A major international IT company, SAP, has opened an internship program for students with disabilities, the company’s press office reports. Candidates are selected on the basis of the principle of “flexible hiring” – first, an interview is held with the candidates, during which their interests and skills are determined, and then the most interesting direction in which they are employed is selected.

For many years, the company SAP adheres to the principle of Diversity & Inclusion. The company welcomes a variety of cultures, races, ethnicities, age, gender, physical abilities in its teams. In SAP, it is considered that there are no people with disabilities, but there are people who are gifted with other abilities. Such people are able to find unique and innovative solutions to various problems. Their perspectives, experience and knowledge support the diversity that SAP needs to achieve its strategic goals.

SAP focuses on the skills and strengths of its employees, and this view helps to see new opportunities where others see limitations. All this makes SAP stronger and helps to achieve success in any endeavours, the company’s management believes.

As part of a separate internship program for students with disabilities, they are given the opportunity to gain experience in  modern European companies, some of the world leaders in the field of information transformation, having access to all the company’s training resources, as well as guaranteed pension scheme as part of the the SAP system.
