At Otis, we are committed to creating an inclusive culture that encourages and celebrates the diversity required to innovate, connect, and thrive in a taller, faster, smarter world. We share this commitment with the companies we employ in our supply base. We are committed to spending at least 20% of our U.S. spend with diverse suppliers.
We work to prioritize diversity within our own organization to ensure that our colleagues are representative of the customers and communities we serve – and we seek to do business with suppliers who share this commitment.
Our supplier definition
We define diverse suppliers as suppliers that are at least 51% owned by an individual or group that is underrepresented—minority (MBE), women (WBE), veteran (VBE), LGBTQ+ (LGBTBE), or disability (DOBE)-owned—a small business, and/or operating in an economically disadvantaged location based on U.S. Small Business Administration definitions.
We are also strengthening our relationship with our existing key strategic diverse suppliers by expanding our scope of services and products with them. We are members of organizations such as the National Minority Supplier Development Council, the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council and Disability IN in support of advancing and developing diverse businesses.
Third Party Certification
For inclusion in our supplier diversity program, suppliers must be certified or approved by the following third-party certification agencies:
