consulting Group (BCG), 75% of employees worldwide do not feel impacted by these efforts – even though approximately 70% of companies have implemented them.

This disheartening survey finding inspired SAP and BCG to join forces to help unlock the full potential of workplace diversity. The partnership combines both companies’ expertise, services, and technologies – including SAP SuccessFactors solutions and SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP).

Jagdish Sahasrabudhe, Chief Technology Officer of the Global Partner organization at SAP, explains the potential of this collaboration in his blog: “With SAP BTP, companies can bring this vision to life by thinking differently when developing new capabilities that enhance SAP SuccessFactors solutions. They can recognize identity differences that matter to employees, understand broad groups with similar needs and values, and fulfill employees’ underlying needs systematically with the right digital and process experiences.”

By encouraging innovation efforts with SAP BTP and SAP SuccessFactors solutions, SAP and BCG are empowering SAP partners to create business environments where unconscious and conscious discrimination no longer exist. And together, we are building a business culture of merit-based unity, empowerment, and support across recruitment, onboarding, performance, development, compensation, and succession with more advanced, bias-free solutions.

Find out how the combination of SAP SuccessFactors solutions and SAP BTP, supported by SAP partners, can transform workplace diversity programs into a “must-have” lever of sustainable competitive advantage. Read Sahasrabudhe’s blog, “How a Single Platform Amplifies the Value of a Diverse Workplace.”
