H&M Promises to Pay a 'Living Wage' by 2018

H&M Promises to Pay a 'Living Wage' by 2018 | Change Leadership Watch |
Swedish clothing retailer H&M on Monday said it is developing a plan to ensure about 850,000 textile workers earn a "living wage" by 2018.

Hennes & Mauritz, the world's second-largest clothing retailer, said it will begin its pay strategy with three factories -- two in Bangladesh and one in Cambodia -- by 2014. The plan involves improving its purchasing practices to ensure its suppliers pay workers the true cost of labor, the company said. 

By 2018, H&M said it plans to raise wages at 750 of its suppliers, which make 60% of the company's goods.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

News indeed!  This is from the first-ever Living Wage in International Supply Chains conference.  It would be even better if they can achieve this ahead of schedule.  

Just the announcement could make a change in the livlihood of millions, just based on where people shop.  ~  Deb

The Trusted Advisors with Open Space event was a Hit in Las Vegas!

The Trusted Advisors with Open Space event was a Hit in Las Vegas! | Change Leadership Watch |

"I asked the 'change elite,' how many of you know about/have participated in an Open Space event?" - Deb (curator of this newsletter)

Well, among change practitioners, only about 8 - 10 hands were raised in a group of over 150 attendees at the global Association of Change Management Practitioners in Las Vegas this past week, (April 1-4, 2012) where we discussed Success Secrets of Trusted Change Advisors.

I'm just back from Las Vegas this week, and wanted to share this preliminary view from the "change elite," heh, with you.


"First people need to know you, then like you, then trust you."


Preliminary photos from our Open Space event are also shared on this link.  

Chip Heath, coined us as the "change elite" - that would be all of us attending ACMP 2012 conference.  Heh.  Professor Heath, Stanford, is the author of Switch: How to Change Things when Change is Hard, and was our first keynote speaker this past Sunday.

What a pleasure it was to offer Open Space to such an audience of over 150 following an energized, robust Q & A discussion with an elite group of panel-mates as well, a mix of change leader internals at major, well-known large companies and external consultants.  

I was in a middle role, as I functioned as a hybrid internal/external while I worked at the University of Michigan in Organization Development:

  • Liz Guthridge - Session Facilitator, Connect Consulting Group;
  • Deborah Nystrom - Open Space facilitator (me); Reveln Consulting &; 
  • Jim Bohn, PhD., Global Director, CMO - Johnson Controls;
  • Gail Severini, Conner Partners;
  • Michael Nestor, Vice President, Head of Change Management, Bayer Group

And yes, it was Vegas.  I've include ONE photo on this post of my Las Vegas tour, the day before the conference started.   (As they say, what happens in Vegas, stays on Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn and now, ScoopIt.)

We also welcome you to the discussion via our new "Trusted Advisors" LinkedIn discussion group, which is an open, join-able group.

Check out the session Slideshare there, that includes our Open Space and Trusted Advisors handout, which I'll also upload to my Reveln blog soon in .pdf format.
