Procurement is no longer just about cost. Professionals should be looking put their organisation’s social impact at the heart of purchasing decisions.
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.
Increase Social Impact
Hugh Chamberlain, Commercial Procurement Lead at Johnson & Johnson, challenged procurement professionals to buy from social enterprises in his Big Idea.
Buying from social enterprises allows procurement to add value to society, as well as meet CSR requirements. Hugh argued that buying social can also give buyers immense personal satisfaction, and a feeling they are making a real difference.
