Fueled by our passion to create a better world
Our corporate responsibility strategy to serve our communities is fueled by our passion to create a better world.
Sabre has a deep history of philanthropy and giving back to the communities in which we live and work. In the last 20 years, Sabre has donated more than $20 million and logged over 300,000 volunteer hours as part of Give Together, our global corporate social responsibility (CSR) program. In partnership with our team members, communities and customers, Give Together helps drive positive social and environmental change.
We take extra measures to help ensure that team members in all countries in which Sabre operates have an opportunity to participate in our community outreach efforts.
Team members share their experiences with others by posting stories and pictures on the Sabre Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages.
Sharing our time and talents with the communities where we live and work is one of our greatest corporate characteristics.
Give Time Together is our single largest global initiative where Sabre employees collectively volunteer around the globe. Each year, employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and resources in their local communities. Team members are given opportunities to participate in group events and/or independent volunteer activities for charities and non-profit organizations in their local areas. Volunteer events have also been a successful way for employees to build relationships with their colleagues across our businesses.
Recognizing the importance of volunteering, Sabre allows all full-time team members to take four days of paid time off per year (one per quarter) to volunteer for any purpose they choose.
Sabre partners with Benevity, a global leader in workplace giving, volunteering and grant making programs, to help team members find the volunteer opportunities that mean the most to them.
Sabre has also highlighted STEM opportunities to help create critical thinkers and enable the next generation of innovators. We are focusing on “Girls Who Code” as a key group of focus and partnership.
We encourage team members to donate to the charities and non-profit organizations that mean the most to them. During our annual global campaign, Give Together, donations can be made through event fundraisers and one-time donations.
The global team members giving week is our largest annual philanthropic undertaking. In addition to volunteering their time, team members are empowered to organize special events to help raise needed funds for local charities. Events have included obstacle courses, bake sales, golf tournaments, talent shows, silent auctions, and even an executive pie tossing contest.
When disaster strikes and humankind is faced with unforeseen hardships, our team members come together to support relief efforts, donating their time, money and goods to charities by providing aid and comfort to those in need.
