InfoMart, one of the nation’s leading employment screening companies, has been certified by The National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) as a business owned and controlled by a woman. The goal of the certification is to streamline the certification process and increase the ability of women business owners to compete for contracts at a national level.
“Certification provides a marketing opportunity for women business enterprises to participate in outreach programs,” says Tammy Cohen, President of InfoMart. “In addition, this program will enable us to develop relationships and future partnerships with public and private companies.”
As a sister organization to the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and the Center for Women’s Business Research (CWBR), NWBOC seeks to increase the ability of women business owners to compete for corporate and government contracts.
NWOBC, a national 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation, was created in response to needs identified by the Procurement Special Interest Group of NQWBO. The study revealed that the public and private sector had not received nor recognized the benefits of contracting with women suppliers. This has prevented purchasers from obtaining the best value in their procurements and it has limited women business owners from penetrating these markets, which has stymied their growth. NWBOC seeks to provide more corporations with the opportunity to better their procurement practices and to women suppliers the opportunity to compete.
“I feel that this certification is a true testament of InfoMart’s commitment to promoting women owned businesses,” says Cohen.
