Webinar, 29 June: Measuring the impact of purchasing practices on working conditions during COVID-19

June 2, 2021

For professionals in Asia and Europe

*Due to high interest from professionals in Asia and Europe, this is the second session we are hosting on this topic to accommodate viewers from the above mentioned time zones.

At the end of 2020, Ulula and Better Buying Institute conducted supplier-level and direct worker-level surveys in the apparel supply chain in Vietnam to measure the impacts that buyer purchasing practices during COVID-19 have on suppliers and working conditions. In this webinar, Thomas Radal from Ulula and Marsha Dickson from Better Buying Institute will share research findings and recommendations to help brands and retailers understand their impact and encourage better practices.

You will learn

• Data-backed insights on how COVID-19 has impacted suppliers’ business profitability and economic sustainability, and overall ability to provide good working conditions and wages

• How changing purchasing practices have impacted management stress, worker overtime, worker layoffs and retrenchment, and worker turnover

• Actionable steps that brands and retailers can take towards improving purchasing practices, to enhance supplier relations and mitigate negative human rights impacts.
