How to Attract Millennials to a Career in Supply Chain
By: Robert J. Bowman, SupplyChainBrain July 18, 2014
The shift is happening. Baby Boomers are beginning to retire, and Millennials are on the rise. But how to entice them into a career in supply chain?
One way is to recognize excellence in those younger individuals who are already on the job. ThomasNet.com has joined with the Institute for Supply Management to create a 30 Under 30 Rising Supply Chain Stars recognition program. The idea is to highlight accomplishments by high achievers, as well as attract other Millennials job seekers between the ages of 18 and 32 to the field. Joining us on this episode are Linda Rigano, executive director of media relations with ThomasNet, and M.L. Peck, senior vice president of programs and product development with ISM. They describe the 30 Under 30 program, and also talk about how Millennials differ from their predecessors in their expectations of job security and career satisfaction. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
