SAP is a global market leader in enterprise application software. SAP’s groundbreaking Autism at Work program, launched in May 2013, integrates people with autism into the workforce. SAP has a corporate goal to employ 650 colleagues on the autism spectrum.
In August 2016, the SAP Autism at Work Program launched in Australia. The program employs university students on the autism spectrum to work for SAP as Interns. The program to date has been established in Canberra and Sydney and has plans to expand to other States in the coming years.
SAP agrees that: “Individuals on the autism spectrum bring such unique skillsets to the workplace”.
