Social responsibility is an integral part of the Sayers culture. We are a testament to the adage that a company takes on the personality and characteristics of its leader. Gale Sayers has developed a record and reputation for civic and charitable work that rivals his legend as a Hall of Fame football player. Gale's most recent achievement is the establishment of the Gale Sayers Center.
We are a Minority-owned Business Enterprise (MBE) certified by the Chicago Minority Business Development Council. As such, we find that the door to diversity-sensitive organizations is often open to us. We appreciate these opportunities; yet, we understand and applaud the fact that these organizations will never compromise supplier performance in the pursuit of diversity "credit." They see diversity as an added bonus; we simply see it as a shared value and an opportunity for conversation.
Sayers is an active member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council's Corporate Plus® Program. This designation provides Sayers with the ability to satisfy national contracts for NMSDC Corporate Members.
Recently, Sayers and The Allstate Corporation were honored at the annual NMSDC Dinner Dance in New York.
