CH2M HILL Named One of the Top Ten Diverse Suppliers

DENVER, 19 July, 2006 — CH2M HILL, a global full-service engineering, construction, and operations firm, has been named as one of the 10 best companies for supplier diversity by Black Enterprise magazine.

This distinction recognizes firms that demonstrate commitment to diversity as compared to diversity practice benchmarks. These include total dollars spent with ethnic suppliers, total dollars spent with ethnic marketing, and workforce diversity. The top supplier diversity category focuses on the percentage of total procurement spending allocated to African Americans and other ethnic groups.

"This is confirmation that focusing on employee and supplier diversity is a strategic business imperative for CH2M HILL," said Faye Tate, CH2M HILL's director of diversity.

In 2005, CH2M HILL directed more than 27 percent of the $1.2 billion spent on subcontractors to diverse suppliers including women, minorities, and veterans. These diverse suppliers enabled CH2M HILL's delivery of innovative and cost-effective solutions in support of its municipal, federal, and industrial clients.

The firm was acknowledged with this distinction at the recent Black Enterprise Diversity Symposium. This second annual listing will appear in Black Enterprise’s July issue.
