Human rights challenges including poor working conditions, harsh treatment and low wages are inextricably linked to business critical challenges such as high staff turnover, absenteeism and low productivity.
In busy factories where managers and supervisors are under pressure to increase their rate of production to meet buyers’ requests, often within short lead times, supervisors can become overwhelmed and treat workers as less than human.
By helping sites and their customers to understand the root causes of social compliance challenges and build better relationships with workers, we help accelerate progress on addressing and resolving key issues, improving conditions for workers.
- We conduct an in-depth, on-site needs assessment, exploring issues from both the sites’ and workers’ perspectives and analysing current management systems.
- We encourage a collaborative approach to addressing the root causes and employ social psychology techniques to help managers and supervisors see workers as ‘human’.
