The coronavirus pandemic has made this question more urgent. Workers across industries must figure out how they can adapt to rapidly changing conditions, and companies have to learn how to match those workers to new roles and activities in their procurement function. This dynamic is about more than remote working—or the role of automation and AI. It’s about how leaders can reskill and upskill the workforce in procurement to deliver new business models in the post-pandemic era.
To meet this challenge, companies should craft a talent strategy that develops employees’ critical digital and cognitive capabilities, their social and emotional skills, and their adaptability and resilience in Procurement. Now is the time for companies to double down on their learning budgets and commit to reskilling. Developing this muscle will also strengthen companies for future disruptions.
This week on October 09, 2020, CPO Innovation organized a tweetchat on Resilience Through Reskilling In Procurement in which our industry experts shared their visionary thoughts on how employees can be retrained to deliver value amid changing customer expectations in the post-covid19 world.
