The Future of Work

The past 18 months have reset fundamental aspects of how employers and employees view their relationship. The continued evolution of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) brings with it opportunities to establish a new relationship with your workforce; one rooted in broader aspects of how employees seek out value from their jobs. Join us to understand how ESG and the Future of Work can be achieved in your organization.

Supply Chain

Meeting the short and long-term challenges

Globally we are experiencing the most significant demand / supply imbalance in decades, impacting companies and individual consumers. At the same time, increased focus on ESG has set its sights on supply chains to drive meaningful change on factors impacting the environment. Join us to understand how companies are tackling some of today’s challenges leveraging different analytics and planning techniques while setting a course for improved supply chain sustainability.

The MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics and CSCMP have partnered on an annual report exploring the annual state of global supply chain sustainability. Please take a moment to participate in this 3rd annual survey and share on to other professionals who may be willing to participate. The anonymous survey is available in English, Spanish and Chinese.

Our objective is to survey professionals globally across industries, regions, and positions to get a fuller picture of the state of modern supply chain sustainability. The survey should take 10 minutes or less to complete.
