Supply Chain Innovation


The PREPARE project is a "top-down bottom-up" approach to improve the efficacy of worker representation in factories in Bangladesh. The project employed qualified local trainers who worked directly with individuals at all levels of the factory organization – owners, managers, supervisors, workers, and worker representatives.

The project led to the development and testing of several assessment tools on Worker Integration. It also advanced FLA’s mission to train and build in-country capacity of local organizations to sustain project activities after the end of the project.  With the successful conclusion of the PREPARE Project, several tools -- SCAT, SCOPE, PTCs and Impact Assessment -- and training materials are available as part of a standard toolkit and are currently being used in factories in Bangladesh, Vietnam and China, countries where lack of worker representation and dialogue in garment export factories are chronic problems.
