While organisations are starting to recognise the strategic value procurement can offer, it is up to procurement functions to step up and demonstrate their expertise. With 77% of employers struggling to attract talent and increasing use of SOW and non-permanent workers to address skills shortages and hide headcount spend, tackling talent management and the associated supply chain offers procurement professionals the perfect opportunity to prove their strategic worth on a topic plaguing the board room: access to talent.
