About the session.

Most procurement people have been working at home for almost two years and while most initially relished at the “work from home” concept the question is how is it for you NOW?

There have been studies conducted surrounding people’s attitudes to returning to office work post-crisis.  One finding is that a number of buyers have enjoyed working from home enormously. In fact, some don’t want to return to work in a large impersonal office. Others however, are desperate to get back to the office environment. 

Then there are those who had no choice, being let go early in the crisis. A noticeable number took the chance of early-retirement or voluntary severance early in the crisis; or even long-service or unpaid leave. 

Some have used the ‘gift-of-time’ well to acquire new skills or develop thoughts of what they truly want from their career. Some people from non-procurement roles sometimes found themselves redeployed internally into procurement, and now do not want to leave. All in all, there is still opportunity in procurement – even during a crisis. 

For a variety of reasons, not least job retention in a more competitive marketplace, buyers everywhere are now working to develop their personal brand, their resumes and their career development programme all to make themselves a better candidate next time or, just to futureproof their career’s a little.
