We seek to attain the highest standards of diversity and inclusion while enabling our customers to do the same.
At ODP Business Solutions, we connect you with entire networks of diverse suppliers who will work directly with you to help you achieve your diversity, equity, and inclusion objectives. We can also help you track your direct and indirect spend for Tier I and Tier II purchases through our own Diverse Supplier catalog — all with simplified, easy-to-use reporting
