Their strategy for growth relies on aiding current and new clients in innovation and strategic growth and working with organizations committed to diversity in business.
HireLevel works with several large corporations who have a supplier diversity program, and is continuously pursuing opportunities geared toward innovation in diversity initiatives. In our experience and through the relationships we’ve built, the benefits of working with diverse businesses have shined through.
What is a diverse supplier?
A business that is atleast 51% minority-owned, women owned, veteran owned, LGBT-owned, service disabled veteran owned, historically underutilized business, and Small Business Administration (SBA)-defined small business.
Doing business with diverse suppliers
Supplier Diversity Programs increase revenue $3.6:1M
“On average, supplier diversity programs add $3.6 million to the bottom line for every $1 million in procurement operation costs,” writes Lindsay Clark, referencing a 2015 study by The Hackett Group. The cost saving potential is profound, but many other benefits of working with diverse suppliers are on the horizon. Diverse suppliers are an important thread in the fabric of enterprise business.
