Supply chain transformation is a key focus for organizations today.

  • how supply chain leaders can maximize this moment of understanding to close the talent gap
  • the key characteristics hiring managers should look for in employees today, based on Korn Ferry’s digital survey, ASCM’s salary survey and Loyola’s academic studies
