Audits and Assessments
Verité’s social and labor audits are globally recognized as best-in-class, particularly for their ability to provide deep insight to workplace conditions. We take a comprehensive and worker-centered approach to our examination of workplace and recruitment-related issues that triangulates information from workers, management, documents, and physical observation. In some cases, we include stakeholder interviews for context and insight to localized issues.
Our approach to audits and assessments start with a clear understanding of labor and human rights standards and the worker-related issues and risk environments of the different geographies and sectors that we work in. We ensure accuracy, integrity and comprehensiveness in our data-gathering and analysis, and we take a problem-solving approach to post-audit engagements with clients and auditees. Our engagement with workers is designed to provide a safe and confidential space for workers to talk about their working or recruitment experience without fear of retaliation.
