(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) May 4, 2011 - Ian Spaulding, Managing Director of INFACT Global Partners, announced a series of new seminars to complement its recently launched China Social Compliance Leadership Series. There are several key recurring issues in Chinese factories that require intensive information sharing and INFACT has responded by collaborating with a number of different organizations to develop and deliver practical solutions.


In collaboration with Fair Labor Association, INFACT will be hosting seminars on May 16th on Human Resource Management and May 17th on Hours of Work,

  • Human Resource Management (HRM) - In response to the growing concern over labor shortages and difficulties with worker retention INFACT and FLA have joined forces to equip factory management with what they need to improve their factory. This will cover managing human resources, training and performance appraisal, grievance and mediation and how to use the FLA Self-Assessment Tool to monitor HRM in the factory context. More information on HRM is available on the INFACT website.

  • 人力资源管理 - 针对在劳动力短缺及难以留住员工的问题上日渐增加的担忧,逸岸和公平劳工协会共同努力,为工厂管理层提供如何提升工厂管理的工具。这些工具包括人力资源管理,培训及绩效评估,申诉及调解,还有如何使用公平劳工协会内审工具来跟踪调查工厂环境下的人力资源管理。关于人力资源管理的详细内容可登陆逸岸公司网站进行了解。

  • Hours of Work (HoW) – With the challenge of trying meeting codes of conduct and retain a workforce which largely desires working overtime factory managers face incredible challenges. INFACT and FLA has created a training to educate managers on trends and challenges, proper methods for recording work hours, effective production management and how to use the FLA Self-Assessment Tool to monitor HoW. More information on Hours of Work training is available on the INFACT website.

  • 工作时间(HoW) -在尽量达到客户COC要求的同时又要保留要求加班的员工,工厂的管理者们面对着巨大的挑战。逸岸和公平劳工协会建立了一个培训课程,向工厂经理介绍趋势和挑战,正确记录工时的方法,有效的生产管理,以及如何使用公平劳工协会内审工具来跟踪调查工作时间。关于工作时间培训的详细内容可登陆逸岸公司网站进行了解。

Working with CCRCSR, INFACT will host another seminar on May 20th on Juvenile Workers.

  • INFACT and CCRCSR have developed training to help factories ease their labor shortage issues by appropriately hiring student workers and interns and how to protect these vulnerable workers. All the training will be framed in the context of managing the challenges of a new generation of workers. More information on this training is available on the INFACT website.

  • 逸岸与CCRCSR开发了培训课程来帮助工厂通过雇用学生工和实习生以缓解劳动力短缺问题,并了解如何保护这部分容易受伤害的工人。所有培训课程将会围绕管理新世代工人的挑战这个主题展开。关于此次培训的详细内容可登陆逸岸公司网站进行了解。

These are in addition to the China Social Compliance Leadership Series seminars on June 7 in London, June 14 in New York, June 16 in San Francisco, July 5-6 in Shanghai and July 12-13 in Shenzhen. The Leadership Series will focus on key social compliance issues and how to expand the scope of activities while operating within constrained budgets.
“Excessive working hours continues to be a significant issue in most developing countries, but particularly so in China. However, the labor shortage experienced in 2010 and likely to continue going forward has created a series of new challenges such as retaining your workers, increasing worker output and dealing with significant shifts in migration” said INFACT Global Partners Managing Director Ian Spaulding. “This new series of seminars are intended to get at the heart of HR issues.”
INFACT has also recently joined the Ethical Fashion Forum in the UK. The Ethical Fashion Forum is a non-profit organization made of fashion industry leaders focused on poverty reduction, education and the environment as it relates to the fashion industry. The EFF are hosting an event called the Excellence in Ethical Fashion, a three day intensive leadership training in June.
