Our highlight this week is the CIPS/Hays Procurement Salary Guide and Insights 2020, which highlights the 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, benefits and to support you and your team’s career journeys.

The 2020 report highlights the skills most in demand now and for the future and the need for professionals to develop their soft skills at the same pace as their technical skills. Enhancing these soft skills will be essential to impact business performance, lead change and raise the profile of the procurement function.
