SAP Workers Chide Management’s U.S. Shift, Euro am Sonntag Says

SAP AG (SAP)’s German works council said it’s concerned about a shift in the balance of power within the company’s leadership toward the U.S., Euro am Sonntag reported, citing an internal message by Stefan Kohl, works council chief, and his deputy, Christiane Kuntz-Mayer.

The workers are prepared to “contribute with all available means to ensure the relevance of Germany as a location,” the newspaper cited the message as saying.

SAP on April 20 set up a global managing board to assist its executive board, and named U.S.-based managers Robert Enslin and Lars Dalgaard to the new body.
