As a leading corporate relocation company, SIRVA® maintains an active supplier diversity program and focuses on the advancement of Minority and Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) suppliers through participation in awareness councils, industry organizations and through the award of ongoing business. When client traffic lanes and demographics allow, SIRVA typically directs possible activity to high performing MWBE suppliers.
SIRVA is committed to making sustained good faith efforts to achieve diversity within our worldwide supplier base. Actions include:
- Developing and maintaining bidder’s lists of small, disadvantaged and women-owned business concerns from all possible sources including minority business councils and minority trade organizations in the principal service areas.
- Attending various MWBE trade shows or procurement conferences.
- Ensuring proper notification to small business of subcontracting opportunities.
- Creating data collection methods in order to measure our small business subcontracting utilization.
The corporate relocation business that SIRVA directs to sub-suppliers is primarily comprised of real estate companies, real estate appraisers, van line agents, spouse employment counseling businesses, temporary living businesses, cost of living analysis businesses, real estate inspection companies and home repair and improvement companies. We encourage our suppliers to also utilize subcontractors who qualify as MWBE suppliers.
If you are a corporate relocation services supplier that needs to submit your MWBE certification to SIRVA, please complete and submit SIRVAs Certificate of Compliance per the instructions on the form.
