Government agencies and many corporations around the United States are required to set aside certain percentages of their budget for diversity qualified vendors. To be a qualified vendor you need the diversity certification, which requires that your business be at least 51% owned and operated by a qualifying diverse group. This includes American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, Hispanic or Latino; Women; Veterans or Service-Disabled veterans of U.S. Armed Forces.
By partnering with a diverse supplier, you can add numerous benefits and advantages that many don’t realize.
Many diverse companies are small business sized, which means they have a niche in their product and services. They are always looking to get better in that one thing they do. This creates healthy competition, different perspectives and backgrounds. Value is very important to a diverse supplier. This speaks to how they do business with others and their company culture. This creates a transparent relationship with who they do business with.
Not only do they provide value, but they are also able to build custom solutions for a business due to their business size. Bigger companies can struggle to find who to escalate issues or concerns to, but with a small business you are able to speak to someone right away. This allows for a seamless process and you know that you are their top priority when you work with them.
