CAS: Social Responsibility: Why Should We Care?

Recorded On: 09/13/2017

As corporate responsibility continues its rise in prevalence as a major factor in today’s business world, buyers and clients increasingly require their suppliers and business partners to put codes of conduct in place as a condition of doing business. Codes of conduct are an articulation of a company’s social compliance expectations at the factory level, regardless of whether those factories are owned or contracted by the company. Understanding why social responsibility is on the rise and why companies need codes of conduct can help you better navigate your social compliance-related business requirements and have more productive conversations with others within your company and with potential customers. During this hour-long session, Fair Labor Association staff, Heeral Coleman, will examine the evolving landscape and explore with you the reasons why you should develop a code of conduct and, more broadly, why your company should take a proactive approach to corporate responsibility. This session qualifies as a Product Safety Aware elective.
