Short description

Introduction Procurement COE

Corporate Procurement is embarking a transformation program, Source for the Stars, to increase its value contribution to the organization. In alignment with business objectives it is our objective to deliver both hard savings and value-add that goes beyond cost reduction. The Center of Operations & Expertise (COE) plays a central role in realizing this objective by improving, automating and conducting processes so that our buyers can focus on activities where they maximize value to the organization: sourcing goods & services and manage contracts & suppliers. Part of the COE activities, we aim to harmonize and professionalize our Supplier Management practices. Supplier Management ensures that we actually materialize the sourcing opportunities and fully leverage the unique capabilities of our suppliers. We decided to initiate a Global Supplier Program to create the right focus, resources and alignment.

Our employees around the world have a strong drive to do things that matter and are commercially obsessed with adding value to those things that matter.
