Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Better Work Jordan releases its 2018 annual report on Jordanian garment factories

Author: Better Work Jordan, Published on: 15 May 2018

This, the ninth Annual Report presents findings and observations from 74 factory assessments completed in 2017. In addition, the report presents the programme’s engagement with national and international stakeholders in the context of relevant policy developments in Jordan. The 74 factories represent about 93 percent of participating factories which employ some 62,000 workers, about 89 percent of workers employed in the garment industry in 2017. The data analysed shows compliance with labour standards and working conditions based on the eight Better Work compliance clusters: Child Labour, Discrimination, Forced Labour, Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining, Compensation, Contracts and Human Resources, Occupational Safety and Health, and Working Time. Assessment findings are complemented with observations documented through other services, such as advisory and training, as well as the programme’s interactions with national and international stakeholders. Overall, non-compliance trends are consistent with the previous years.
