Somehow, December is one again almost upon us. And with December comes the 2nd Annual (no pressure, Chris…) Supplier Engagement Advent Calendar Challenge.
Regular readers may recall that I featured Chris’ Advent Calendar Challenge last year, and I love the idea so much I wanted to do the same again in 2018. I won’t give away everything (you’ll have to read the article for that), but it just serves as a fun way to drive engagement and trust with your suppliers as the year draws to a close. Check it out in this week’s Must Read:

Have a great weekend!
