Organisations around the world are increasingly realising the social, economic, and employment impact they can have, through a commitment to incorporating Social Procurement and Workforce Development into their project and process design, and practice.
There are three key ways that organisations and projects can drive social and economic change through procurement practices including:
- Local Social Procurement and Economic Impact Programs
Driving regional economic and social impact through a collaborative approach to strategic procurement
- Workforce Development
Developing and delivering project and program strategies supporting sustainable employment for indigenous, unemployed, people with disabilities and other key community members
- Social Benefit Supplier Purchasing
Supporting enhanced buyer practices and supplier development and access for Indigenous businesses and Social Enterprises
