Above & Beyond News from The Common Source | July 2010
 In today’s business climate, securing diverse suppliers is a key element to the continued success that drives competition and delivers innovation. Minority, women and service-disabled veteran owned businesses are all examples of diverse organizations. The Common Source, being solely owned by a woman and meeting other specific criteria, is certified by the WBEA and WBENC as a Woman Owned Business and considered a diverse supplier.   While many companies are required to engage diverse suppliers, it has also become best practice that diverse suppliers extend to second tier suppliers as well. This component to supplier diversity is not always taken into immediate consideration, but corporations interested in conducting business with a minority or woman-owned business may insist that their vendors/suppliers do too.  If you use The Common Source in connection with a project, you are able to pass on the second tier diversity spend to your corporate clients. So, the next time your company is looking for a diverse supplier, mention The Common Source for all of your document management needs. To learn more about Supplier Diversity, please click here.
