With the introduction of new requirements and laws to mitigate ethical risks, together with an increasing demand in capacity building for Chinese suppliers, ETI has signed a license agreement with two training partners, NEWAsia and TAOS Network, to deliver a series of workshops in Shanghai and Shenzhen on topics around Modern Slavery, ETI Base Code and Social Insurance.
The workshops are designed to be interactive, practical and accessible to ensure participants who attend in person or online can apply the knowledge they have gained to their everyday responsibilities in operations, HR, CSR and ethical trade. The fees cover all training materials, lunch and tea breaks.
Course language: Mandarin
Who is this series for?
The series is aimed at Chinese suppliers/manufacturers, managers with strategic, operational and HR roles in their factories of all sectors, as well as brand local representatives, ethical trade team, buyers, agents and third party auditors.
What to expect
- Get the latest updates on international requirements, buying practices and local law/regulations
- Be equipped with practical solutions and best practice to tackle the most challenging issues in supply chains
- Build a personal network of local experts and industry peers to share ideas and experiences
The pilot MSA workshops in Sept 2017 got very positive feedback and nearly 100 participants from local suppliers spreading in different industries participated the training. And the post training feedback revealed:
- More than 90% participants rated the training at score 4 (useful) and 5 (extremely useful)
- The average levels of participants’ understanding on MSA background, grey areas, risk assessment and remediation were improved from score 2 (out of 5) before the training to above 4 after the training
- More than 90% participants cited the contents and methodology are practical, stimulating and interactive
Some participants reflected “we have thought modern day slavery is far away from us and never expected the potential is such high in our supply chain. This workshop has systematically raised our awareness and capacity to combat this issue in our daily operation.”
