Recently, the true value of a well-constructed, agile supply chain has become blatantly obvious.
Emerging from the global pandemic, which wreaked havoc on the supply chain, our customers now expect a strong bounce back and future planning is more critical than ever. It’s becoming of paramount importance to find and retain the best talent to make sure a business is well-situated for the future.
Organizations are showing an increasing desire for a workforce that can anticipate the future and navigate through ever-changing landscapes. Companies are increasingly emphasizing behavioral competencies when searching for candidates across all levels. Supply chain professionals are experiencing unprecedented head-hunt approaches, and we expect to see demand remain ‘extreme’ – particularly at the Manager to Director level.
We are seeing clients offering rapid career development plans, global mobility at all levels, and in some instances, guaranteed annual bonuses in an attempt to retain talent. We are very pleased to see the U.S. leading the way with regards to gender diversity, with the gender gap at the executive level significantly improving over the past couple of years.
From a Proco viewpoint, in the Americas region we have built a high-performing, client-focused team that is delivering outstanding service to our stakeholders. As demonstrated in our report ‘Future America’ a collection of articles highlighting the key topics that are shaping our sectors in the U.S, we provide in-depth knowledge and understanding to our supply chain audience. We understand the complexities and challenges of this specialist area, given that supply chain is one of the most critical business disciplines in the world today.
Whilst over the last year we haven’t been able to have in-person meetings with our clients, it is essential – in fact, it is a cornerstone of what we do – to build more meaningful relationships. The amazing support of a dedicated research centre enables our consultants to focus on building such meaningful connections.
Our region is currently booming with our team continually breaking monthly records. We have strengthened our capability to do this by deepening our understanding of markets, sectors and available talent so we make the right match between candidates and roles in the specialist area of supply chains. We have a culture of innovation, where each consultant is a true specialist and has a real passion for their sector. Meaning we understand all the variables with our specialist sectors effecting the race for the best talent.
Whether you’re about to begin a search or you are a candidate thinking about your next career move, feel free to connect with myself or any member of the Americas team to see how we can help you, or your business succeed.
We can help you find the best people, for your people.
