Garment factories - why work with CARE?

CARE offers 

  • Proven models for engaging with workers, suitable for a factory setting.

  • Standard packages developed in consultation with factory managers.

  • Flexible formats which can be adapted to cover different topics or new settings.

  • Existing relationships to increase the reach and effectiveness of activities.

  • Staff with experience working with private sector companies.

  • Industry understanding and access to the latest research.

 

Part of a global confederation of 14 organisations working across 94 countries, CARE Cambodia also brings a wealth of international knowledge and experience to every project worked on.

 

Impacts

 

Factory managers involved in CARE programs report benefits including:

  • Improved employee attendance

  • Increased productivity

  • Improved work environment

  • Improved communication and teamwork

Workers who have engaged with CARE report benefits including:

  • Taking less sick leave

  • Improved access to health services

  • Reduced incidences of sexual

    harassment

“Before we worked with CARE we told workers about appropriate

behaviour informally but this was not very effective. Now we

have specific messages to share and a clear workplace policy, it is

easy to show our workers what behaviour is not acceptable in our factory.”
