We help you build your business case for change and demonstrate measurable impacts of worker improvement programmes.
Understanding if you are making a real, tangible impact on the health, livelihoods and wellbeing of workers and their communities is essential to demonstrating concrete progress to stakeholders and return on investment to senior managers, as well as fulfilling your sustainability goals.
We help you design, develop and implement socio-economic impact assessments to measure:
- The results of specific improvement programmes and projects (establishing a baseline and conducting regular reviews).
- Whether increases in wages or improved labour conditions have led to genuine improvements for workers and their families (e.g. increased ability to cover living costs (and a lower reliance on debt) and pay children’s school fees or access to better healthcare).
- How workers are benefitting (in factory, farm and smallholder settings) at work from improved labour conditions or opportunities to learn new skills and gain better jobs.
We measure the results with precision by selecting appropriate indicators, gaining the trust of respondents, capturing accurate data, providing expert, in-depth analysis and supplementing this with our knowledge of the broader local and regional context.
We help you harness the information to develop a business case for action and make strategic recommendations to maximise impact.
Key benefits: You strengthen your business case for change and demonstrate the positive impacts of worker-centric, change-focused programmes.
