More than one-third of companies plan to hire more supply chain and procurement professionals over the next year on expectations that business activity will increase, according to the Hays Procurement and Supply Chain Market Overview and Salary Guide 2013-2014. "The economic climate has highlighted the need for better procurement practices and organisations want to ensure they have a robust supply chain in place. All of these factors mean the profile of procurement and supply chain continues to increase and professionals are much more visible to senior management," said Hays Director Nicky Taberner.
