How working in supply chain has become attractive again

After playing a vital role out of the spotlight for many years, the supply chain industry has all of a sudden taken the centre-stage in recent times. It’s not just the extra media attention, extensively covering global logistic challenges and the occasional food shortage. These days, the sector is also attracting top talent who is looking for exciting careers. 

Over the past couple of years, FPGSC has been growing its data and analytics capabilities and is recruiting experts with special knowledge in the field. A growing number of clients demand insights into the flow of goods, as well as consumption and distribution patterns, which FPGSC’s Supply Chain Operations Centre (SCope) is able to provide. For the company, it’s no longer just about competing in the physical space, but also in data and technology.

The fight for talent is real. As logistics firms won’t be able to pay the salaries of the tech giants, it comes down to a vision and sense of purpose in order to persuade the best. FPGSC aims to create an environment where people can try and fail, where they are able to make critical decisions, and innovate to achieve creative solutions on their own.

The teams have the freedom to plan, to develop projects, to find innovations that improve productivity. Over the past few months, they have taken different actions that strengthened crisis management in these difficult times. These have not just helped the organisation but also provided a strong sense of accomplishment. 

A lot depends on culture, the way in which a team works together in a family-like atmosphere, which eventually will determine success, and if someone joins or stays. Values such as service excellence and integrity are highly important. 

Safety, another of FPGSC’s core values, has to come first. It is at the heart of the firm’s business and operations that is striving to achieve top service for its customers. There’s on one side the physical safety, making sure that nobody gets hurt or injured while doing physical work. And second the psychological safety, that allows employees to be free to speak up and voice their concerns.

If people have trust, it can unlock the energy of any organisation, and that will help to exceed any expectations.
