Companies are increasingly demanded by their stakeholders to consider the social impact of their business processes, operations and the conditions under which their employees, partners and suppliers operate. Companies are expected to develop and improve social accountability across your operations, in addressing issues including forced and child labour, occupational health and safety, freedom of association and collective bargaining, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours, compensation, and management systems.
Consumers are becoming interested and informed about the working conditions under which the products and services companies produce and offer. They demand brands and retailers to be responsible for upholding declared values and ethical practices throughout the supply chain.
Companies are driven by these expectations and demands to implement globally acceptable workplace standard to demonstrate their compliance for social accountability.
