As it pertains to our goal of tracking Half a Million Jobs Created with Diverse Suppliers, we are confirming that our products and services have helped clients track 136,000 jobs created as a result of corporate purchases with small and diverse suppliers. We are proud of our current pace, and look forward to hitting our goal in the coming year.

More About the Goal

For our commitment, we aim to utilize the supplier.io Economic Impact Report to track half a million jobs created with diverse suppliers annually

How does this benefit the industry? We believe that the definition of a successful supplier diversity and small business program includes more than purchases made with suppliers. Taking the strategy one step further to measure the impact of spend on jobs created and overall GDP gives insight to the industry’s effectiveness on a local, regional, and national scale.
