ATTRACTING AND UPSKILLING TALENT

The sourcing profession is changing rapidly – and so are the requirements of those within it. The strategic sourcing professional of today is no longer expected to focus on pure cost savings and non-core services. Instead professionals need to understand how emerging technologies and contracting models can create real value to the business, as well engaging in new ways to create mutually sustainable closer working relationships – elevating sourcing closer and closer to the C-suite.

Securing key talent in a highly competitive market remains one of the single greatest challenges facing any organisation, regardless of where it sits on the outsourcing spectrum. Providing the relevant ongoing professional development for existing employees is increasingly problematic in the face of rapidly evolving technology, ways of working and organisational structures. Can the sourcing function of the future be adequately defined today? Can those professionals engaged in the industry today across the outsourcing spectrum, work together to ensure they can attract the next generation of professionals?
