The principal goal of a supplier diversity program is to institutionalize opportunities for small and diverse companies to compete and become a part of the supply chain. However, manual administrative tasks such as tracking and reporting are time-consuming and take away from the important roles of building relationships with suppliers, increasing awareness and accountability, and identifying new and existing opportunities for inclusion. CVM’s new e-book details how collaborating with an experienced supplier diversity partner can help streamline and automate the processes that otherwise bog down enterprises. Among the guide’s features:
- Characteristics of successful supplier diversity programs
- Common challenges businesses face with both new and established supplier diversity programs
- How technology can enhance supplier diversity initiatives
- What to look for in a supplier diversity solution partner
“Companies that expand their diverse supplier bases benefit in innovation, market share, and economic growth,” says Ashlee Nelson, VP of Sales and Innovation for CVM Solutions. “By leveraging best practices, identifying and using the right tools, and collaborating with an experienced partner, enterprises can build a robust, effective supplier diversity program that impacts the diverse business community and supports key strategic objectives. Our new guide provides valuable information to companies considering such a bold step.”
