Our workforce is as diverse as the products we build. Since our inception, workplace diversity has been a critical component of our business philosophy. It fuels our ingenuity. It improves our productivity. It expands our ideology. We are focused on recruiting, training and developing a globally competitive workforce that reflects the diverse communities in which we do business.
Bridgewater Interiors is devoted to adhering to diversity in both our supplier base and our employee base, as a significant portion of external spending is with other MBE firms. Similarly, 62 percent of our workforce is comprised of racial minority individuals.
These figures are not the result of happenstance, but rather a concerted effort geared toward aggressive outreach and recruiting efforts. Ultimately, we believe that only through total inclusion can the business optimize its full potential to deliver unmatched quality products to the customers we serve.
