|SAP Labs India, the second largest Research and Development center for SAP globally, has opened SAPlings, a state-of-the art on-site Child Care Center at its campus in Whitefield, Bangalore - an initiative to support SAP's committment to gender diversity and work-life balance.
Accommodating children in the age group of 9 months to 12 years, this facility will have a high impact in creating and propagating a more gender diverse workforce. Jim Hagemann Snabe, Co-CEO SAP AG inaugurated SAPlings during his visit to India on 15th September 2011. This inauguration aligns with SAP Labs' strong belief in diversity and gender inclusivity, which form the key drivers for success. With SAP planning to increase the number of women in its management position to 25% by end 2017, such initiatives will positively benefit women employees intending to discontinue their career due to demands of parenting.
WeCare, operating the largest early child care centers in Bangalore, has been selected to exclusively manage SAPlings. Built on a total area of 10,300 sq. feet, SAPlings is equipped to care for infants, toddlers and also provide Preschool education. With a capacity to care for 150 children SAPlings is the largest onsite early childcare center in India.
"Partnering with progressive employers like SAP Labs India, WeCare is happy to continue its endeavour of making quality early childcare centers accessable to all working parents especially mothers" said Reshma Shrinivas, Managing Director, WeCare Learning Pvt. Ltd.
