The Boston SIGnature Event will take place Thursday, November 9, 2017 from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm and is focused on global issues and successes related to talent management.
SIGnature Events are one-day conferences for Fortune 500/Global 1000 sourcing professionals and include a delegate breakfast, a live peer-to-peer roundtable, buy-side executive presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities. SIG is partnering with Allegis Global Solutions to facilitate this event, which will be hosted at Iron Mountain.

Specific sessions will be held on talent as the foundation of success; supplier management strategies; the growth of the labor market; a future look into the northeast workforce market; and driving productivity through competency alignment.
This SIGnature Event will also feature a series of rotating roundtable sessions with smaller groups of delegates discussing the topics such as how to improve and drive efficiency in the procurement process, the best way to optimize supply chains and how companies are rethinking the way work gets done.
“SIGnature Events are incredible opportunities for our members to learn from others and make local connections that they can rely on for peer feedback and benchmarking,” says Stephani McGarry, Chief Engagement Officer, SIG.
