Allegis Global Solutions (AGS) was named a DIAMOND supplier at the General Motors (GM) 2017 Supplier IMPACT Awards ceremony on May 4, 2017. The ceremony honours suppliers that share the same economic vision as GM with regards to the inclusion of qualified diverse suppliers (i.e. minority and women owned businesses). AGS was one of only two providers named a DIAMOND supplier out of the 50 suppliers recognised. This is the second consecutive year AGS has been named a DIAMOND supplier, the awards’ highest distinction.

DIAMOND suppliers are those who excelled in all three key areas:

  • Reported top diversity spend in 2016
  • Met or exceeded the performance goal of 8%
  • Committed to a strategy with significant performance improvement year-over-year

Julie Planko, North American Director of Operations, AGS commented:

“It is a key strategy here at AGS to continue to elevate our efforts around supplier diversity.  We take an active role in coaching and mentoring our diverse suppliers to ensure they are set up for success!  We are excited to have received this award as we truly value our partnership with GM and our diversity suppliers.”

Erica Bender, North American Operations Manager, AGS commented:

“In the midst of being recognised with this tremendous award from GM, we are continuing to remain laser-focused on achieving and exceeding our diversity goals.  We recognise the importance of supplier diversity, and value and nurture our relationships with our diverse staffing company partners.  We greatly appreciate this recognition and will look forward to furthering our partnership with GM on supplier diversity.” 

Donna Gilmer, Supplier Diversity Programme Manager, GM commented:

“GM is proud to work with AGS who has excelled in their Supplier Diversity programme and who has worked hard to impact their company’s supply chain with certified, innovative diverse suppliers.”
