IFC has published Measure & Improve Your Labor Standards Performance, a handbook for the implementation of IFC's Performance Standard 2 (PS2). This publication is intended to be a practical reference book, and aims to provide an understanding of the management systems and internal staff capabilities required for improving the labor standards performance in a company and its supply chain. It also provides a step-by-step guide to assist company management in developing or improving labor standards management systems.
The handbook was developed in collaboration with SAI (Social Accountability International) and includes IFC's experience in implementing PS2 in various industry sectors worldwide and SAIs experience in the field and work with companies on the use of management systems to improve labor standards. It aims to support senior management, as well as professionals in the human resources, operations and other relevant departments, to measure and improve their labor performance. Especially unique is its wide applicability to companies in any industry.
