When you choose Birwood, we can help you bring your organization’s diversity initiatives to life – whether you want to modify your workforce composition, meet the demands that exist outside due to tier one or two supplier requirements, or dovetail with your public relations goals. Now more than ever, many of your customers will monitor your MBE spend as part of your company’s performance, so engaging MBEs is good for business – yours and theirs.
Improving your diversity content
Our team works with you to understand your diversity goals. If you’re unsure where to start, we can help you define initiatives that will lead to fulfillment of spend targets.
Because Birwood has established relationships with all major carriers, some or all of your employee benefits and commercial insurance premiums can be converted to MBE spend—while you remain with your current carriers. We also can connect you to other diverse vendors in the risk management, employee benefits and human capital industries, as needed.
Procurement recognition support
We understand supplier diversity programs are created to accomplish a wide variety of goals. As such, the requirements of how spend must be recognized are equally varied. Our procurement recognition process is flexible and ensures we are aligned with your goals:
- Approved certificate: We can provide you with our approved certification from the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC).
- Client services agreement: We provide you with a client services agreement detailing the work to be performed.
- Premium remittance: When required, we can ensure necessary premium or other fees are remitted in a fashion that complies with your procurement guidelines.
At Birwood, we are committed to creating strong relationships with diverse businesses in the risk management, benefits and human capital industry. By partnering with diverse suppliers, we provide opportunities for our clients and communities.
