SAP’s rulebook allows employees to work one day a week from home.
SAP in India assigns a cab to a pregnant employee from her seventh month of pregnancy, which she can use to commute to work. She is assigned a buddy at the workplace — some one who is a mother already — with whom the pregnant employee can discuss problems and mood swings that she may be experiencing.
V R Ferose, till recently the head of SAP Labs India, started a programme to hire autistic people as employees. The autistic employees are also assigned buddies (another employee) to ensure they do not run into problems at work.
