“Cameron Smith provided me with my big break in my career, an opportunity to go from point A to point B very quickly, and I was very thankful for it. Eight years later I am now a client of CSA and I am as impressed with them on this side of the table as I was on the other side of the transaction.”

Ricardo Cassado, Director of Sales, Walmart, Group Danone

“Our experience working with Cameron Smith & Associates can be summed up in one word; Easy. They take the time to help us define and prioritize the exact candidate attributes that we are searching for within each position.”

Jason Salisbury, Director of Sales – National Accounts, Maplehurst Bakeries

“Whether it’s driving the conversation on diversity or helping us understand the true challenges the entire Walmart supplier community is facing, we see Cameron Smith & Associates as an extension of our team with the common goals of driving growth at Walmart and improving the NWA community in which we live.”

Scott Roberts, Senior VP & Team Leader, Walmart, Kellogg Company

“I’ve hired many people through Cameron Smith & Associates. They are thorough, they are ethical. I consider Cameron’s team an extension of my family. I would work with them over and over again. They are 5-star.”

Terri Brooks, Team Leader, Shopper Events

An inclusive workplace is a stronger workplace. Help your company flourish.

Diversity is Strength

Cameron Smith & Associates is dedicated to our clients’ best interests, and serving qualified candidates with excellent opportunities. With those goals in mind, CSA has taken the lead in recruiting qualified women and minority candidates for supplier-team positions with emphasis on diversity and inclusion.

In 2004 when Walmart announced a new diversity and inclusion initiative, they encouraged suppliers to follow their lead. Our clients asked us for support and participation in building diversity, and CSA stepped forward to help identify and recruit a broader spectrum of talent. We partner with clients to develop a strategy to attract and retain the best people from a variety of backgrounds, always with the intent to secure the best candidate for the opportunity.

Why This Approach?

In a global marketplace, a diverse team can better understand—and anticipate—the range of consumer perspectives and needs. At the local level, the best companies hire workers from a diverse background to create a strong, vibrant, inclusive workplace that nurtures creativity and fosters loyalty. Morale is boosted, retention improves—simply put, diversity is good business.

For many years, CSA has taken the lead on helping our clients attract and retain candidates from diverse backgrounds.

The power in our purpose.
