The Secrets to Providing Best in Class Benefits: SAP HR Leaders Discuss their Award Winning Approach

Join HR colleagues from around the Philadelphia area on the SAP campus in Newtown, PA on Thursday, October 20, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. You'll hear from the HR Department of the Year Award 2021 Winner of Excellence in Benefits, SAP, who will discuss their decision in 2021 to apply for the award, how they benefited from the process, and share their Total Rewards best practices that contributed to winning the award. SAP Total Rewards team’s number one initiative is to provide best in class benefits. These benefits must foster diversity and inclusion and meet the immediate and long-term wellness needs of our employees. Through a discussion with SAP HR leaders, attendees will learn about SAP's variety of offerings and how it enables their employees to create a benefit experience that fits their individual needs and the team's number one initiative. In support of realizing this, SAP SuccessFactors is the heart of everything the SAP HR team does and transforms traditional HR practices into engaging experiences that helps everyone perform at their best. SAP SuccessFactors colleagues will be onsite to discuss its suite of solutions. An interactive networking session and cocktail hour will follow the presentation.

From Our Members

“As a Human Resource professional, you are invited to a number of seminars and networking events. The challenge is finding those that provide the best opportunity for professional development, exchanging best practices and engaging in high quality networking with peers. After attending the Human Resources Executive Alliance event, I can tell you that they have it mastered. Having the opportunity to hear first hand perspectives from the CEO of one the largest healthcare systems in the region was priceless. The HREA is the premiere networking alliance for Human Resources."
