Context for Recruiters

The job market for Recruiters of Supply Chain Professionals remains challenging:

Increasingly demanding jobs requirements:
-Job profiles are hard to write given the increased technicalities of Supply Chain and the constant evolution of functions
-Recruitment budgets and time requirements have significantly shrunk in the last few years
High diversity of candidates:
-Candidates may come from purchasing, logistics, operations, customer service
-Candidates may come from any region and opt to work anywhere
Lack of formal qualifications:
-The true skills of candidates are difficult to assess given the high complexity and technicality of Supply Chain skills and the historic lack of formal qualifications while experience gains can be easily inflated.
As a result, recruiting Supply Chain professionals is a very inefficient process.

News and knowledge

There is a very interesting WHITE PAPER by the M.I.T entitled "ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE SUPPLY CHAIN TALENT CRISIS?" BY KEN COTTRILL who is a GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS CONSULTANT at the MIT CENTER FOR TRANSPORTATION & LOGISTICS


ABSTRACT:Supply chain faces a severe shortage of talent at a time when the demands on the profession have never been greater. Globalization, market uncertainty, shifting demographic patterns, and the emergence of supply chain as a strategic function are some of the factors that are driving the skills shortfall. The industry can build an adequate supply of talent in a number of ways, but companies must be more proactive in their approach to recruiting, developing, and retaining the supply chain professionals they need to stay competitive.

What is the most important value in work for Generation Y?
They’re savvy, confident, upbeat, open-minded, creative and independent, which makes them a challenge to manage. To meet their demands for more learning opportunities and responsibility ownership, instant feedback, greater work-life balance and stronger workplace relationships, companies must alter their culture and management approaches, while continuing to respect the needs of older employees.

What is a common misconception about what Generation Y looks for in work?
Young people are natural team members who expect back-and-forth interaction rather than command-and-control disciplines. The baby boomers were satisfied with knowing what decision was made, but today’s young employees want to know why. They’re not insubordinate — they just recognize that understanding the reasons behind the decision can make the difference between success and failure in implementation.

Technology is everywhere. Is there a drawback to too much technology?
If there is a drawback, it hasn’t appeared yet. Because of technology, young people are learning, playing, communicating, working and creating communities very differently than their parents. They are a force for social transformation. The main interest of young people is not technology, but what can be done with that technology. I think they are smart, they have great values, they know how to use collaborative tools, and that they are well equipped to address many of the big challenges and problems that my generation is leaving them.
