Workers in factories are often not aware of their rights and responsibilities. Human rights are being violated every day in conventional trade, despite international conventions and national regulations on employment rights and sustainability standards.
Global brands and companies engaging in emerging markets often struggle to comply with these standards. Failing to properly address such issues may put business reputation at stake and increase risks of human rights violations. Poor working conditions may also affect factory owners and suppliers in terms of low worker engagement, poor worker-manager relations and high employee turnover.
Training with QuizRR enables you to educate your workforce, measure your results, and share your progress.
The QuizRR digital training tools are used by global brands for concrete and scalable actions, adding transparency to social sustainability. Currently, nearly 40 global brands and their suppliers are driving change through training with QuizRR. By 2020, we aim to train over two million workers, creating sustainable supply chains through innovations, educational technology, and business partnerships.
The ILO core conventions and OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises are the basis of our practice, as well as The UN Sustainable Development Goals. These goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. QuizRR training solutions contribute to four of the 17 goals as highlighted below.
Access to education and knowledge lies at the very core of the QuizRR mission and vision, through raising awareness on social sustainability in global supply chains and educating factory workers on their rights and responsibilities.
QuizRR provides women with knowledge of maternity rights and health issues, how to report exploitation and inequalities at the workplace, and how to claim your voice as a worker representative.
QuizRR concentrates on labor rights and promotes safe and secure working environments for all workers, including migrant workers and those in precarious employments.
Training with QuizRR enables global business to introduce sustainable practices for corporate responsibility in their operating strategy, such as promoting fair recruitment practices.
QuizRR enables suppliers to proactively educate, measure and share their progress on workers’ rights and responsibilities, worker engagement and wage management. Currently, hundreds of factories and suppliers in Bangladesh and China are training with QuizRR. We are currently developing a training on fair recruitment and decent work for migrant workers.
