Thread regarding SAP layoffs

80 employees at the Singapore SSC impacted

I am hearing that 80 employees at the Singapore SSC impacted. Their roles/groups are being moved to the EXISTING Manila SSC. Unsure if 1) the 80 is accurate and 2) that covers every group working out of the Singapore SSC. Shocked that they are doing this but, that said, Singapore, as "low cost location" has always been a bit of joke. Still, it takes quite a lot to push leadership to change location strategy... beginning to think the trouble is far greater than we all first thought and that the company may just be in some sort of real trouble. I don't think there is an existential issue.... but it could be that this "restructuring" is the first step towards a new reality at SAP. Time will tell…

Found this on another thread. Can anyone confirm this????

We'll see how much of this information is exaggerated when the Ax starts falling in the UK and MEE on April 1st. UK will be first since they have weak labour laws. France, Spain & Germany will be last as the final approval comes from Works Council.

Starting March 4th, over 1000 people were let go in NA alone. Palo Alto and NSQ were hit very hard. I have not heard much about LAC. It is very bad for morale as so many that remain have no idea who will be responsible for tasks with half their teams gone. Hasso seems to have sold out on innovation.

“The affected employees have been given until 31 Dec to find another role within SAP. ”

If you are one of the affected, and you found a new role that is somewhat similar to your previous role but just pays way LESS, it is way better for you to move on. If you take on the new role, the company saves on restructuring and labor costs and in all likelihood gets closer to hiring another “local” to meet their hiring quota for TAFEP. You on the other hand get nothing. If you take an outside job, at least you get to keep the lay-off payout.

I was talking with someone from Singapore on Mon and I was told 50. She thought it was 50 but this is unconfirmed and take it with a large grain of salt.

I know folks from the Singapore office and can confirm that it happened. The affected employees have been given until 31 Dec to find another role within SAP. Many of those affected broke down.

I wouldn't put too much faith in the accuracy of this. Rumors are swirling within the company and there seems to be a tremendous amount of exaggeration in many of the comments here.
