Procurement and supply chain

Procurement of goods and services and supply chain relationships all involve workers whose efforts help advance the retaining organization’s work. Contractors often work alongside organizational staff; they are the extended workforce. The ability to influence those relationships is real, and allows an organization to use best efforts to ensure that non-staff workers are treated with dignity. A misalignment of treatment between contract and other supply chain staff and direct staff can degrade trust in values stated. Finally, goods and services purchased with a dignity-mindset can deepen the intention around inclusion and broader commitments to under-served communities.
