Supplier Diversity

Supplier Diversity

At Voya, we are building an inclusive supply base to create greater opportunities for Small Business, Minority-Owned, Women-Owned, Veteran-Owned, LGBTQ+ Owned, and Disability-Owned Business Enterprises to provide goods and services to Voya that will help strengthen our supply base and our ability to serve our customers.  

We believe this effort will connect us to the best suppliers in the market and will reflect the diversity of our communities, and the clients and markets we serve.

To learn more about this effort, please read the Voya Financial Supplier Diversity Policy (download PDF).

Voya Procurement Opportunities

Voya procures a set of goods and services that support the operational needs and priorities of our business. Our suppliers provide professional services, technology, and materials including office supplies and equipment. We deploy our internal teams to connect with firms that meet our current operational needs first; and seek to remain attuned to the shifting and emerging business landscape.  

In alignment with Voya’s long-standing culture of conducting business responsibly and ethically, we leverage our supply chain to increase Voya's positive impact on our environment as well as our customers, colleagues and communities. We also work with our suppliers to minimize their environmental impact, which in turn decreases Voya's impact. As such, we have created and implemented a Supplier Diversity Policy (download PDF) and a Responsible Supply Chain Program underscored by our Supplier Code of Conduct

Our goal is to work with suppliers that are aligned with and share our corporate values — to create an inclusive supply chain, operate ethically and responsibly, strive to minimize their own environmental impact, and comply with child labor, health and safety, Voya policies, and other applicable laws and regulations.

Becoming a Diverse Supplier

Voya Supplier Diversity partners with the Voya Strategic Sourcing team and business stakeholders across Voya to understand the company’s operational needs and business priorities. Using a “precision sourcing” approach, we first research, identify, and refer qualified small and diverse-owned business enterprises for active sourcing projects; and seek to remain attuned to the shifting and emerging business landscape.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why register?

Voya uses the small and diverse supplier database to find potential suppliers who can meet their requirements. Completing your profile and keeping it updated will provide buyers with sufficient information to help make qualified decisions about your capabilities.

What information do I need to provide?

Please provide information about your company’s capabilities, products and services, locations, contacts, size, and certifications.

Will this lead to more business from buyers?

Voya relies on the information in the database to be accurate, current, and complete. It is recommended that you update your profile as your information changes, and at least once a year.
