Small and Diverse Business Partner
At Best Buy, we believe that supplier inclusion increases competition, facilitates customer loyalty and aligns with our business strategy. It is our policy to promote and provide opportunities to small and diverse suppliers while ensuring that we receive the highest quality products and services at the greatest value.
Inclusion and diversity are the heart and soul of Best Buy.
We are committed to creating a stronger community of small and diverse suppliers to help increase opportunity and representation in the tech industry. This committment includes plans to increase all forms of spending with small and diverse businesses in nearly every area of the company – from how we bring in goods and services to stores to our information technology to where and how we advertise.
In addition to the financial investments, Best Buy will support the growth of these businesses by providing access to our retail capabilities such as supply chain, sourcing and product development. To increase the number of small and diverse businesses and suppliers, we will continue to create and build partnerships with colleges and universities and various community organizations.
