SAP va travailler avec Specialisterne pour favoriser l’embauche de personnes autistes


SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) annonce son intention de travailler avec Specialisterne, au niveau international, pour favoriser l’emploi de personnes autistes au sein de l’entreprise. SAP prévoit de leur proposer des postes de testeurs de logiciels, de programmeurs ou de spécialistes de la qualité des données. Specialisterne, l’un des leaders dans le recrutement de personnes autistes dans les domaines de la programmation et de la gestion des données, va étendre ses opérations au niveau mondial pour soutenir cette initiative de SAP.



Des projets similaires ont déjà été menés en Irlande et en Inde où SAP Labs a recruté 6 personnes atteintes d'autisme au poste de testeurs de logiciels ; l’impact de cette initiative a été très positive et a permis de confirmer l’efficacité de ce projet. Ce programme va être étendu à l’ensemble des bureaux de SAP, et notamment des Etats-Unis, du Canada et de l’Allemagne, qui en bénéficieront d’ici à la fin de l’année 2013.

SAP to work with Specialisterne to employ people with Autism

In support of its mission to help the world run better and improve people's lives, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced it will work globally with Specialisterne to employ people with autism as software testers, programmers and data quality assurance specialists. SAP sees a potential competitive advantage to leveraging the unique talents of people with autism, while also helping them to secure meaningful employment. It is estimated that one percent* of the world’s population is affected by autism (Autism Spectrum Disorder).

Specialisterne is an internationally recognized leader in harnessing the talents of people with autism to work in technology-oriented jobs such as software testing, programming and data management. Originally founded in Denmark, Specialisterne has operations around the world, including offices in the U.S., UK, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Iceland and Poland. As part of the partnership, Specialisterne will extend its operations to support SAP’s global expansion of the program over the next several years.

“By concentrating on the abilities that every talent brings to the table, we can redefine the way we manage diverse talents,” said Luisa Delgado, member of the Executive Board of SAP AG, Human Resources. “With Specialisterne, we share a common belief that innovation comes from the ‘edges.’ Only by employing people who think differently and spark innovation will SAP be prepared to handle the challenges of the 21st century.”

“We are very excited by this opportunity to enable SAP global access to a huge pool of untapped talent and therefore, help strengthen SAP’s position as a global leader in innovation,” said Thorkil Sonne, founder of Specialisterne and chairman of the board, Specialist People Foundation. “SAP is the first multinational company to partner with us on a global scale. The partnership will position SAP as thought leader and motivate the ecosystem to follow its example.”

The global announcement follows successful pilot projects in India and Ireland that demonstrate the positive impact of empowering people with autism to excel in their areas of strength. Working locally with Specialisterne, SAP® Labs in India hired six people with autism as software testers for SAP® Business Suite applications. As a result, the team has increased their productivity and cohesiveness in key areas. The Ireland pilot is currently completing the screening phase for five positions to be filled this year. SAP will expand the program globally, starting in the U.S., Canada and Germany in 2013.

At SAP, an inclusive and diverse environment promotes a culture that enables employees to find innovative solutions to challenges facing customers as well as society as a whole. Furthering its engagement with the local community of people and families affected by autism, SAP Labs in India recently developed a consumer iPad application called “Bol” to assist with the education of children with autism. This innovative learning program helps children learn and comprehend simple, everyday objects and processes, using auditory, visual and instant feedback functions.

*Exact global figures are not available. Reliable sources for autism statistics include the Autism Society, Autism Speaks, or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
