Diversity Management

  1. 1. DIVERSITY MANAGEMENT Savvy companies recognize the undeniable compeƟƟve advantage in having their workforce reflect the diversity of their community - and the demographics of their marketplace. To achieve a diverse workforce, they set annual targets for the percentage of expenditure dedicated to diversity suppliers. However, many organizaƟons find it hard to meet diversity targets, mainly because the diversity companies are mostly small and privately held. Many of them lack the required infrastructure to acƟvely canvas for business, even from companies with diversity goals. When the goals do not cover second Ɵer spending, this challenge becomes even harder. “ “68.80% of organizaƟons have an established supplier diversity policy, publicly posted” ~CAPS Research, June 2012
  2. 2. U.S. Population Breakdown - 2010 CensusA Strategic Case for Supplier Diversity Ethnic minoriƟes make a large percentage of our workorce, comprising 19% of the overall populaƟon in 2011 according to the Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Standards. AddiƟonally, the earning capacity of minoriƟes is growing exponenƟally, with the combined purchasing power of minoriƟes expected to approach $3 trillion by 2040. Women are also conƟnuing to dominate the workforce at a 58% labor parƟcipaƟon rate in 2010. The purchasing power of women is esƟmated currently at $7 trillion, while 85% of purchase decisions over consumer goods are said to be made by women. Minority-owned businesses are conƟnuing to grow as well, with a 60% growth in African-Amercian owned businesses from 2002 to 2007. In the U.S. today, Asians own nearly 1.5 million businesses. The United States is becoming bigger, older, and more diverse, and companies need to ensure that they are posiƟoned to capitalize on these trends. Supplier diversity is 2011 U.S. Workforce Breakdown - DOL/BLS a crucial way to achieve this goal both in terms of consumers and suppliers. A well-managed supplier diversity program provides businesses insights into the minority consumers’ purchasing paƩerns and preferences along with helping to boost the company profile and image among customers. Many minority-owned businesses are small to medium enterprises, and thus offer disƟnct advantages in their role as suppliers, such as compeƟƟve pricing, greater flexibility, and higher innovaƟon. Diversifying the supply chain offers companies a larger pool of suppliers, leading to an opportunity to harness skills and talent. Many government organizaƟons are increasing their own pracƟce of supplier diversity, and demanding the same from companies in terms of compliance requirements. Developing and implemenƟng a supplier diversity management program will help your company be poised to take White Black Hispanic “ Asian “ advantage of the opportuniƟes from an increasingly diverse marketplace, and allow for meeƟng diversity needs and goals. 65% of respondents sy that supplier diversity is either a mid or high level priority ~Purchasing. com poll, August 2005

As DCR’s core competency is not in staffing, this accomplishment was achieved by forging a strong networkof diversity suppliers and working with veterans’ career centers and online job portals.
