Our industry prominence is greatly influenced by our people. That’s why we consider our people our company’s most valuable resource. We value the richness that diversity brings to our workforce—it is beneficial to both our company and the communities we serve. We are proud of our efforts to maintain a workforce that represents many backgrounds, and are deeply committed to cultivating an environment where the contributions of every employee, customer and vendor are respected. This commitment is reinforced by our ongoing efforts in the areas of employment and promotion, training, community relations, and the Supplier Inclusion Program.
Our shared understanding of diversity is inclusive of, but not limited to, racial equity, ethnicity, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender, disability, veteran status, socioeconomic status, national origin, and age. Red Gold is a company that welcomes, celebrates and promotes respect for all individuals.
We welcome and appreciate business partners who represent people from many backgrounds and Red Gold will purchase quality products and services from a diverse supplier base. In fact, delivering great business results through cultural diversity provides a positive impact on our business, as well as the communities that we serve and represent.
It is our policy to promote the utilization of eligible Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) vendors in all aspects of the company's business. To do this, the company will:
- Actively and diligently seek out qualified M/WBEs for all possible company requirements
- Ensure that M/WBEs fully comprehend the company's requirements and are thus able to bid appropriately
- Make every reasonable effort to help qualified M/WBEs to meet company standards
- Encourage all suppliers to use minority and women vendors, distributors, and qualified sub-contractors as part of their service
We advocate the development and growth of minority and women suppliers. Our goal is to provide procurement, development and educational opportunities that will enable minority and women-owned businesses to excel as Red Gold suppliers and in America's free enterprise system.
