Supporting Communities, Creating Jobs
At Supreme, we believe in operating with a “local first” mentality. This means that in the regions where we support our clients, we also strive to support the wellbeing of individuals in local communities. We hire and train local workers wherever possible, we source product from local farms and suppliers, and we make considerable investments in infrastructure projects that benefit communities long after our work is done.
It’s our philosophy that growing stronger communities can bring stability to troubled areas. The employment opportunities we provide enable peaceful citizens to learn new skills, earn a decent wage, and provide for their families. By purchasing local products, we contribute to local economies. By building roads and utilities, we improve access to goods and services that increase the quality of life for all.
For example, Supreme’s Afghanistan 1st Program (SA1P) focuses on community development in and around our operational facilities throughout Afghanistan. In some areas, up to 65% of our workforce is comprised of Afghan nationals. Since 2002, we have created thousands of jobs, and invested heavily in the infrastructure of the region.
Similarly, our Local First Program in Africa is an initiative designed to enhance community development through the hiring and training of local nationals for positions within Supreme. Currently, around 75 percent of Supreme’s workforce in Africa is comprised of local nationals.
Our continued commitment to local investment distinguishes Supreme Group from competing providers. Our total solutions reach even farther.
