Social value for the supply chain

Virtual workshop

Delivering and demonstrating social value has become an essential activity for suppliers to public sector since the emergence of the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012, ensuring that contractors have become a key investment partner in communities.

In the past, corporate social responsibility (CSR) was seen as a ‘nice to have’, but now it is essential to win business with some of the largest purchasing organisations in the country.

This workshop focuses on how supply chain organisations can develop their social value strategies to better meet the needs of their potential clients, and to understand where it fits within their business.

The session will focus on:

  • What social value means, and the implications for the private sector
  • How procuring organisations develop strategies to assess social value in tenders 
  • How future changes to the legislation will affect organisations
  • Effectively demonstrating the impact of social value work
  • Embedding social value into operations to reduce ‘add on’ costs when bidding.

The workshop will be run by Barry Malki, one of the country's leading experts in Social Value procurement.
