Be more prepared and knowledgeable when it comes to managing relationship with your suppliers.

We have had clients hire candidates we supplied this year, and seem surprised that a fee comes with the service.

Others acknowledge our service but "forget to pay"

The reality is every industry has issues, especially in a Covid year.

Here my 9 pieces of advice that help improve supplier relationships:

  1. Be proactive.

  2. Communicate regularly and effectively.

  3. Establish roles and responsibilities and remember them.

  4. Understand the contractual obligations.

  5. Behave ethically and honestly at all times.

  6. Regularly review the deliverables and performance.

  7. Identify and monitor risks.

  8. Be reasonable and fair

  9. Seek professional advice if a party chooses to disrespect matters
