CVM Solutions Publishes Two Resources for Supplier Diversity Programs
(5 months ago)
WESTCHESTER, Ill: CVM Solutions, a Kroll company and leading provider of supplier diversity technology, data, and services, today announced it has published two resources-a checklist and a white paper-to assist supplier diversity programs with their initiatives.
The checklist, What You Should Look for in a Supplier Diversity Solution, and the white paper, Economic Impact: How to Measure Your Supplier Diversity Program's Success, are available for free download on the CVM Solutions website.
The value of a supplier diversity initiative to today's corporations cannot be understated. Often, internal supplier diversity staffs are not resourced enough to handle the full range of responsibilities—including measuring economic impact—necessary for creating, maintaining, and growing their programs. CVM's new guides offer advice for supplier diversity professionals looking to take their programs to the next level. The resources available are:
•What You Should Look for in a Supplier Diversity Solution: This checklist provides direction in choosing supplier diversity software. Topics covered include supplier discovery, data enrichment, Tier 2 reporting, and strategic services.
•Economic Impact: How to Measure Your Supplier Diversity Program's Success: This white paper examines the importance of supplier diversity to the community at large. Topics include why economic impact matters, how to measure your organization's impact on the economy, and why those measurements are important to key stakeholders.
"As our country's demographics change and the consumer population becomes increasingly diverse, we must keep pace by diversifying the workforce and our supply chain," says Ashlee Nelson, VP of Sales and Client Success for CVM Solutions. "Supplier diversity programs must be more than just an exercise in counting spend with diverse suppliers. Robust data and the ability to measure quantifiable metrics such as economic impact are essential for programs to thrive. Our new resources help supplier diversity programs strengthen their initiatives and the suppliers they work with."
