Innovation Forum: Webinar - Procurement and social risk: How to make modern slavery a business priority

From: 13.02.2019 To: 13.02.2019 Share

Innovation Forum would like to invite you to a complimentary webinar: ‘Procurement and social risk: How to make modern slavery a business priority’ 
Through an hour’s interactive discussion with BT and Total, we’ll discuss how industry leaders have achieved genuine engagement around modern slavery with procurement officers.
Sign up here.
The webinar will take place on 13th February from 14.00-15.00 GMT. If you can’t make the time, sign up anyway and we’ll send you a recording.
The holy grail is to ensure social risk is as high up the priority list as any other issue for procurement professionals. This webinar will assess how current and emerging legislation is affecting that priority list, and look at the best techniques to engage procurement professionals beyond basic compliance.
We will discuss:
  • The key elements to getting procurement on board and engaged in modern slavery risk
  • The good and the bad: What impact can procurement functions have in pushing the modern slavery agenda?
  • How emerging legislation is impacting procurement practices for international businesses
  • The money question: Does it always come down to factoring social risk into pay incentives?
  • Tony Roy, head of governance and sustainability, BT 
  • Christophe Sassolas, director global procurement, Total 
  • Additional speaker TBC 
Hosted by Ian Welsh, publishing director, Innovation Forum 
There will be a live Q&A throughout, so you will have the opportunity to post your questions directly to the speakers.
Once again, you can register for the webinar here.
