What makes a procurement unicorn?
They've got the grades, the qualifications and years of relevant experience. They tick off every core procurement skill in the book and they've worked for some big-name companies.
In short; on paper, they're perfect.
If you're self-proclaimed unicorn hunter, you're probably hoping to fill your entire procurement team with a herd of these mythical creatures. Because you think that's what's best for your business...
And that's where you'd be very wrong. Because in today's world, Unicorn = Uniform!
With this narrow outlook on your recruitment processes, you run the risk of missing out on extraordinary talents.
It's impossible to know the unique skills, experience and perspective that a potential hire can bring to your team if you don't open your mind to their many differences and diversities.
In our upcoming webinar Don't Go Chasing Unicorns we'll be celebrating individuality. Join us on 18th July as we explore how organisations can better accommodate people who are differently abled; whether it's those with physical disabilities or people who are neuro-diverse.
We'll be discussing:
- The importance and benefits of recruiting and retaining differently-abled people to your teams
- Why it is such terrible idea to set your sights on procurement unicorns!
- How procurement pros can help to build truly diverse teams and foster a workplace environment that is inclusive to everyone?
- How are some of the biggest organisations making the workplace inclusive and accessible for everyone?
