Better Work to collaborate on HERproject in Cambodia

Apr '13
In May 2013, Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) and Better Work will launch HERproject in Cambodia. HERproject links multinational companies and their factories to local NGOs to create sustainable workplace programmes that increase women’s health awareness.

The project also seeks to demonstrate the return on investment for factory-based women’s health programmes, through benefits that include increased productivity, reduced absenteeism and turnover, and improved worker-management relations.

HERproject is a 14–18 month programme that currently operates in Bangladesh, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Pakistan and Vietnam. In partnership with 21 multinational buyers, HERproject has impacted over 200,000 low-income women workers in over 150 workplaces globally.

To support scaling the successful methodology for worker training and empowerment, Better Work will manage HERproject Cambodia, which will be implemented by an appropriate local NGO partner.

As part of the collaboration, Better Work is also providing feedback on HERproject materials, such as the recently launched HERfinance project. As Better Work has a well-established Financial Literacy curriculum for workers, it has been able to provide valuable recommendations to the HERfinance curriculum and share experiences of training implementation.
