Social Insurance (SI): Challenges and implementation tips






Social insurance compliance is one of the biggest challenges for stakeholders in China supply chains seeking to implement ethical trading standards. As a result of recent changes to macro policies and government regulations, new practices have emerged in different regions. Many supply factories in the field have struggled to implement the social insurance policies. The challenges they face include:

  • Too many local regulations and implementation practices varying across regions 
  • Low willingness from workers to contribute due to lack of awareness on social insurance policies, or due to implementation practices differing across regions 
  • Factories find it hard to get the latest regulations and/or implementation practices in a timely manner
  • Social insurance compliance may cause factories’ operational costs to rise - costs which can’t be absorbed by optimising internal operations



To respond to these challenges, ETI has worked with local training partners to organize two one-day training workshops on the topic of “Social Insurance (SI): Challenges and implementation tips” which took place in January 2018. The workshops received very positive feedback and we received increasing training requests from more local suppliers. ETI decides to organize one more workshop in March to meet the extra needs.
