We recognize the importance of having a diverse supplier base that reflects the clients and employees of STAFFusion.
As such, we support and engage relationships with diverse suppliers including woman-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, LGBT, service disabled veteran-owned, historically underutilized business zone (HUBZone), small businesses and other disadvantaged business enterprises.
Registering with the STAFFusion Supplier Diversity program allows us to identify and attract qualified potential new relationships to bring creativity and new ideas that add value to our business as well as our Tier I and Tier II client relationships.
We invite you to register as a diverse supplier. All prospective new suppliers are required to complete this document as a minimum standard for consideration in the sourcing process. This registration does not guarantee your company will automatically be an approved STAFFusion supplier. Our team usually responds in 30 days to your registration.
All diverse suppliers, self-certified or otherwise, must reaffirm their status as a diverse supplier on an annual basis.
Thank you for your interest in doing business with STAFFusion.
