nDemand Consulting, a Charlotte consulting & talent acquisition group for the public and private sector, has recently announced the commencement of its vision to partner with large corporations that foster supplier diversity and inclusion. The vision of the company is to provide businesses with an opportunity to foster growth by providing equal employment opportunities to all. With nDemand Consulting’s new step towards partnering with companies practicing supplier diversity, it aims to help businesses stay innovative, cater to the demands of the diverse public, and enhance financial performance.
According to Melissa Lauber from the Village Life Company, a non-for-profit entity creating content for social justice, "Organizations which excel at leveraging diversity (including the hiring and advancement of women and nonwhite men into senior management jobs, and providing a climate conducive to contributions from people of diverse backgrounds) will experience better financial performance in the long run than organizations which are not effective in managing diversity."
Supplier Diversity Programs
A supplier diversity program allows businesses to work more ethically and promote equal opportunities for all diverse groups. Diverse groups comprise of minority, woman, disabled veteran, or GLBT community member. Businesses predominately owned or controlled by members of this diverse group, have the opportunity to be certified as such by a third party. By keeping in stock information including the diverse supplier’s organizational ownership, sales volume, clear and concise product/service synopsis, customer references, certification documentation and accolades received, a good supplier diversity program can help provide potentially fitting procurement options for registered clients / diverse group businesses.
“To keep our company and communities growing strong, we source from the widest and the best base of suppliers” believes Kellogg’s Company, USA. “It’s all part of our Supplier Diversity Program. By strengthening our diverse procurement relationships with W/MBE-owned, -controlled and -operated businesses, we can help each other achieve long-term success. So together we can all keep going — above, beyond.”
