Stay involved and continue the momentum from home
As the world continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that health supply chain workers are essential for ensuring access to life-saving equipment and products. In the past few months, we have seen organizations across the globe fast-tracking innovative approaches to supply chain workforce strengthening. PtD wants to provide a platform for the organizations to share their innovative approaches so that the entire supply chain community can benefit. At its core, PtD is a knowledge hub for best practices in HR4SCM and we think this is the right time to bring together our community to discuss the changing landscape and process what these changes mean in the long-term for the supply chain workforce.
The next step is to hear from you, the PtD community
To this end, we are opening up our PtD Global Indaba abstracts to include special topics related to the SC workforce and COVID-19 response. We encourage you and your colleagues to submit abstracts that showcase the innovative ways in which you or your organization has addressed the staffing, skills, motivation, and working conditions of your SC workforce. The PtD Global Indaba Steering Committee will review abstracts on a rolling basis.
Organizations are welcome to submit multiple abstracts and indicate in their submission whether they would like their presentation to be considered for the 2021 PtD Global Indaba, for upcoming online events, or for both. Note that we are not limiting abstract topics to COVID-19 response, rather, we encourage organizations to submit abstracts on any HR4SCM topic that they believe could benefit SC practitioners. Abstracts will be accepted until 30 April 2021.
