Case Study: EILEEN FISHER

Objective
Train factory workers in China on how to participate in improving workplace conditions.

The Project
Verité’s staff and subject matter experts facilitate on-site workshops engaging factory workers in interactive sessions on topics including China labor law, workplace health and safety, and elective modules on health, hygiene, and social skills.

The training program educates workers on their labor and human rights and empowers them to exercise those rights.

Verité also provides training workshops for EILEEN FISHER factory managers in China. To encourage collaboration, these trainings typically bring all managers to a single site in Shenzhen, China. The workshops cover subjects ranging from environmental sustainability to factory management systems to EILEEN FISHER workplace values.

Case Study: Responsible Business Alliance (RBA)

Objective
Establish and conduct an auditor course.

The Project
Since 2010, Verité has been the worldwide exclusive certified trainer for the RBA (formerly EICC) Labor & Ethics Lead Auditor Training.

The course provides participants with the competencies necessary to successfully perform EICC Labor & Ethics Validated Audit Process (VAP) audits.

The highly interactive five-day workshop covers social systems auditing, investigative skills, management systems, validation, and reporting.

Included in the course is an online self-study module covering the background and context of the EICC program, common labor issues, compliance and legal standards, and other knowledge content.

Educate factory workers on labor and life skills

The Project
Verité’s web-based Worker Training Center currently offers 10 cartoon and live video modules on labor and life skills topics bilingually in Chinese and English.

Videos feature recurring characters who highlight issues and solutions in everyday factory situations using a lighthearted, humorous approach.
