Better Work is looking to strengthen and broaden its corporate engagement beyond social compliance to include other functions such as sourcing and senior management.
Better Work is also seeking opportunities to actively participate in key industry events. Better Work is the product of two leading international organizations with strong track records in reducing poverty and increasing rights and opportunities where they are needed. The International Labour Organization (ILO) is the specialized labour agency of the United Nations with expertise in social dialogue, labour standards and the application of labour laws; and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) is a member of the World Bank Group, and is the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector.
