How Our Fair Labor Program Works

Self-Assessment conducted within the past year




There are four parts to our fair labor program. First, each year we ask our emerging markets operations to complete a self-assessment of their human rights risks, which we then combine with a market-based risk assessment based on recognized international standards that rate geographic and human rights risk. Second, all country management and HR employees go through management training, which includes real-world scenarios and applied-knowledge tests. Third, our Fair labor trainers roll out the program to all employees, along with detailed instructions on how to raise a concern via Agility or subsidiary reporting channels. Posters showing our human rights commitments are placed in offices, warehouses, and company accommodation where applicable. Finally, once the training is complete, an analysis is done and corrective actions plan created for the locality. An independent audit takes place once we address any situations that do not meet standards or comply with our policies. The audit cycle repeats every 3 years.
