In the winter issue, we examine the question: Is procurement ‘sexy’ enough for the best new talent? When not all companies can afford lavish benefits, retaining staff can also be a problem. That’s the challenge, but what’s the answer?
We also explore how procurement and finance can bridge the communication gap, how to manage virtual teams and look at what 2011 holds for CPOs.
This issue’s interview is with Richard Porcaro, head of procurement Americas at UBS, who explains how the function has played a key part in the bank’s recovery after the recession.
