Supplier Diversity

 

Maximising your Business Development and Supply Chain opportunities

 

Accessibility - Launch Recite 

Your Supply Chain and your Workforce are two parts of the

same resource pool.

And just as in your workforce, for many similar reasons, diversity in your supply chain is critical for maximum performance.

 

What Supplier Diversity is

It's simply the ways in which organisations who supply you with goods and services, directly or indirectly, are diverse.  For example, by size, location, ownership/management/employee demography.

 

Why it matters for business performance

Organisations need diversity in their supply chains to 

  • ensure they are getting the best available talent and capability in their supply chains 
  • maximise innovation and creativity
  • meet increasing client expectations on diversity
  • maximise supply chain competition and value
  • gain better knowledge of their marketplace
  • tap niche opportunities
  • support corporate citizenship objectives 

Business Development

Increasingly, organisations are being asked to demonstrate their diversity efforts both internally and in their supply chains on their tenders.  We have helped many business development teams to interpret tender requirements and articulate their current and planned efforts organisation-wide for successful tenders, building in-house competency as we work with them.
