The supply chain is hanging out the “Help Wanted” sign. But where will we find the right people?
It’s no secret that businesses generally, and the supply chain in particular, are suffering from a substantial shortage of people willing to fill key positions. The problem affects virtually every job from driving a truck to managing procurement, production, fulfillment and distribution for a multi-billion-dollar corporation. And contrary to some rosy predictions of economic recovery in the months ahead, the job crisis isn’t going to fix itself. On this episode, we talk solutions with Jonathan Wright, managing partner for supply chain and finance transformation with IBM. He discusses how the supply chain can be positioned as an attractive career for young people just coming out of school, as well as the skills they must possess to make it in a world of unprecedented challenges. He also stresses the need for diversity in the supply chain workforce. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
