In advance of the MSDUK Conference and Awards event in London, Corporate Indirect Purchasing International Leader of Cummins Denis Ford recently shared his thoughts about supplier diversity with Spend Matters. Cummins is a 2016 MSDUK Corporation of the Year finalist and has been a WEConnect International global member for several years.
In the article, Ford states:
“Cummins understands that businesses owned by diverse suppliers help contribute to the overall economic growth and well-being of the communities in which we live and work. We also understand that establishing strategic partnerships with our suppliers helps create value for our customers and provides us with a competitive advantage. Collaborating with such businesses to provide goods and services to our company creates a cross-cultural competency that only comes from multiple perspectives.”
