The Workforce

The current workforce in Logistics and Supply Chain is facing major changes in the near future as a result of Industry 4.0 and digitization initiatives. Capabilities are challenged, the curriculum of schools and universities is questioned and the attractiveness of existing and new jobs within the Logistics sector are suffering severe competition from other more attractive sectors.  We are working on addressing the relationship between current and future employees (‘millennials’ born after 1982) and the Logistics and Supply Chain sectors to pose the question – what can industry and educational institutes do to counter the challenges ahead?  Because it doesn’t yet exist, research is underway in two areas.  Respondents – please note that both surveys are anonymous.

Survey 1 – Young leaders born between 1982 and 2000 and currently working (all industries, all countries) 

  • Who should respond? Those born 1982 onwards working in logistics and supply chain, covering procurement, planning, warehousing, transport, logistics, etc for both inbound and outbound.
  • Focus – What’s your experience like compared to your expectations? How prepared do you feel to handle the demands of corporate life?

Survey 2 – Students who are finishing their degrees

  • Who should respond? Students currently at university
  • Focus – What are students’ expectations and demands about their jobs and future supply chain careers?

We very much appreciate your help in this exciting work.   Results will be shared in full here.
