“Diversity: the art of thinking independently together” – Malcom Forbes

We know that the best ideas and the best solutions happen when people bring their uniqueness to work with them. And a Wall Street Journal article highlights Hackett Group’s research which indicates ‘companies with supplier diversity programs are generating 133% greater revenues on procurement investments’. Alexandretta is proud to bring the skillsets, cultures and unique perspectives of its team to our clients. These diverse skillsets come from a team that spans three continents, four languages and a culture that focuses on 1+1 =3, meaning that we are stronger together and are well poised to facilitate optimized solutions and services around the globe.
Women In Business
Women provide valuable skill sets that are critical to the workplace. Indeed, hiring women is good for business. According to a report by Catalyst in July 2013, businesses with the most females had on average, 42% greater return on sales, 53% better return on equity and 66% greater return on invested capital. Alexandretta is committed to doing good for women and good for businesses and will continue to strive for equality in the workplace. “Alexandretta is intended to be a resource for women working in transportation and logistics. However, beyond that, it is also intended to support women within and without, provide mentorship, equal opportunity and an environment for collaboration, relationships and belonging” – Melissa Priest, Founder of Alexandretta Transportation Consulting
