2013. Time for a fresh start. To work smarter. Certainly smarter than 2012. After all, 2012 was the ‘Year of the Scandal’. A year that for many business leaders still makes for uncomfortable reflection.
Although with building collapses in Bangladesh, not to mention horsemeat burgers, 2013 has got off to a flying start too.
And whilst your brand may not have been in the spotlight, are you sure your suppliers weren’t exploiting their workers? Did you get lucky, or just look away?
Of course, we appreciate the investment brands make to audit their supply chains. But if 2012 was the year when ‘Nike moments’ gave way to ‘Foxconn moments’, 2013 must see the arrival of auditing’s ‘Napster moment’.
And not because it makes moral or legal sense; because it makes commercial sense.
Written for decision-makers as well as Supply Chain Directors, Ethical Teams and HR, ‘Beyond Compliance: Social Auditing just got Social’ is a free ebook split into 3 sections:
– Following a quick intro to the board, we examine the current state of compliance-based, face-to-face auditing, and focus on the 4 core areas where the process is failing brands, suppliers and workers alike.
– Looks at how technology and HR assessments can bring supply chain worker views into the auditing process. 2 case studies bring this to life: the apparel factory fire in Bangladesh; and the Apple/Foxconn debacle.
– Turns attention to the exciting new forms of collaboration available through adopting this cost-effective, sustainable and worker-centric framework.
