On the evening of December 13, EIPM honoured the best Purchasing Organisations, by another successful ceremony devoted to the EIPM Peter Kraljic Awards.
This year, 8 winners were selected amongst the companies that engaged in the competition for the 2012 EIPM awards. These recipients are a select few chosen from purchasing organisations worldwide. They are recognized for the excellence of some of their practices in these challenging times, when Procurement and Supply Chain play a crucial role for companies worldwide.
On this edition, each award category rewarded the exceptional accomplishment of procurement teams in key areas such as Talent Management, Value Creation, Risk Management, Supplier Relationship Management, Sustainable Future and Process Management, as well as the acknowledgement of outstanding overall performance to the Organisation of the Year.
Peter Kraljic accepted to associate his name to the EIPM Awards, because like EIPM, he strongly believes these prizes contribute to the visibility and external recognition Procurement Organisations deserve.
