Inquiring minds: Does sustainability have an effect on your job role?
The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) offers its Sustainability Survey report for the answer.
Does sustainability have an effect on your job role or on the operations of your supply management organization? View summarized responses from supply management professionals on how their companies define sustainability in the recently released results of an Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Sustainability Survey.
The report, Sustainability Impacts Supply Professionals' Decisions and Supplier Relationships , is available for PDF download from the Research page on ISM's Sustainability and Social Responsibility Web site.
ISM's Sustainability Survey was conducted in late 2007, questioning participants on how companies define sustainability; the level of company support for each of the sustainability; social responsibility principles; and the effects of sustainability on the supply management organization, its job roles and responsibilities.
ISM believes the supply management profession is a strategic contributor in the development and implementation of sustainability and social responsibility programs and behavior. ISM

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
