Increasing Diversity Spend in Australia

Increasing Diversity Spend in Australia

KellyOCG® helps a manufacturer boost engagement with indigenous-owned organisations.

To meet evolving corporate responsibility objectives, an international power generation products manufacturer with operations throughout Australia was feeling pressure to ramp up its diversity initiatives. The company recognised that by increasing its spend with recruitment agencies owned and operated by underrepresented groups within the indirect procurement category, it would be closer to achieving those goals. In addition, offering more opportunities for diverse suppliers would support the company’s brand and place it in a better position when bidding on government contracts.

The Company

An international manufacturer and distributor of engines and power generation products has engaged KellyOCG as its MSP provider for five years.

The Challenge

To meet corporate diversity goals, the organisation needed to increase contingent labour spend amongst diverse companies—particularly those owned and operated by indigenous people.

The Solution

KellyOCG developed a plan to engage more indigenous-owned-and-operated recruitment firms and worked closely with them to ensure their success.

The Result

The amount of diverse spend has grown 5% year-over-year.
