Compliance Syntesis Reports



Better Work country programmes regularly issue public reports on labour compliance performance. Evidence shows that public reporting significantly contributes to continuous improvement.* Better Work compliance synthesis reports contain aggregated compliance data on all participating factories in a country programme, regardless of when factories joined. Factories that have participated in Better Work for at least one full cycle of services - including an assessment, advisory services and a follow-up assessment - will be named in the synthesis reports along with key non-compliance findings.


Academic Papers and Research


Better Work publishes rigorous research and academic papers that inform its strategy and policy decisions. The Better Work Discussion Paper Series is an original, peer-reviewed series that presents rigorous, work-in-progress research material for comment and feedback. Better Work Discussion Papers are addressed to researchers, policymakers and development practitioners to generate comments and encourage discussion.
