We Believe Suppliers Need Support + Tools, Not Policing.
1. Due Diligence at Scale is Difficult + Inefficient to Do Alone
As businesses continue to operate in a globalized landscape, the need for effective due diligence at scale becomes increasingly difficult in the complex supply chains.
We believe only through harmonized collaborations through workers, suppliers, buyers, unions, NGOs and multi-stakeholder initiatives we can achieve this goal. And our tools are trusted + supported by individuals and organizations across industries.
2. We Engage + Support Suppliers to Drive Mutually Beneficial Change
We engage the suppliers and workers directly, not to police, but rather provide with actionable data, and improvement plans to make meaningful changes. By actively involving + supporting the suppliers, we catalyze positive transformations within their operations, encouraging sustainable practices and ethical conducts which in turn increase their competitiveness in the global market while reducing social risks for the brands.
3. We Improve the Systems, not Issues
Our commitment extends beyond merely resolving individual issues; instead, we focus on elevating and optimizing entire systems. We provide tools and resources directly to suppliers + workers to address the root causes, mitigating issues at their source and fostering long-term resilience within the supply chain.
Who We Help
Our tools and services are created using user-centric & inclusive design to engage and connect with the entire value chain of stakeholders.
Our programs are designed to foster social infrastructures to support sustainable and valuable change in workplaces and supply chains.
We know employers in manufacturing, farming, and mining industries face unique and specific challenges, including managing a dispersed workforce and high turnover rates, dealing with issues of literacy and education, and navigating ever-changing demands from governments, regulatory bodies, and clients. Labor Solutions helps employers to overcome these challenges and to better support the needs of their workforce and clients.
NGOs & Multi-Stakeholder Groups
We partner and collaborate with NGOs and multi-stakeholder groups to amplify what they do best by creating technology solutions that help to multiply their impact and expand their reach. Whether it's helping to collect data through surveys, disseminate information through eLearning or creating grievance management systems, we're here to help integrate technology with the mission of your organization.
Our tools, developed using worker-centric design, empower workers with knowledge, access and dialogue tools. We aim to be tech-agnostic to support a broad spectrum of technology availability and use across many countries. Our solutions allow workers to anonymously provide instant feedback, access eLearning and information to enhance their personal and professional well-being, and hear directly from leadership.
Brands & Retailers
Labor Solutions leverages technology to help brands & retailers go beyond traditional compliance and implement programs that generate better data from more workers and create lasting change via supplier ownership. We are experts in worker engagement, dialogue and wellbeing, and our on-the-ground client advisors ensure programs meet the specific and local needs of each facility.
Traditional audits often have limitations on the amount of input collected from workers. Labor Solutions’ tech-based tools, including worker surveys, and Labor Line help facilitate the cost-effective collection of worker voice en masse, with built-in anonymity for workers to express themselves honestly.
