We help you get to the heart of social compliance issues, improve working conditions and build resilience.
We take a worker-centric approach to ethical assessments, moving beyond the ‘tick-box’ approach of standard social audits to help you and your supplier get to the heart of important labour issues.
- In addition to seeking managers’ views, our experienced auditors and specialist interviewers gather workers’ views accurately and sensitively, providing an invaluable layer of insight into the root causes of prevalent issues.
- Our assessment forms the starting point of a shared journey (with your supplier) to agree collective goals, define an action plan and introduce realistic, step-by-step improvements.
- We encourage candid, transparent discussion on both identifying challenges and strengthening existing good practices.
- We can present our findings in line with specific company or industry-level social auditing requirements (e.g. SMETA, FLA).
Key benefits: You gain access to a sophisticated ‘diagnosis’ of your suppliers’ ethical issues, providing a solid base from which to improve conditions and build greater resilience in your supply chain.
