Better Work has proven that it is possible to simultaneously improve working conditions, enhance worker wellbeing, and boost competitiveness in the global apparel industry. Join us for the Better Work Academy and we’ll show you how.
Aimed at brands and other actors committed to driving change and transforming behaviour in the apparel industry, the Better Work Academy will provide training and advisory services to your global staff, building their capacity to implement our tried-and-tested methodologies across your supply chain.
Over the past few years, more and more brands have recognized the limitations of an “assessment only” approach to creating long term improvements in factories and sought alternatives.
To support brands in this important transition, the Better Work Academy is dedicated to enabling your social compliance and sourcing teams to learn about – and replicate – our advisory approaches to improving working conditions, increasing productivity and fostering better worker-management relations in factories.
The focus is on encouraging more effective communication in factories, allowing for creative, long-term solutions to the root causes of non-compliance. Our approach also fosters shared accountability between the private and public sectors.
The Better Work Academy
The Academy is a roughly two-year program that can be tailored to participants’ specific needs. Training is delivered through 12 to 16 in-person days delivered through separate four-day modules. eLearning, virtual coaching, and in-factory shadowing are delivered in between the in-person sessions.
