On March 26, Sabre Young Professionals Council (#SabreYPC) hosted a campus-wide kickoff event that highlighted the organization, the different ways to get involved, and some of the projects the young leaders will be working on in 2015. This event included 50 employees and the response  towards the YPC organization was positive as new members inquired with active committee members about their involvement and the potential impact(s) that YPC can make across the company.

The Young Professionals Council is a Sabre-wide employee resource organization that helps develop Sabre’s future leaders through networking, mentorship, and leadership opportunities. Sabre YPC consists of the following six committees:

Brand and Marketing – Provide ideas, collateral, branding, and media materials for YPC sponsored events, internal meetings, and other YPC committee or council initiatives

Education – Host events and other informative sessions for YPC members to learn more about topics important to Sabre and the overall industry

Mentorship – Provide employees with a formal mentorship opportunity with guided relationships and events that allow pairs to develop professionally and personally

University Relations – Support HR and University Recruiting for career fairs, information sessions, and any other university facing activities

Strategy – Identify initiatives that drive high member value and guide the organization into its next phase of growth, which will create more business value

Social – Plan events for YPC members to provide philanthropy, networking, and socializing opportunities

The group is always looking for interested new members and benefits most from a diverse membership base, allowing the group to foster relationships across teams, business units, and functional roles. The YPC organization continues to evolve and grow  both at our HDQ campus in Southlake, TX as well as globally, it’s great to see growing interest for the group and receive positive feedback related to this highly talented group of young professionals. Many thanks to those who showed up to the successful kick-off last Thursday! YPC looks forward to beginning its relationship with you and making a meaningful impact on your time here at Sabre.
