Philadelphia, PA, November 29, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Leading strategic spend management firm, Source One Management Services announces it will return to the Institute for Supply Management’s Annual Conference as 2017 sponsors and featured speakers during the main event and exclusive sponsors of the premier ExecIn subconference. During ISM2017, emerging leaders from the procurement consultancy will shed light on millennial talent trends impacting the supply management industry in an exciting new session titled: Should I Stay or Should I Go? The presentation will explore the millennial mindset and offer guidelines and advice for a fruitful supply management career path that provides both stability and mobility.
Michael Croasdale, Source One Senior Project Manager and an ISM and Thomasnet.com 30 Under 30 Rising Supply Chain Star will be co-presenting the session alongside Associate Director and Council for Supply Chain Management Emerging Leader Award winner, Diego De la Garza. Croasdale shares; “Millennials receive a lot of flak for their negative stereotypes, such as their dependency on technology and job-hopping – just to name a few. However, these stereotypes are just that: stereotypes. The reality is that millennials bring new skills and characteristics that are redefining the workplace, particularly supply chain management. With exposure to all areas of the business and industries, supply chain management and procurement offer excellent career paths for millennials and employers can absolutely benefit by adding this generation to their supply chain departments. The goal of the session is to highlight how employers and millennials can align for a sustainable, mutually beneficial relationship.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 75% of the workforce will consist of millennials by 2030 creating an imperative for companies to understand the qualities and skillsets millennials can offer beyond the generational stereotypes. Source One’s Should I Stay or Should I Go? session led by two millennials personifying anti-stereotypical qualities of the generation, aims to dispel those traditional preconceptions, and showcase exactly how a career in supply chain management can be fulfilling for the emerging talent.
