HANOVER, Md., May 24, 2023 – Allegis Global Solutions (AGS), the leading provider of global workforce solutions, has introduced a Supply Chain Mentorship Program aimed at elevating selected certified diverse-owned suppliers to be more competitive and better positioned in the managed service provider (MSP) space. During the pilot program in 2022, mentee suppliers saw an average increase in job starts of 64%, an average increase in spend of 27% and a 180% increase in active assignments.
The Supply Chain Mentorship Program is designed to match participating suppliers with customers’ evolving strategic needs in areas such as diverse candidate pools, certified diverse spend and upskilling programs.
“At AGS, we know that the road to greater diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is a journey that needs to be made with intention,” said Cory Hansen, AGS vice president of North America. “The Supply Chain Mentorship Program is one way we’re trying to impact DEI in the marketplace. By providing access and opportunity to suppliers who have demonstrated high degrees of partnership and performance within our programs, we’re able to not only impact their business but also provide greater value to our customers.”
The year-long program addresses areas of impact to supplier success, including:
One of the suppliers that participated in the pilot program, BravoTECH, recently appeared on an AGS’ Subject to Talent podcast to discuss how the mentorship has impacted their success.
“For us, it was really about visibility. As a staffing partner, being able to get in front of the supply chain team and key stakeholders can take a long time – months, maybe years,” said Kristen Lindner, vice president of strategic accounts at BravoTECH. “Being a part of the mentorship program last year gave us access to the relationships that helped us learn about AGS’ portfolio and position us to sell our strengths and what BravoTECH brings to the table for AGS’ customers.”
The mentorship program officially launched in January 2023, with four certified-diverse suppliers participating from across North America: Agility Partners, HireTalent, Omni Inclusive and Primary Talent Partners. Participating suppliers were identified by AGS’ Supply Chain Management (SCM) team in collaboration with several client program offices.
