The benefits available to members will help Business Moves Group (BMG) to achieve its diversity goals through access to the most diverse network of ethnic minority owned businesses (EMBs) in the UK.
Tapping into MSDUK’s global network and knowledge sessions of over 500 procurement professionals, BMG says it will now be in a position to develop a strong supplier diversity programme.
BMG will be able to assess the progress made by its practices with the MSDUK Supplier Diversity Benchmarking tool, engage with the most innovative start-ups in MSDUK’s network, and further future proof the business. BMG’s goal of improving diversity by advancing its supply chain with new ideas, products, and solutions will be aided by the fact that the EMB’s represent more than 30 industry sectors.
Rachel Houghton, MD at BMG, said: “We’ve set ourselves high standards when it comes to achieving diversity goals, and with MSDUK by our side we look forward to expanding our supply chains. The nature of office relocations is that we work across numerous industries, and as such we’re in a unique position to support diverse suppliers throughout the UK.”
MSDUK has worked with over 125 global brands and more than 1,500 EMBs since 2006. Its dedication and support to diversity and ethnicity has seen it secure £735 million worth of business for EMBs. With one in six businesses in the UK minority led, representing over 16 per cent of all SMEs, diversity helps supply chains become more competitive and profitable. Companies with higher-than-average diversity can see a 19 per cent increase in revenue, whilst also taking advantage of an alternate supply chain that brings new solutions and benefits.
