Ambition, Mission and Vision of YPL²

With its focus on young professionals (graduates and career changers up to the age of 35), the Young Professionals Logistics and Supply Chain Luxembourg (YPL2) is pushing towards to become a platform that allows young logisticians who are at the beginning of their professional career to not only network but to find opportunities and inspiration.

Yes we know, there are many networks of all kinds available but the critical and urgent need derives from the fact that in Luxembourg, a country with such high potential in logistics and supply chain management none of the ones available are specifically focusing on young professionals within the field and the next generation to come. YPL² offers a cross-industry platform to connect with colleagues about experiences and challenges the first professional years. Members shall be able to seek advice, make use of other supporting members, while boosting their career prospects and build social and professional relationships. In the meaning of this purpose, network events like workshops, round-tables and fieldtrips are organized specifically for this target group.

In order to generate an environment of common interests where the community can exchange encountered or foreseen trends or projects, talk about experiences or even new ideas what results in the career starters growth and to become an even greater value for the company. It is also to inspire young graduates who are still in doubt to enter this field of high potential or may also be a possibility for companies to reach out and get in touch with the digital natives working in different branches. To achieve the vision to establish a fully supported linkage between young professionals and the industry we are going to proactively get in touch with individuals that are interested and have the aspiration to drive the predictable change that is we not only encounter demographically but others as well.

Our mission is to connect people, to get industries, education, governmental institutions and people to collaborate. We want to create value for the next generation of professionals by promoting logistics and supply chain in Luxembourg. We want to embrace the challenge of this opportunity to regroup young talents to set the structure for a long-term relationship between them and organisations. The idea of the networking platform is followed by the mission to gather potential individuals below the age of 35 within the supply chain and logistics sector.

Roadmap 2016 + 2017

 

Our vision is to create synergies by building a community of young talents for Logistics and Supply Chain in Luxembourg.

We would like to reach out to companies, workers and everybody that wants to help and support building up new relationships for Luxembourg’s new Young Professional Network for Logistics and Supply Chain. This maybe all sounds very promising but it lets a legitimate question arise: how are they going to do this?
