Vision: December 2011
Verité up close:
What does success mean for Verité?
It means more companies adopting effective approaches to improving working conditions. It means that companies will focus on the ways in which vulnerable workers benefit from supply chain responsibility activities. It means, ultimately, empowered workers, higher wages, safer working conditions, and equitable development – and better business too.
- $4 million was returned to migrant workers who'd been cheated by labor brokers.
- 130,000 farmworkers are enjoying better working conditions with vital things like drinking water and fair wages.
- Young girls in garment manufacturing in India can now avoid the worst kinds of exploitation, as a result of our business-oriented interventions.
- Every company and NGOs in all sectors and all countries now has access to our detailed Help Wanted Fair Hiring Toolkit to end the forced labor that results from debt-bondage.
- Hundreds of social auditors in other companies and NGOs have been accredited to effectively gather information from workers, and can apply these skills in the electronics and agriculture sectors.
- We helped several companies build capability among dozens of their suppliers to deliver social responsibility without increased cost.
