"A New Approach to the Well-being of Factory Workers in Global Supply Chains: Evidence from Apparel Factories in Mexico, Sri Lanka, China and Cambodia" by SHINE (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health), was one of only eight selected papers chosen for publication by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in their new report Measuring The Impacts of Business on Well-being and Sustainability.
SHINE teamed up with Levi Strauss & Co. (LS&Co.) and the brand’s vendors (supplier factories) in Mexico, Sri Lanka, China and Cambodia to collect data from approximately 9500 workers on factory working conditions, worker well-being, and business outcomes, to demonstrate the mutual dependency between worker needs and business needs.
The study shows that by setting out a metric for continuous process improvement that includes the voices of buyers (brand), suppliers (factory management) and workers—especially in the most vulnerable regions of the globe—business can choose to be a force for good by changing expectations on the factory floor.
