Working with the Li & Fung Vendor Compliance and Sustainability Team, we have launched the WorkerApp which enables factories to educate and engage their workers more effectively through a mobile application . The WorkerApp offers content that supports factory workers’ well-being and personal development, as well as factory safety and productivity. In addition, the App can be used as a survey and announcement tool, and in the near future, for e-learning. The App is currently available in Vietnamese, Bahasa Indonesia, and four Indian languages as well as English. The App is a free tool available to suppliers to help them become more effective at managing their workforces.
