How We’ve Adapted to the Challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic
- Verité staff around the world are working from home. Our offices are closed, but we are finding ways to operate remotely to encourage social distancing. Much of our program- and project-related work will continue as normal or with slight adjustments.
- Most Verité work that involves travel, group meetings, or visits to factories, farms, or other worksites is suspended and will only resume when full confidence in the safety of all involved is well established by trusted authorities.
- We are collaborating closely with our partners, funders, clients, and others to determine how to continue or adjust our vital programming at a time when vulnerabilities for workers are increasing.
In the weeks ahead, Verité will be sharing how we aim to maintain and sharpen the work we do across supply chains and countries to protect workers’ rights. The logistical challenges posed by COVID-19 are minor compared to the increased pressures on workers to earn a living in a dignified, safe way, and we are committed to helping all parties in global supply chains find practical solutions.
Across sectors, industries, and countries, we develop tools, implement programs, and conduct research to take aim at serious labor issues.
