Rethinking supply chain collaboration for a smarter, sustainable future
After two years of unprecedented disruption, Bayer wanted to engage its most valued suppliers in a redesign of how they would collaborate and grow together going forward…with sustainability at the core.
Bayer Supplier Day 2021 brought 1,346 people across 46 countries together virtually to reflect, redesign and reignite collaboration at scale. Bayer’s transformation roadmap was shared openly with the supply chain, emphasising the opportunities for suppliers to engage with Bayer, participate in the transformation and ultimately, grow.
Not only did 74% of attendees ‘see new opportunities to grow’, but an appetite for more virtual experiences was created. Bayer is now restructuring its supply chain collaboration programme to feature more frequent virtual events, large and small, to capture the true power of the community.
What we put in practice during this event will be a blueprint for how we work with our suppliers, both old and new, well into the future.”
