We are a certified WBE and WOSB!
What is WBENC?
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the U.S. and a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs. Knichel Logistics has been designated as both a WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprise and a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB).
What are the benefits of working with a WBE/WOSB supplier?
- Tax Incentives – Working with a WBENC-certified WBE can provide your company with many tax benefits. The federal government offers tax incentives to companies who utilize the help of women-owned and minority businesses to supply certain services. Subcontracting specific services to a women-owned business will not only save your business money, but could improve your return on investment.
- Increase Revenue – Research continues to prove that companies who embrace diversity are more profitable than companies that do not embrace diversity in its business suppliers. Culturally diverse teams function more effectively than more uniform teams because team members from diverse backgrounds and perspectives avoid “groupthink” (Groupthink is basically the suppression of differing viewpoints in order to reach consensus). In short, diversity is profitable to your bottom line because it encourages creativity and innovation!
- Embracing Diversity and New Markets – WBE’s are among the fastest growing sector of our economy. By working with women-owned businesses, you are directly working with diverse markets and furthering economic growth in local communities. By actively supporting supplier diversity, your business consequently becomes more attractive to other companies who are seeking second-tier sourcing suppliers that work with women-owned businesses. It’s a win-win situation.
