Recommended Procurement Webinars for May 1 - 5: A Tight Talent Market and Our Volatile World
It’s May. Aaaaaaaaah! Seriously, though, that means the clock is ticking on the official start of the summer work season (I date mine from the Friday before Memorial Day). I fully expect webinars to continue strong through the summer months, and there are already a couple of June in person events as well. Click on the title of each webinar below to view the full description and register.

For a while now, procurement has been using contingent/temporary labor providers to deal with uncertain demand and hard to find talent. Now, however, demand for these flexible models has increased to the point where competition for top or specialized talent is rising there too. In this webinar, PeopleFluent will talk about the benefits of increased visibility into multiple talent pools to meet demand.

If you want to hear a really bright group of speakers talk about a critical issue – supply chain volatility – this is the event of the week. The Hackett Group, riskmethods, POOL4TOOL, and Lexis Nexis will come together to represent the many viewpoints (and solutions) necessary to manage the supply chain given today’s realities. The highlight will no doubt be Patrick Connaughton’s review of new Hackett Group research, but Bill DeMartino (riskmethods) and Edda Rottscheidt (Lexis Nexis) will add a critical data/intelligence perspective.
