FUTURE SUPPLY CHAIN TALENTS
Supply chain organizations are facing stiff competition from non-supply-chain companies as well as other functions within their own organization in attracting new skills and are faced with a gap for new talent that balances analytics skills and supply chain expertise.
In order to address the changing skills landscape, decreasing talent pool in supply chains, CEL hosts or collaborates with global and local institutional partners to organise Supply Chain Case Competitions for undergrads, postgrads, career starters to attract and prepare more future talents for the industries. At CEL, we believe that competitions offer a chance for participants to gain substantial experience, showcase skills, analyze and evaluate outcomes and uncover personal aptitude, also encouraging contestants to adopt innovative techniques and develop their ideas and skills.
