Talent & Knowledge Management: The New Imperative for Procurement Organizations
Thursday, October 16, 2014
With the procurement space continuing to evolve rapidly, managing talent and knowledge within an organization effectively is more critical than ever before. Today’s procurement organizations need to develop a proactive, two-pronged approach to ensure they hire top talent and build a formal knowledge-management program that employs processes to capture and share vital information and prevent it from leaving when turnover occurs.
This webinar will examine vital aspects of managing talent and knowledge, including trends driving changes in the talent landscape and key components for building an effective and robust knowledge-management program.
