Better Work Egypt offers our full suite of services under our global Factory Service Model to registered factories. This includes a series of Learning and Assessment services, as detailed below.
The learning part of our process takes place through advisory factory visits, training and industry seminars. Learning will focus on topics such workplace cooperation, human resources, occupational safety and health, productivity, financial literacy, communication, negotiation, supervisory skills etc. Depending on the focus of the learnings, they will either be implemented by the Better Work team or other ILO teams based on their specific area of expertise.
Our advisory work begins with a specially-tailored programme of coaching from our experienced staff. Here we engage factory managers one-on-one in identifying compliance and other issues and establish the means of improvement, working with them every step of the way.
Industry Seminars are an integral part of the advisory process as they provide an important opportunity for factories to learn from their peers. Seminars are participatory, learner-centered workshops that aim to tackle collectively areas of needed improvement identified across factories.
Our innovative training courses for factory representatives support and reinforce the advisory work through detailed instruction on how to tackle challenges and improve workplace relations. Examples of this include training on managing health and safety in the workplace, enabling worker and management representatives to diagnose and improve their own grievance mechanisms, and educating supervisors on how to manage workers, and training on setting up proper human resources systems.
