About the Content

Chicago-based industries including Agriculture, Construction Materials, Food Processing, and Manufacturing have a long history of regulatory oversight, reputation issues, price fluctuation, and a heavy reliance on contractors and suppliers. As suppliers increasingly make up more of the workforce, finding qualified workers is increasingly difficult.

With the majority of high-risk work being done by contractors, today more than ever, companies need to source safety-compliant workers to protect company reputation, accelerate business growth, and promote a safety culture. To accomplish these goals, organizations need relationships built on a foundation of trust.

Discussion Topics

  • Increasing visibility across the supply chain
  • How to proactively minimize major risks
  • Building a culture through strong leadership and employee engagement
  • How to refine your contractor management ecosystem and improve supplier performance
  • Best practices for building trust, engaging, monitoring, measuring, and evaluating your suppliers more efficiently
