"Nestlé first company to publicly share its human rights training for employees", 30 April 2019
In order to inspire and guide other companies on how to train its employees on human rights, Nestlé has now decided to share its training module publicly.
The decision is a result of the company’s long-term collaboration with the Danish Institute for Human Rights...
“The need to address the human rights issue simply trumps other considerations – commercial or competitive. This module is open to all companies and individuals interested in gaining a better understanding of the human rights issue. They can choose to use this training in its current form, or to adapt it to meet their own needs,” said Yann Wyss [Senior Public Affairs Manager, Social and Environmental Impact].
Built around three chapters – understanding human rights, human rights challenges, and practical solutions – the training module manages the feat of conveying complex information in simple language, devoid of legal and technical jargon...
“We encourage companies to be transparent about their human rights challenges and how they address them. It is commendable that Nestlé is breaking new grounds in sharing their human rights training publicly...,” Dirk Hoffmann, Senior Advisor, Department for Human Rights & Business at the Institute, said.
