human factor


How prepared is your business to attract, retain and nurture the modern-day procurement professional as well as part of the overall effort of optimising your procurement operating model?

How can procurement teams enhance their operating models to achieve optimum value? What more can they do to attract and retain the modern-day procurement professional in this increasingly technological world? How can they develop the skills and nurture this talent?

Join us at the launch event of our annual research study, conducted in partnership with Cranfield School of Management. This year’s research will explore how a more tech-savvy, collaborative and strategically-minded future procurement workforce will ultimately require a reshape of organisational design, and serve as much as a driving force of transformational change to the procurement function, as technology itself. 

Simon Whatson, Principal at Efficio will open the evening's discussion with a presentation of the survey findings. This will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on key themes. 

The event will provide great opportunities to network with like-minded procurement professionals before and after the debate.

About the survey

As part of this research, we have interviewed 500 respondents, representing senior procurement professionals, such as CPO/Head of Procurement/Procurement Director level, across different sectors and split evenly across the UK, US, Germany, the Nordics and Middle East.

This event is open to senior procurement professionals. We have a limited number of spaces available so register your attendance as soon as possible to guarantee your place.
