Emerging Cost Reduction Leaders from Source One Explore Millennial Supply Chain Talent Management at ISM2017
Willow Grove, PA (November 30, 2016) – Source One Management Services is pleased to announce the leading cost reduction and procurement consultancy will return to the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Annual Conference happening May 21-24 in Orlando, Florida, as featured presenters and sponsors of the main event, as well as the exclusive sponsor of ISM’s executive subconference ExecIn. As featured speakers of ISM2017, emerging leaders from the strategic sourcing and cost reduction consultancy will be presenting a new session titled: Should I Stay or Should I Go? exploring millennial talent trends impacting the supply management industry. The presentation will offer insight into the millennial mindset and advice for a rewarding career in supply chain management.
Source One Project Manager and 30 Under 30 Rising Supply Chain Star Winner, Michael Croasdale will co-present the session alongside Associate Director and Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals’ Emerging Leader Award Winner, Diego De la Garza. “The list of millennial stereotypes is seemingly endless. They’re job-hoppers, dependent on technology, entitled – just to name a few. The truth is, these are just over generalizations that do not actually define a generation.” explains Croasdale. “In reality, millennials offer unique skillsets and characteristics that are reshaping the workplace, particularly supply management. With exposure to countless industries and a wide range of business functions, supply management offers fantastic career opportunities for millennials and employers can absolutely benefit by adding this group of talent to their supply chain departments. Our session aims to show how employers and millennials can align for a prosperous relationship -one that enables organizational success and a fruitful career.”
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that 75% of the workforce will consist of millennials by 2030. As this generation continues to rapidly populates the workforce, companies must take action in understanding the skillsets millennials offer. Source One’s ISM2017 Should I Stay or Should I Go? session, led by two millennials actively disproving the generational stereotypes, aims to challenge those traditional misconceptions and share how a supply chain management career path can be fulfilling for the growing talent group.
