Are enough procurement professionals taking account of social impact in their work? Are they risking missing out on innovation?
At the Big Ideas Summit 2016, we challenged our thought leaders to share their Big Ideas for the future of procurement.
From ideas that have the potential to change the very nature of the procurement profession, to ones that got the assembled minds thinking about the profession’s impact outside of the organisation, the response we received was amazing.
Procurement’s Social Impact
Timo Worrall, Senior Category Manager FM EMEA at Johnson & Johnson, talks about J&J’s ‘Social Impact Through Procurement’ programme. The programme is focused on driving job creation and increasing spend with social enterprises.
Timo argues that by engaging with social enterprises, procurement is not only accessing innovation and new suppliers, but giving something meaningful back to communities.
Catch up with all the delegates’ Big Ideas from the 2016 Summit at the Procurious Learning Hub.
