Our latest salary guide revealed that supply chain professionals with S/4 HANA experience are paid up to 37% more than their peers without S/4 HANA experience.
Hiring across Digital Transformation saw peaks and troughs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic as projects were put on hold in order to comply with strict social distancing regulations. However, the sheer number of companies pursuing digital renovations has now resulted in sweeping demand for professionals. SAP’s S/4 HANA product has seen an extensive 46% growth, helping professionals command greater salaries when searching for a new role.
Matthew Ramos, Supply Chain Management Lead at Uniting Enterprise, said:
“Our findings give us an excellent insight into hiring trends across Supply Chain Management Technology with a clear view that S/4 HANA experience is in high demand. Specifically, process and implementation knowledge surrounding S/4 HANA owe to the number of current projects underway. Sharing this data with professionals seeking work and with employers means we all have a transparent view of where opportunities are and how best to meet demand.”
Matthew expects hiring to remain a challenge in Q4, commenting:
“Although it is excellent to see plenty of opportunities available, experienced talent is limited. We have already seen profound changes within the market this year, and competitive offers declined by leading experts in the field simply because they can cherry pick opportunities. Companies must seriously consider how they will attract and retain candidates for their vacancies to remain competitive.”
