    Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 10 years from now:

    Fair Wages aims to become the industry leader in promoting fair wages and decent working conditions for all supply chain workers worldwide by 2030.

    To achieve this, Fair Wages will implement a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation system to track the impact of its purchasing practices on suppliers′ ability to ensure respect for workers′ rights. This system will include the following components:

    1. Supplier Performance Scorecards: Fair Wages will develop scorecards to evaluate the performance of each supplier in terms of fair wages and decent working conditions. The scorecard will assess factors such as minimum wage compliance, overtime hours, health and safety protocols, and opportunities for professional development.

    2. On-Site Audits: Fair Wages will conduct regular on-site audits at supplier facilities to ensure compliance with labor laws and international labor standards. These audits will be conducted by trained and independent third-party auditors to maintain transparency and credibility.

    3. Worker Feedback Mechanisms: Fair Wages will establish mechanisms for workers to provide feedback on their working conditions. This includes setting up anonymous hotlines, conducting surveys, and creating grievance mechanisms for workers to report any violations or concerns.

    Fair Wages Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Fair Wages is a non-profit organization that works towards ensuring fair wages and decent working conditions for workers around the world. As part of their mission, they also aim to educate and raise awareness among consumers and businesses about the importance of ethical sourcing and fair labor practices. However, Fair Wages has been facing challenges in determining the impact of their purchasing practices on suppliers′ ability to ensure worker rights and fair wages. They have reached out to our consulting firm to help them develop a framework for assessing and monitoring the effect of their buying behaviors on suppliers.

    Consulting Methodology:
    Our consulting team initially conducted a thorough examination of Fair Wages’ purchasing practices, including supplier selection, negotiation strategies, and contract management. We also analyzed the organization’s existing communication and monitoring processes with suppliers. Through this research, we identified key areas where Fair Wages could potentially improve their approach to ensure workers′ rights and fair wages.

    Based on our findings, we developed a four-step consulting methodology to assist Fair Wages in evaluating the impact of their purchasing practices on their suppliers’ ability to ensure fair wages and decent working conditions:

    1. Stakeholder Engagement: We facilitated meetings with Fair Wages’ internal stakeholders, including procurement, sustainability, and compliance teams, to gain a better understanding of their current purchasing practices and key supplier relationships.

    2. Supplier Assessment: Our team developed a comprehensive assessment tool to evaluate suppliers’ labor policies, wage levels, and working conditions. This tool was based on industry best practices and international labor conventions such as the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Core Conventions.

    3. Data Collection and Analysis: We worked closely with Fair Wages’ procurement team to collect data on supplier performance and purchasing behaviors. This data was then analyzed to identify any potential gaps and areas for improvement.

    4. Action Plan Development: Based on our analysis of the data, we developed an action plan outlining specific recommendations for Fair Wages to improve their purchasing practices and ensure better working conditions for the suppliers.

    The consulting engagement resulted in several deliverables, including:

    1. Supplier Assessment Tool: Our team developed a comprehensive assessment tool that Fair Wages can use to evaluate supplier performance and compliance with labor standards. This tool covers key areas such as wages, working hours, health and safety, and employee rights.

    2. Data Analysis Report: We provided a detailed report on the data collected and analyzed during the consulting engagement. This report highlighted any potential risks and gaps in Fair Wages’ current purchasing practices and provided recommendations for improvement.

    3. Action Plan: Our team developed an action plan that outlined specific steps for Fair Wages to enhance their purchasing practices and ensure better working conditions for their suppliers. This included recommendations for supplier selection, contract management, and communication strategies.

    Implementation Challenges:
    Throughout the consulting engagement, we faced a few challenges, including limited access to supplier data and resistance from some suppliers to participate in the assessment. To overcome these challenges, we worked closely with Fair Wages’ procurement team and leveraged our communication and negotiation skills to encourage suppliers to participate and provide accurate data.

    KPIs and Management Considerations:
    To measure the success of the consulting engagement, we defined key performance indicators (KPIs) that Fair Wages can track over time to assess the impact of their revised purchasing practices. These include:

    1. Percentage of suppliers meeting labor standards: This KPI measures the number of suppliers that are compliant with Fair Wages’ defined labor standards, including fair wages and decent working conditions.

    2. Cost of goods sold from compliant suppliers: By tracking the percentage of Fair Wages’ cost of goods sold from suppliers who meet labor standards, the organization can assess the effectiveness of their purchasing practices in promoting fair labor practices.

    3. Supplier satisfaction: By conducting regular surveys and feedback from suppliers, Fair Wages can gauge the level of satisfaction with their purchasing practices and make necessary improvements.

    Management considerations for Fair Wages include ongoing monitoring of supplier performance, regular communication and engagement with suppliers, and continuous evaluation and improvement of purchasing practices to ensure compliance with labor standards.

    Through our consulting engagement, we have assisted Fair Wages in developing a framework for assessing the impact of their purchasing practices on suppliers’ ability to ensure workers′ rights and fair wages. By implementing our recommendations and tracking the defined KPIs, Fair Wages can further strengthen their mission of promoting ethical sourcing and fair labor practices. This case study highlights the importance of responsible and ethical sourcing practices and how organizations can use data and analysis to drive positive change in supplier relationships.
