10:40 am - 11:00 am Academic Keynote: Collaboration with Colleges and Universities to Attract, Recruit and Retain New Talent

Berrin Guner - Professor and Chair, Department of Marketing/BIS Rowan University
The task of bridging the gap between exiting baby boomers and rising millennials in chemical manufacturing is an overly complicated task, with the older generation transitioning into retirement and only about one quarter of North American chemical companies being able to retain 90% or more of their millennial talent within the first three years of employment. 

Are you armed with sufficient resources to attract and retain supply chain and logistics talent of tomorrow? If not, collaboration with colleagues and universities may be THE solution you are looking for.

Join this session to hear about the Supply Chain and Logistics program at the William G. Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University, as well as internships and new initiatives that can help you recruit your future talent.
