How Levi's includes worker well-being in supply chain management

How Levi's includes worker well-being in supply chain management | Sustainable Retail | Scoop.it

Levis convened meetings in Cambodia with suppliers, NGOs, and other brands to promote worker well-being in five core areas: economic empowerment, good health and family well-being, equality and acceptance, educational and professional development, and access to a safe and healthy environment. Some suppliers have had success implementing worker programs such as free medical care and transportation, but the challenge is bringing such efforts to scale. Companies like Levi's can push initiatives from top-down, but to be successful suppliers and the local community must own them and realise that 'employer of choice' is closely aligned with 'supplier of choice.'
