Our clients are the world’s leading brands, and they count on us to provide a strong, efficient and best-in-class supply chain. Our mission is to deliver big impact for these clients across the globe through our network of expert strategic partners while helping to support our partners’ business growth objectives. As the procurement leader in our industry, we have strategic relationships with over 8,000 suppliers across the world in multiple product categories and we manage an unrivaled +$2B global spend on behalf of our clients.
This year, we are proud to be honoring our strategic partners with the inaugural HH Global Strategic Partner Awards. These award events are being held all over the world to recognize the global impact our strategic partners make, with regional ceremonies taking place in Chicago, Mexico City, London, Hong Kong, Prague and São Paulo.
As a business, we partner with key strategic suppliers to create mutually beneficial relationships. Our strategic partner program offers our suppliers targeted growth opportunities with some of the world’s largest brands and expert consultancy to help them enhance their performance. The Strategic Partner Awards are about recognizing the contributions that our suppliers have made and celebrating their high-performing businesses.
“The Strategic Partner Program is an essential part of our business which delivers a range of benefits to our partners. It helps them improve their effectiveness and gain greater visibility of their business performance and provides them with access to best-in-class technology.” Robert Gill, Vice President, Strategic Sourcing, North America at HH Global
Suppliers are selected for recognition based on several criteria and voted on by our regional strategic sourcing teams and client services community in seven different categories – POSM, branded merchandise, direct mail, commercial print, packaging, innovation and sustainability as well as the Strategic Partner of the Year in each region.
“The Strategic Partner Program is a focus by HH Global to work with the best suppliers that we can globally. That’s important because, without great suppliers, we can’t grow our business. They’re a key part of our supply chain.” Paul Buchan, Strategic Sourcing Business Director, EMEA at HH Global.
Through the program, we are committing to helping our strategic supplier partners grow their businesses sustainably. We share supply chain best practices, processes and optimization as well as help them meet the growing demands for sustainable performance.
In July 2023, we will be launching another benefit of our Strategic Partner Program – the Supplier Insight Program (SIP) – to help us understand how we can mutually improve our partnerships and become more aligned for growth. Our Supplier Insights team will be formally interviewing key strategic partners to learn more about their business, processes, goals and challenges and to gather feedback on HH Global and the way we work together.
