At Verizon, we are committed to working with small and diverse businesses whenever we can throughout our sourcing and supply chain process.  We want to ensure the suppliers we work with are as diverse as the customers we serve.

 

Our diligence and dedication to working with small and diverse businesses has been recognized this year by several organizations that advocate them.  This year Verizon was ranked No. 8 on the DiversityBusiness.com “2012 List of Top 50 Companies for Multicultural Business Opportunities.” 

 

We have also been included on “Top Corporation” lists by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and DiversityInc.  Another prestigious award has come from the Dallas/Fort Worth Minority Supplier Development Council (D/FW MSDC), who recognized us for our Supplier Diversity results and innovative supply chain solutions. Recently, Verizon was honored by the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) for our long-term partnerships with minority business enterprises.

 

Verizon also pays tribute to the many small and diverse owned businesses that work with us, offering their cutting edge products and services, surpassing performance expectations and helping us exceed customer satisfaction targets, while continuously improving quality and customer service.  At our recent annual Supplier Summit, held in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, we honored these small and diverse businesses:

  • IncrediTek, a service disabled veteran small business who provides engineering, furnish and install (EF&I) services and equipment assembly services, with “Top MWDVBE Company”
  • Dynis, a minority owned small business who provides central office services for transport and DC power, with “Top Small Business”
  • AdAsia, an Asian-owned business, who provides full-service advertising and marketing functions targeting Asians, with “Top Marketing Supplier”
  • New Breed Logistics, a supplier of warehouse and fulfillment services, was recognized for their outstanding efforts in including diverse suppliers in their supply chain (also known as 2nd Tier) and reporting the dollars spent with those suppliers to Verizon.

If you would like to be considered for an opportunity to work with Verizon, we encourage you to register on our website:  http://www.verizon.com/suppliers.

 

Here are a few tips for registering:

  • Make sure your products or services can be used by Verizon.
  • Make sure you meet Verizon’s core requirements – listed on Verizon’s Supplier Diversity website.
  • Make sure you upload your small or diverse business documents.
  • Once registered, regularly update any changes to your profile, such as new contacts and address information.

Who knows, my team and I could be honoring your business at our next Supplier Summit!
