As explained by Brian Barry of Multichannel Merchant, millennials make a growing cross-section of the American labor force. Ignoring this generation is impossible and attracting millennials in the supply chain is an even bigger hurdle.
Since e-commerce has flooded the industry with more orders and stringent delivery expectations, supply chain leaders must think outside the box to attract and retain the next generation.
In fact, millennials will make up more than 75 percent of the workforce by 2025, so it is time for supply chain executives and leaders to enact the changes necessary to guarantee success in both the current and future supply chain.
Freelancing refers to a type of self-employment where you deliver your services to clients on a project basis.
The concept goes as far back as the 1970s when skilled workers had to be sourced from different places to complete large-scale projects. In 2020, around 59 million people in the United States were involved with freelance work, and the number continues to rise today.
Internet connectivity and the availability of various freelancing platforms have also made this work arrangement more popular and accessible.

Our fundamental objective at Supply Chain Game Changer is to share experiences and expertise and lessons learned. As such we have focussed on curating a wide range of content and resources that will have relevance to anyone at anytime no matter what their needs may be.
We began our Seasoned Leadership in Action™ Interview series in support of our objective to share experiences and expertise. And hearing from Industry leaders in this interview format has proven to be incredibly popular.

Information Technology is the use of machines to help store, process, and transmit information. The term IT is most often used to refer to the computers and peripheral equipment necessary to run an organization’s data processing operations.
The term can also refer to the organization that operates such equipment or provides computer-related services. Information technology is quite popular in the modern world, and that is clear with the spike in the number of people applying for various IT courses and an IT career.
Choosing the right career path and sticking to it has never been more difficult. In eras gone by, there were select few careers to choose from, and when you started your first job on one path, you would likely stick to that industry (or even business) for the rest of your working life.
Although this sounds limiting – and it was – the lack of choice made it easy to decide which path to choose, and you didn’t have the agony of deciding whether to risk it all by changing occupations at certain points along the road.
The supply chain talent crisis is a significant problem that will cause widespread disruption in the industry. More workers are retiring, and there are just not enough members from the newer generations interested in the industry.
However, demand for more products, faster and at lower costs is increasing, so supply chain executives need to start thinking about how they can prepare for and respond to the current and forthcoming supply chain talent crisis.
