Why Procurement Deserves To Be Your Organization’s One True Love
Millions of people will be expressing their love throughout this entire week by exchanging gifts, flowers, appreciation and affection with their loved ones. Feb 14th or St Valentine’s Day is proclaimed to be a symbol not just for romance but for appreciation of our near and dear ones.
If we think about it, we always make it a point to take the time and efforts in order to showcase our appreciation towards others in our personal life. However, we tend to ignore the efforts of people or teams who have been providing us with the support to succeed in our professional lives.
Why do your procurement team members deserve your unconditional love, just like your significant other?
- They follow rules and make sure you do too
Your procurement team ensures that the items on your organization’s compliance checklist are ticked off. Be it adherence to company policies and regulations or standardization of processes across global locations, procurement is your knight in shining armor!
- They are transparent in their operations
Transparency and visibility across your procurement processes on varying aspects like your spend data or your expiring contracts is a major factor to help you increase savings and reduce cost inadvertently. Your procurement team keeps a track of inefficiencies so you don’t have to!
- They provide a long term partnership
You can trust your procurement team to provide you with the best quality commodities from the best vendors at the best price. “Trust” is one of the major factors which help to form a long term partnership and a long term partner will in turn play a major role in achieving your goal to be the best version of you.
- They support you
You can rely on your procurement team to provide you with unconditional support in order to achieve your objectives. They understand your requirements and take the time and effort required to help you maximize the return on your investment. They are your support system for strategic decisions as well as tactical executions.
- They save money
Last but not the least, something which your significant other might not be the best at, but procurement is well known for. Financial savings is one of the more obvious ways in which procurement makes our life easier.
Today, let’s take a vow to appreciate the similarities & respect the differences of all the people who help us roll through the day and who make our world a better place.
