As the world emerges from lockdown, and faces localised second waves of the pandemic, procurement professionals must think about how to attract, retain and manage the best talent. And as the world’s economy faces recession, individuals must address their own career journeys. This year, our CIPS/Hays Procurement Salary Guide and Insights 2020 highlights key trends and insights for the procurement and supply chain profession. Based on an in-depth independent survey (completed by 5100 professionals globally), the report sets out the statistical findings alongside expert commentary, with podcasts and guidance to support you and your teams' career journey. It is the essential benchmark for procurement professionals and employers on skills, salaries, bonuses and benefits.

There are other factors for consideration when changing roles, other than just salary - including career progression and training and development opportunities. The 2020 Salary Guide provides tips and podcasts on how to attract and retain the best talent in your team, and position your organisation for future success. There is the need for organisations to reflect and take proactive action, in line with the benefits that are in demand from talented professionals, in order to stand out in the war for the best procurement talent.
