We thank you for your interest in the Social and Labor Convergence Project.   

What does the SLCP want to achieve?

This pioneering project seeks to create a converged assessment framework that supports stakeholders’ efforts to improve working conditions in the global apparel and footwear supply chain.

This project will help the industry to:

•       Reduce audit fatigue: avoid duplications and reduce the number of social & labor audits by replacing current proprietary assessment tools
•       Increase the opportunity for greater comparability of social & labor data
•       Redeploy resources towards improvement actions
•       Build mutual trust and respect, measure and understand working conditions and improve those conditions over time

 To promote adoption and create scale, the converged assessment framework will be open source and publicly available.

We are actively seeking your opinion on the project and we thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the survey and provide feedback on the three elements of the S&L converged assessment framework-prototype2: 

1.     Data Collection & Verification Tool (excel)
2.     The Verification Protocol (PDF)
3.     The Verifier Guidance (PDF)

Your involvement is important to ensuring the project is as inclusive as possible; your feedback will be reviewed and analyzed to help inform the next iteration of the converged assessment framework.

There are 41 questions total, all of which are optional to answer except your organizational information.  We encourage you to answer all questions; however, if your time is limited, we welcome you to focus on the areas you are most interested in giving thoughtful feedback on. You will also be able to save your survey results if you are unable to complete the entire survey in one session, and return and complete it at a later stage. 

Answers to the survey will be treated confidentially.  They will be compiled and the feedback we will share will not attribute any comments or inputs to specific contributors.

We appreciate your time and contributions to this process.  Please keep in mind that the survey will close on December 4, 2017.

Thank you.
