During the extraordinary time of the COVID-19 pandemic, current temporary SAP guidance requires all employees to work from their homes. If, as of the intended May 2021 start date of the 2021 program, SAP's work from home guidance is still in effect, participation in the program will be on a virtual basis from your current home address until further SAP guidance is provided. However, in ordinary circumstances, a portion of the program requires travel to SAP's San Ramon, CA office. If SAP's COVID-19 work from home guidance concludes, we intend to conduct a portion of the program in San Ramon, CA and travel therefore would be required in order to continue in the program. You will be provided with up to 4-weeks' notice. If you are unable for any reason to travel to San Ramon, CA once notified of the in-person program intent, your participation in the program may be discontinued and your associated employment ended, and thereafter SAP will have no further obligation to you.
Upon selection into the sales academy, you will be aligned to a specific market unit or specific solution in license sales or aligned to Services Sales based on the needs of the business.
