Increase value, grow potential, and empower brilliance. At Directions Training this mission drives us as we create professional development and change management solutions that help organizations quickly enhance and permanently strengthen the capabilities of employees so they can ensure return on IT investments. One way we fulfill this mission is with our status as a diverse supplier.
Certified by Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) as a Women's Business Enterprise (WBE), Directions Training has been working with companies of all sizes, including Fortune 100 enterprises, since 1991. As we look back at our successful track record we see the positive impact that our relationships with customers and our status as a Women's Business Enterprise have on their bottom lines. A similar finding was recently published by Ernst &Young. They report: “…organizations that have a higher adoption rate of supplier diversity programs generate 133% greater return on the cost of procurement operations than average performers”.
Our customers receive consistent world-class curriculum, instruction, and service while reporting their spend under diverse supplier programs.
Beyond the benefits to our customers’ bottom lines, we’ve seen the power that being a diverse supplier has on local communities. Directions Training is dedicated to empowering girls to pursue careers in the technology industry through programs like DigiGirlz and International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners' Women in Technology (IAMCP WIT) chapter. We believe girls who are encouraged from young ages to pursue careers in IT will have bright futures. According to Janet Ramey, a Vice President with Cisco, there are more jobs, meaningful work and higher wages available to women who enter the IT field. When a woman enters and remains in an IT career, she can achieve a higher quality of life that benefits her family and her community.
At Directions Training, our mission to increase value, grow potential, and empower brilliance, is at the core of all our relationships. As a diverse supplier with decades of successful deliveries, we are dedicated to fulfilling our mission so that you can see returns in your workforce, your bottom line and your community. We look forward to working with you.
