Procurement for Good

April 20, 2017

Social enterprise, The WildHearts Office, is supporting Responsible Business Week with its 'Procurement for Good' lunch on 27 April in Bristol.

During the lunch, a discussion around how social enterprises like WildHearts Group can help companies to align with BITC's responsible business priorities and help attract customers and future talent. The talk will also include a case study from Deloitte, highlighting how their procurement overheads are helping to produce pioneering work that is positively impacting social mobility in the UK, using WildHearts Group enterprise education programme, Micro-Tyco to drive major social value outcomes.

WildHearts Office offers 35,000 products, competitive prices, outstanding customer service and funds the work of the WildHearts Foundation . The enterprise enables  customers - who include global brands such as Deloitte, Johnson & Johnson and Serco - to make a positive social impact, both at home and abroad, through simply purchasing their business supplies. Their business ethos continues through to their social impact: from funding micro-loans for poor entrepreneurs in the developing world to helping young people at home develop business and employability skills and gain work experience, apprentices and jobs through Micro-Tyco. The multi-award winning Micro-Tyco programme delivers inspiration, knowledge and networks to unleash entrepreneurial talent in schools, universities and companies. Over 40,000 people across 21 countries have taken part to date.
