Capability building

Capability building

Remaining engaged with workers and suppliers and providing support is as important to our program as uncovering problems. We work with suppliers on programs that improve their ability to deliver substantial and lasting social and environmental responsibility (SER) performance improvements on a broad range of issues.

In conjunction with local and international NGOs, training groups, and other stakeholders, our work builds knowledge and strengthens processes, educating employees throughout supplier organizations and instilling behavioral changes through worker empowerment and management systems development.

Our central aim is to improve the lives of workers who are the focus of our capability building. We invest in worker skills development and empower workers to improve SER performance.
