How do supply chain professionals attract millennials to jobs in the industry?

According to Gartner,

For a generation that has grown up around “cool” brands like Apple, Facebook and Google, careers in supply chain can have limited appeal, especially when it comes to recruiting for positions like data scientists and analytics talent. Chief supply chain officers (CSCOs) predict that failure to attract millennials will be a huge barrier to innovation, especially given the considerable gap between today’s skill sets and those that are likely to be required in three to five years’ time.

Gartner has identified four key strategies CSCOs can employ to attract and retain the best young talent:

  1. Use great internship experiences to attract millennial talent
  2. Create a culture that mentors millennials
  3. Develop career development plans from the start
  4. Give millennial talent access to cross-functional programs
