Growing supplier diversity.


Amplifying diversity inside an MSP program. We partnered with a leading pharma organization to put diversity at the heart of a new MSP program.

The challenge

Despite a global focus on diversity, the client had zero diversity spend inside a master vendor program served by a single supplier. When KellyOCG was chosen to implement a new managed service provider (MSP) program, the organization wanted to amplify diversity as well as access to great talent.

The solution

As part of the MSP implementation, we carried out supplier optimization, bringing in a number of strong diverse suppliers who could successfully engage the skills our client was searching for.

The result

We now have seven high-performing diverse suppliers in our main supplier group (out of a total of ten) alongside a diverse payroll supplier. Since the start of the program, we have increased diversity spend from zero to 57%.

A strong supplier network.

We were able to call on our strong community of diverse suppliers to add strength and expertise to this US-based program. We continue to onboard high-performing diverse suppliers wherever we identify relevant program gaps. This approach has led to impressive results: countries and categories. Over the last 4 years, our services engagement solution has continued to evolve and deliver impressive outcomes.
