Over 80% of factory workers in China have not raised a suggestion or complaint to management in the last 12 months, according to data from our Worker Sentiment Survey. If workers do not trust communication channels available to them, how will you know if they are experiencing harassment or verbal abuse, or being paid properly?

ELEVATE’s Worker Sentiment Survey deployed at hundreds of factories in China, India, Bangladesh and the US is building a first-of-its-kind dataset to complement audit findings with new insights on grievance mechanisms, supervisor relationships, sexual harassment, worker perception and preferences related to wages and working hours, production efficiency and rework rates, and overall worker sentiment including likelihood to stay and to recommend the factory as a good place to work.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What are the most surprising results in key markets? How does this data align with or add texture to common audit findings?
  • How is this data essential for your own business? What is the real business value of knowing, for example, whether workers feel comfortable talking to their supervisor?
  • How can you talk to factories about these issues? What does it mean, for example, to have 5% of workers reporting sexual harassment?
  • What practical actions should buyers and suppliers take to respond to worker insights?

Join our Worker Engagement experts for fresh insights you can use to increase the ROI of your efforts and drive truly sustainable improvement that is felt down to the worker level.
