Michels Corporation’s Supplier Diversity Program actively solicits and promotes the increase of business with certified and qualified women-owned, minority-owned, and service-disabled veteran-owned suppliers and subcontractors for the benefit of our customers and our company.
Michels Corporation acknowledges the value of a strong Supplier Diversity Program as a strategic business decision. We are committed to identifying and offering equitable opportunities for diverse suppliers and subcontractors. We recognize that a robust Supplier Diversity initiative ensures that our customers receive the highest quality materials and services at the best available prices. We further recognize that the Supplier Diversity Program broadens our supplier and subcontractor base, stimulates competition and supports our customers’ priorities.
Michels Corporation has a full-time Supplier Diversity Manager who assists our customers, subcontractors and suppliers with their needs. The Supplier Diversity Manager is committed to strengthening our existing programs and databases. The Supplier Diversity Manager also develops relationships with and solicits proposals from suppliers and subcontractors that meet the qualifications of our Supplier Diversity Program.
The Supplier Diversity Manager actively mentors qualified suppliers and subcontractors that are owned by women, minorities and service-disabled veterans. Our program includes mentoring, networking, understanding Michels’ demanding requests, and helping small and medium-sized businesses increase productivity. This program has led directly to the development of several minority suppliers and helped them expand their businesses well beyond their relationship with Michels.
Michels is committed to being active in regional and national supplier diversity organizations to support these initiatives and share our perspective to hopefully improve the supply chain. Michels Corporation is an active member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
Michels Corporation is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to Corporate Social Responsibility.
