Supplier diversity is a critical initiative of Wavsys' business strategy and a key component of our Quality Procedures to deliver "best in class" services to our clients. Our commitment to supplier diversity is evident in our 2011 procurement spend, where Wavsys was awarded 26% to Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Women Business Enterprise (WBE) and Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) businesses. Wavsys is continually developing and implementing supplier diversity best practices and continues to utilize the Reverend Jessie Jackson's Rainbow Push Foundation to uncover quality MBE, WBE and DVBE vendors.
To operate effectively in a complex global economy, Wavsys must be fully capable of dealing with different cultures in an informed and nuanced manner. Experience has shown us that we can best serve our clients by tapping the insights, talents, and judgments of a diverse workforce. Therefore, in addition to a diverse supplier base, Wavsys understands that a diverse, talented, and dedicated people are critical to our pursuit of excellence and success.
To achieve it, we must have the best people. The best people are drawn from a broad and diverse pool of applicants.
Our commitment to creating and sustaining a diverse work environment is absolute. Wavsys' management is accountable for leading the diversity initiative as part of our Quality Procedures. Our leaders understand the value of inclusiveness and foster a positive, inclusive work environment, which leads to enhanced performance and increased profitability.
