Sempra Energy Corporation: Celebrating Their Own Best Viable Practices
The Sempra Energy Corporation over the past three decades have sought a large variety of methods to increase the inclusion of Indian, Asian, Black, and Latino-owned business enterprises in their supply chain management.
Sempra has made supplier diversity a reality at all levels of their organization by building total corporate involvement from those who influence the make or buy decisions of the company.
Sempra’s President and Chief Executive Officer is Debbie Reed, who is leading the company on an important mission to champion small business activity. The corporate plan follows similar strategies for corporate wide implementation projects which is to use employee teams to create the best viable outcomes.
Sempra executives understand the ethical ramifications from not using viable companies, which is why they celebrate annually and award many employees for their work with recruiting and engaging diverse suppliers.
The CEO of Sempra takes pride in the corporate performance reporting a record high net income in 2008 of $1.1 billion. The financial benefits of working with diverse suppliers contributes to the high performance of Sempra.
On July 10, 2009, an exemplary socioeconomic development measurable outcome of transparency at the Sempra Energy Corporation’s Annual “Diversity Champions Celebration” was held at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Building a strong diverse supplier and workforce goes hand-in-hand at Sempra with the organization’s core values of ethics, respect, quality performance, vision and being a socioeconomic responsible community partner.
The people of Sempra make the difference of achieving economic parity. Congratulations to Sempra Energy for getting it right!
