Supplier Diversity

Pitney Bowes Supplier Diversity Program

Pitney Bowes is committed to growing our business using diverse suppliers. We believe diverse businesses enhance our global supply base, providing innovative strategies and solutions while meeting or exceeding expectations in the areas of cost, quality, and delivery. We work to encourage opportunities for these businesses to be considered as potential suppliers, with a specific focus on:

  • Minority (including African American, Hispanic American, Asian American/Asian Sub-Continent, Native American, Alaska Native)
  • Women-Owned Small/Large
  • Veterans, Service-Disabled Veterans
  • Small Businesses
  • Small Businesses located in a Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone)
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBTQ+)
  • Economically Small Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB)
  • Americans with Disabilities

In order to be successful, Pitney Bowes partners with supplier development organizations with a focus on the growth and sustainability of diverse businesses. That is accomplished by participating in a variety of supplier development events throughout the year. Through these partnerships Pitney Bowes connects with potential suppliers through match-maker events.

As an example, Pitney Bowes has played an active role in the financial development of women’s business enterprises through the WeTHRIVE program hosted by WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise National Council).

Pitney Bowes has also partnered with the Connecticut Supplier Connection to provide small and diverse suppliers based in Connecticut with resources to increase opportunities.

Supplier Diversity Qualification and Certification

Pitney Bowes expects all suppliers to meet high standards of product and service quality. To be considered as a Pitney Bowes supplier, diverse businesses are encouraged to register on the Connecticut Supplier Connection. The Connecticut Supplier Connection is a collaboration with several corporations and is a portal that is accessed by our organization to identify potential suppliers to partner with. By using the portal, diverse businesses have the opportunity to be discovered/searched by multiple member companies that use the same platform.

We highly encourage diverse suppliers to seek certification from a certifying agency such as:

  • National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA)
  • National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)
  • Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
  • Small Business Administration (SBA)
  • National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)

We also accept certification by federal, state, and local governments in the United States.
