For recent grads, SAS again named one of the Best Places to Work

Career development opportunities, overall culture appeal to young professionals

Business analytics leader SAS has again been named one of the Best Places to Work for Recent Grads by Symplicity Corporation. SAS is one of just 25 employers across the nation recognized for its inspiring and welcoming environment, particularly suited to new graduates entering the workforce.

“SAS’ people are at the center of everything we do and we love unlocking the potential of our millennial employees,” said SAS Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Jenn Mann. “They are very passionate about working on projects they believe in and quickly see that what they do makes a difference. We thrive on a diverse interplay of ages, backgrounds and perspectives.”

SAS is deeply committed to helping its employees succeed at all stages of their careers.  Especially appealing to young professionals are the full-time training programs, such as the SAS Academies. The Academies provide intensive in-class and on-the-job training to ensure that recent grads are set for success as they move into their full-time roles. A Young Professionals group on the internal web fosters a sense of community in the early stages of their career, and development opportunities, such as the Emerging Leaders program, fosters career growth.

These career-developing opportunities are coupled with the widely touted campus benefits, including a free on-site recreation and fitness center; free on-site health care center, and countless on-site conveniences such as a hair salon, dry cleaning and subsidized cafeterias. Such benefits, along with a wide range of personal and professional support services, just scratch the surface of why SAS appeals to a wide range of job seekers.

“It’s no surprise that SAS has been named one of the best places to work for recent grads,” said recent grad and SAS Associate Account Executive Maddie Day. “The SAS Sales Academy provided me with invaluable personal and professional life skills. The program served as a great launching pad to the start of a challenging and fulfilling sales career at a great company.”

Other companies recognized alongside SAS on the list include Cardinal Health, Estee Lauder, Honda, Nestle, and Salesforce.

SAS is widely recognized as a pioneer in workplace culture. SAS ranked No. 2 on the Great Places to Work World's Best Multinational Workplaces list last year. The company is a high-ranking staple on Fortune magazine’s list of Best Companies to Work For in the US. SAS has is listed among the top workplaces in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Mexico, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom.
