Nurturing Procurement Talent in the Millennial Era
Wed 12 October 2016, 11:00 – 14:30 BST
There is a shortage of talent in the procurement profession. So what can procurement executives do about this? Simply poaching staff from other organisations is not a sustainable solution for the profession as a whole.
So what can we practically do to attract the best people, motivate, retain and nurture them to become the "stars" and CPOs of the future?
We will provide some recommendations in all stages of the process, from recruitment through to development and retention. We will look at the Millennials, who will become the dominant generation over the next few years in our workforces. Do they really have a different outlook on life - and if so, how do today's leaders need to take account of that in their thinking?
