Supplier Diversity

Inclusion and diversity have long been a priority at TJX. The value we place on diversity extends into all aspects of our organization, including our supplier relationships.

Our Supplier Diversity Program is dedicated to broadening supplier options for not-for-resale goods and services. Since its inception in 1992, our program has expanded to help provide additional opportunities to businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans, LGBTQ+ individuals, and persons with disabilities. This, in turn, has helped us identify suppliers for mutually beneficial relationships and has helped to promote economic development in our suppliers’ local communities.

In recent years, we have been pleased to expand the program beyond the U.S. into additional regions, adding Canada and the U.K. in Fiscal 2022. In Fiscal 2023, we continued to expand, introducing the program in Germany and Australia. As we bring the program to more regions, we aim to participate in partnerships with regional councils to help us identify certified diverse suppliers in those regions.

Supplier Diversity: Good For Communities. Smart For Business

Our Supplier Diversity program has continued to play a role in our ongoing commitment to inclusion and diversity, helping us cast a wider net when searching for suppliers to support our business. TalentBurst, one such supplier, has been a long-time partner of TJX, helping us with contingent workforce staffing needs.

TalentBurst, a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)1, provides a vast array of workforce management solutions, including contingent workforce staffing, IT and engineering staffing, life sciences staffing, employer of record and agent of record services, and managed services programs. In addition, they support other MBEs, using their diversity co-op program to offer mentorship and guidance.

Like TJX, TalentBurst has inclusion and diversity at its core, and we believe our work together has been mutually beneficial. The two companies have worked on over 100 projects helping TJX achieve its goals and offering TalentBurst opportunities for growth.

“TalentBurst has grown five times what we were when we first started working with TJX. They have been an incredible partner in this growth. We’re proud to share a hometown with TJX and to share mutual success.”
