SAN FRANCISCO, CA – 20 September 2017 – Sabre, a global travel technology company, and BTS, a world-leading strategy implementation firm, have won a coveted Brandon Hall Group Gold award for excellence in the “Best Advance in Leadership Development” category. The winners, which were announced mid-September, are all listed here.
The program for which this honor was awarded focuses on driving Sabre’s business into the future through their people. Specifically, it centers on: driving strategic alignment, fostering a culture of collaboration and customer-centricity, developing leadership capabilities needed to accelerate business results, and improving business acumen by better understanding the company’s business model and interrelationships across businesses. This talent initiative kicked off in 2015, and has been implemented in a number of weeklong sessions since.
“BTS is proud to be recognized along with the Sabre Corporation for our partnership and success with Sabre’s Leadership Excellence program,” says Matthew Prostko, Managing Director at BTS. “Focused on their most senior executive leaders, Leadership Excellence embodies one of BTS’ strongest beliefs – that business and people leadership challenges never present themselves separately from one another, and are inextricably linked. As such, leadership development experiences should always present these challenges together, and in the most contextually relevant way. Leadership Excellence equips Sabre leaders to execute in the moment, with competence and confidence.”
“Excellence Award winners symbolize the power and impact that Human Capital Management practices can have on a business or on any organization,” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “Many organizations can have great HCM initiatives, but the standard of excellence only applies for organizations whose HCM practices truly benefit the business. That’s what the Excellence Awards program stands for, and that is what Brandon Hall Group stands for.”
