Procurement People are pleased to announce the charity that we will be supporting and raising funds for in 2017 will be Rethink Mental Illness. In partnership with our sister businesses in Executive Network Group; The HSE Network and Network HR Recruitment, we will be holding various event fundraisers to support this very important cause.
As a recruitment business, we here at Procurement People have been following the recent information released regarding the BBC salaries with a lot of interest – in particular the disparity between the organisation’s male and female stars. Working in recruitment, we end up discussing salaries, packages and promotions more than most, and it made us consider our own insight into the Procurement market and what can be done to impact the battle for equal pay for equal work.
With the birth of a brand new and globally recognised standard ISO 20400:2017 (Sustainable Procurement) this is an exciting change and a real opportunity for organisations to showcase their commitment to sustainable sourcing. Not only that, but it will be a great tool moving forward for companies evaluating their supplier base to ensure they share the same values and commitment as they do. Balfour Beatty is leading the way as the first company globally to be assessed ISO standard.
