Low-Cost, High-Impact Solutions to Combat the Supply Chain Talent Shortage

Low-Cost, High-Impact Solutions to Combat the Supply Chain Talent Shortage

An upcoming webinar series will help your business improve its ability to attract, hire and retain top supply chain talent.

This guest post comes from SCM Talent Group, a national supply chain recruiting and executive search firm.

The supply chain discipline has been experiencing a talent shortage that many experts in the field are predicting will only get worse, before it gets better. Baby boomers are retiring rapidly, while the number of qualified candidates coming up through the ranks aren’t enough to close the gap. While macro-level solutions have been implemented, such as the expansion of university supply chain programs, it will most likely take years before any significant progress is made.

A new webinar series, presented by SCM Talent Group, is centered around the talent aspects of the supply chain discipline. The purpose of this series is to provide low-cost, high-impact solutions and advice that employers, hiring managers, and HR partners can implement in efforts to improve their abilities in attracting, hiring, and retaining top supply chain talent.

The first webinar, “Strategies for Sourcing & Recruiting Top Supply Chain Talent,” will take place on November 10th from 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. EST. Participants will learn how to optimize their supply chain recruiting program and processes around industry best practices and discover creative sources and strategies for attracting and hiring candidates for their supply chain job openings.

Future webinars will take place regularly, and cover various aspects of supply chain talent acquisition and talent development, such as:

  •     Create an Employee Referral Program that Drives Results
  •     How to Craft Job Descriptions that Attract Top Supply Chain Talent
  •     Top Employer Branding and Candidate Attraction Strategies
  •     How to Develop a Winning Supply Chain Leadership Development Program

Rodney Apple, founder and president of SCM Talent Group who also serves as the career coach for APICS, will lead these solution-oriented webinars, which will occasionally feature guest speakers.

Through his almost two-decade career in both corporate and executive search environments, Apple has experienced an assortment of supply chain talent acquisition and talent development programs. He will provide informative best practices with the goal of helping employers overcome hiring challenges created by the supply chain talent gap.
