We’re hosting a webcast on August 29 at 1 pm ET. This one covers the topic of Growing Purchasing Influence On Indirect Spending. Please join us!

At world-class companies, purchasing’s influence touches just about every area of spending. But, how exactly do procurement teams get to the point where other departments approach them for help with sourcing such indirect categories as human resources benefits, advertising and marketing and legal? Using cross functional teams, sharing benefits of strategic sourcing and promoting positive outcomes are just some methods. In this webcast, procurement leaders will share their experiences at growing their influence on indirect spending. 

Presenters are: James Niemiec, Vice President, Global Categories, Global Procurement at Hewlett-Packard Company, and Jason Kwan CPO, Global Strategic Sourcing at Manpower Inc.

For a sneak peek at what to expect, please listen to our podcast interview with HP’s Jim Niemiec. It’s on our homepage.
