2020 Reflections: Looking Back to Move Forward

Navigating the Talent Challenge in Procurement and Supply Chain

It’s tempting to enter 2021 with blind optimism, eager to put the challenges of 2020 behind us. However, to learn as much as possible from the adversities we all faced last year, we’d like to suggest that we begin 2021 with a brief period of reflection.

 Rather than making a New Year’s Resolution this year, perhaps more can be achieved by reflecting on the challenges of 2020 and how those experiences will shape 2021 and beyond. The increased pressure on end-to-end supply chain team to deliver essential goods and services, forced rapid learning and adaption to unpresented circumstances.

 Along with focus on supply chain resilience, 2020 brought an emphasis on flexibility, remote work, and employee well-being, creating a lasting positive impact on procurement and supply chain functions around the world.

 What has 2020 taught us? What does the future of the workplace hold for end-to-end supply chain teams? How can employers secure talent in this “new normal”?

 At DSJ Global, these are the questions that have defined our daily conversations with clients, candidates, and our global workforce. Our new report, "2020 Reflections: Looking Back to Move Forward”, examines the lessons of 2020 to help drive success in the year ahead.
