Findings from The Deloitte Global CPO Survey 2013

The survey results confirm that the war on talent continues to intensify. CPOs believe it is becoming harder to attract talent, yet they want to grow their functions, and there is subsequently more focus on retention.

Key Findings:

  • 50% indicated that the skills and capabilities of their current team are not at a sufficient level to deliver their procurement strategy.
  • Attracting, retaining and training talent all came out as priorities, with 3 out of 4 CPOs rating retaining talent as a top priority.
  • Recruiting talent was seen to be increasing difficult, with 50% indicating this had become more difficult over the past year, while only 13% felt it had got easier.
