What our companies say...
There are two main ways for companies to take advantage of our custom consulting services.
Corporate Membership is the highest level of engagement with SAI. Members take advantage of a menu of resources, advice from SAI experts, and an annual customized project of their choosing. Members also work on annual improvement plans based on our Social Fingerprint® program.
We work with custom clients on strategic projects that focus on specific areas of their supply chain management. These projects can be short term or long term, and are aligned with SAI’s mission and strategic goals.
More Ways to Engage
There are many ways to get involved with our work beyond consulting. We are currently looking for brands and retailers to partner with us on the following projects.
