Partner with a WBE Certified Business for Success

Mid-America Contractors (MAC) is a WBE (Woman Business Enterprise) certified company.  What does this mean?  It means that our business is owned by a woman and has gone through a rigorous application and certification process to gain credibility and enhance relationships with our clients. Why do business with a WBE?  Read below to find out!

Increase Profitability

Research shows that companies who embrace diversity in their business partners are more profitable than companies that do not.  This is mainly because diversity works in almost every measure. Racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse workplace teams function more effectively than more homogeneous teams. Workers from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives avoid “groupthink” which leads to creativity and effective solutions.

Meet Tracking Requirements

When you partner with a WBE certified business, you can be sure that you will meet the stringent contract obligations many diversity supplier programs now require. Many purchasing agents, publicly held corporations, large private organizations and government agencies rely on contractors to be WBE certified for their supplier diversity programs.  Also, many companies are now mandating that as much as 25% of their purchases are allocated to WBE’s.

Tax Incentives

The federal government provides tax breaks for companies that utilize women-owned businesses as suppliers. There is also a second tax incentive that reduces tax liabilities for companies that use women-owned businesses that supply labor or services to a project funded with federal or state grants or loans. State tax incentives may be available as well. Supplier diversity positively impacts a business.

Strength for the Community

According to Adele Gulfo, president of Pfizer, “When women are economically empowered, they become engines of growth for their communities”. WBE’s are one of the fastest growing sectors of the American economy and a vital force behind job growth and creation.
