The business world in crisis and the response from the procurement profession
The world had become dominated by the Covid-19 outbreak with the business world changing in ways that many of us could never have imagined.
So rather than providing commentary on what has happened in the procurement and procurement technology job markets over the previous six months as past editions, this report is slightly different.
Firstly, we focus on sharing some examples of how the procurement supply chain and spend management communities have stepped up to help deal with the crisis with valuable contributions from SAP Ariba, Rosslyn Data Technologies, HICX, C2FO, Risk Methods and Sievo.
Secondly, and not forgetting the history of this publication, we report on the job market trends dating back to our last report in October 2019 and take this commentary up to the point where it became clear that Coronavirus was going to have a significant impact on Europe.
Finally, we report on what we are doing as a business for our clients and how our unique offering is still proving valuable and will continue to do so in the future.
