The Bartholomew Group (BG) is a strategic communications firm that specializes in promoting diverse suppliers. We partner with emerging businesses and organizations helping them evolve, promote, and protect their brand reputations.
A unique consultancy, BG focuses on translating cutting-edge supply chain issues and opportunities into appropriate language, metrics, and actions that allow small and diverse businesses to stay informed and make improved decisions in today’s challenging economic environment.
Leading corporations use supplier diversity programs to strengthen their supply chains.
This proactive business practice provides companies owned by ethnic minorities, women, LGBT individuals, and/or service disabled veterans with equal access to contracting opportunities. Supplier diversity programs benefit corporations because they:
- Promote innovation through the entrance of new products, services, and solutions
- Provide multiple channels from which to procure goods and services
- Drive competition between the company’s existing and potential vendors
- Allow a company to take advantage of new opportunities for business expansion with the emergence of new consumer needs based upon shifting demographic realities
- Demonstrate an organization’s commitment to doing business, beyond consumerism, in diverse markets
- Showcase the company’s interest in and commitment to the economic growth of all communities
The Bartholomew Group strives to offer our clients a truly integrated network and holistic approach in everything we do—whether it’s cultivating stakeholder relationships, developing thought leadership platforms, creating digital strategies or breakthrough ideas that translate across cultures.
We work to develop the brand messages and to influence the procurement decisions to match our client’s products and services with the people who need and want them. We leverage our professional network to increase brand visibility in the marketplace and are most known for quick responses to changes in strategy or direction, full service capabilities, media relations, meeting deadlines, and keeping promises.
BG contributes to the long term capability of our clients by helping them to build strong relationships with their customers, constituents, and stakeholders. Also, we offer our clients better insight into the structure of the work we do, which can ultimately lead to better value and efficiencies through streamlining resources, best practice sharing, and enhanced team integration and collaboration.
