Workforce 2020: Reducing total workforce costs through strategic procurement

Overview

Workforce 2020: Reducing total workforce costs through strategic procurement 

Tim Cook at Apple, Mary Barra at General Motors, both were responsible for procurement before making the step up to CEO. While organisations are starting to recognise the strategic value procurement can offer, it is up to procurement functions to step up and demonstrate their expertise. With 77% of employers struggling to attract talent and increasing use of SOW and non-permanent workers to address skills shortages and hide headcount spend, tackling talent management and the associated supply chain offers procurement professionals the perfect opportunity to prove their strategic worth on a topic plaguing the board room: access to talent. In this webinar CIPS knowledge partner for recruitment outsourcing Hays Talent Solutions will cover how procurement teams can assume a more meaningful role by applying its expertise and scientific and process-led focus to talent management.

Summary of presentation:

Procurement has huge amount of potential value to add to very top of organisation, but has hasn’t always been the best about shouting about successes or raising its profile as a strategic business partner. As skills shortages and headcount cuts increasingly see businesses turn to non-permanent resourcing techniques procurement has a vital role to play in helping organisations to better manage their talent supply chains.

In this webinar Geoff will cover how procurement professionals can step up to help address the biggest challenge facing today’s organisation: access to talent, and in turn raise the profile of procurement
