Policy development and implementation

SteelworksThe variety of organizations with policy commitments relating to labour standards and human rights is ever-growing. These range from international institutions, to private sector corporations and multi-stakeholder bodies. We support the development and review of policies through benchmarking, qualitative analysis and stakeholder engagement.

We also evaluate and design management processes to help clients deliver their policy commitments internally and through their operations. Key elements can include reviews of internal responsibility, accountability and communication, training and resource development and stakeholder engagement.
