TORONTO, January 31, 2017 /3BL Media/ – Today, openSAP and the RW Institute (RWI) announce the rollout of Empathy in Motion: The Power of Employee Volunteering, a new, free Massive Open Online Course available to companies and volunteers globally.

"A global commitment to supporting the communities in which we operate via corporate volunteering is embedded in our corporate culture. We are proud to collaborate with the RW Institute to bring a better understanding of the power of employee volunteering to help employees build bridges, embrace differences and develop empathy – relevant skills personally as well as professionally.” says Alicia Lenze, VP, Head of Global CSR, SAP SE.

Designed by RWI and hosted by openSAP, Empathy in Motion is a two-part course that first guides participants through what makes volunteering meaningful. The second half of the course offers practical guidance on setting up employee volunteer programs and on running volunteer events, giving participants a truly transformative model of volunteerism.

“As we give, and when we acknowledge the needs of others, we open ourselves up to receive. And, what we receive is a reminder of what it means to be human – and that we are part of larger, global narrative where we have a role to play,” says Chris Jarvis, CEO, Realized Worth.

Empathy in Motion is open to the general public, and is especially recommended to individuals interested in social psychology, involved with company volunteer programs, volunteers, or to those working in the social responsibility field.

The course tests knowledge development, provides weekly assignments, and offers space for online discussion in the course forum. Following successful completion (achieving >50% grade) of the course by April 12, students receive a Record of Achievement that can be added to résumés or LinkedIn profiles.
