Virginia-based IT staffing company, UDig, was noted for its diversity efforts on Staffing Industry Analysts’ list of 2012 Diversity Staffing Firms. The list is comprised of 169 staffing firms that include woman-owned, minority-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned, and HUBZone businesses among other diversity designations. The 2012 Diversity List is intended to help buyers identify diversity suppliers that can meet their specific needs. UDig is a WBENC-Certified Women's Business Enterprise that places IT professionals in contract, contract-to-hire and direct placement positions with a variety of clients ranging from small and mid-size businesses to Fortune 1000 companies.
“All of us that make up the UDig team are very proud of our WBENC certification so we are excited to be included on this list,” said Susan Frank, UDig's Chief Executive Officer. “UDig is committed to fostering diversity in the communities where we do business and beyond. Being a part of the WBENC organization has provided us with many opportunities in IT staffing and our commitment to our guiding principles has allowed many of those opportunities to develop into quality business relationships.”
WBENC's national standard of certification implemented by the WPEO DC is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
