Environmental “Quick Scan”
Prompta’s Supplier Diversity Environmental “Quick Scan” is an enabler to help identify “key supplier diversity indicators” and determine a corresponding Need, Requirement, and Opportunity level (L-M-H) for your business. The scan is a useful input in the development of your company’s supplier diversity business case and will help guide your efforts to promote supplier diversity and right-size your level of investment, support and resources.
