Aires Supplier Diversity Promise
Aires is committed to supporting small and minority-owned partner participation in our business relationships and strives to increase the diversity of our supplier base. We value long-term partnerships, and our selection methodology is driven by a variety of service metrics including customer feedback scores, Aires service capability evaluations, ISO 9001 quality process conformity, environmental goals, and security program adherence.
We've found that many small and minority-owned businesses provide the new ideas and flexibility which Aires desires, and in turn, we offer procurement opportunities to partners, consultants, and suppliers who also consider minority-owned participation in their business relationships.
Additionally, offering partner support through the Aires Partner Management Program provides mentoring to partners which helps them strengthen their business and expand the level and variety of services provided.
Corporate stewardship is important to Aires and its employees. Our staff continually seek innovative ways to incorporate small business opportunities and partner diversity in our business relationships and strive to make a difference to the local economies of our worldwide partners.
Aires supports our clients’ Supplier Diversity initiatives and takes actions to ensure that their supplier diversity and small business partner goals are met. We commit to meeting our client’s corporate small business and diversity spend objectives.
