Hampshire-based recruitment agency Procurement Heads has announced the latest of its strategic partnerships with B2B marketplace Kaleida.
Hayley Packham, Operations Director at Procurement Heads, said, “We are delighted to be partnering with such a forward-thinking organisation as Kaleida.
“Equality, diversity and inclusion are embedded into our DNA and one of our core business pillars.
“We firmly believe in equality for all and have pledged to continue attracting a workforce that reflects this, not only for ourselves but for the clients and candidates we engage with.
“Our partnership with Kaleida will develop upon this and enable us to encourage organisations we support to really think about the diversity in their supply base.
“The platform Jason has created is incredibly powerful and, with his passion for this highly important subject, we know our partnership will flourish.”
Kaleida, which was founded by Jason Roberts in 2019, connects buyers to diverse suppliers and helps procurement functions achieve their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals while alerting supplier companies to new revenue opportunities.
Finding diverse suppliers is time-consuming and currently involves researching against multiple databases, something compounded in the UK, EMEA and ASIAPAC regions by the fact that the data simply does not exist.
Kaleida’s fully inclusive platform is a golden source of data.
Jason Roberts, CEO and Founder of Kaleida, said, “Driving successful supplier diversity initiatives requires leadership and partnership.
“I have seen the excellent work Procurement Heads do for many years now and through their commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, sustainability and thought leadership see them as a leading force in this space.
“The synergies between Kaleida and Procurement Heads’ shared missions strongly align, meaning that a strategic partnership between the two organisations makes perfect sense.
“I believe that for equality to be achieved, and equity distributed without prejudice or discrimination, exclusive truly cannot be inclusive.
“So, I am thrilled with our new partnership as we continue, together, to spread the message about the power of supplier diversity to a wider audience.”
