To date, we have The Centre’s service to highly professional, reliable and efficient, with The Centre always on standby to help gather time-sensitive information, draw up tailored remediation programmes and implement them from start to finish.
Our collaboration with The Centre [formerly CCR CSR] enables us to bear more responsibility for the wellbeing of the people who work in our purchasing chain and their families, by ensuring children are taken care of while the parents are at work in the summer.
We are delighted to partner with The Centre to implement our Family Friendly Spaces (FFS) Programme. This programme is successful because the impacts are measurable and sustainable. Working together, we look forward to achieving even more for parent workers and children in the future.
As the Otto Group, we have been committed to fair and safe working conditions for more than 25 years. In these extraordinary times, it is particularly important to us to support the employees and their children individually and directly. I am delighted that [we] we can help at such short notice and lay the foundation for a long-term commitment
I am happy that that I joined this factory. I am allowed to work with computers for data inputting and the company also organised computer skill training for me and other young workers who are interested.
USAL highly appreciated the client’s support and The Centre’s efforts in giving us a chance to join both the HR manager’s workshop on child labour prevention and remediation and the working parent training sessions for our workers. Both training activities were useful for me as an HR manager for policy improvement for day-to-day work as well as understanding our workers and helping them have work-life balance through improved relations and communication with their children. We will consider replicating these training activities for our workers in the future.
We received positive feedback after the PhotoVoice programme. For participants, they’ve learned how to utilise the limited time with children after work. For non-participants, many of them who were too shy to sign up for this activity showed great interest in others’ photo stories when the posters were exhibited in our factory. If there will be another chance in the future, they will be more motivated to join.
In the past summers, my sons always ran around the house. Their grandparents couldn’t control them at all... Every day my children went to the neighbours’ to play without having breakfast, and would not come home until they felt hungry. This summer, putting my children in the Child Friendly Space makes us feel more at ease. They also know how tired we are at work and that making money is not an easy.
We expect that the indirect impact of this programme would be more orders from clients as we prove ourselves to be an attractive employer.
At BillerudKorsnäs, we are very happy about the programme and its positive impact. We will have internal discussions on how we are going to scale up in the future.
The project carried out by The Centre in our company has yielded good results and we are very satisfied with your company's help. Through The Centre’s professional training, we have broadened the thinking of young employees and inspired their positive spirit.
I want to become a supervisor one day in this factory. Therefore, I plan to stay with the factory and continue to learn new skills to prepare better for my career path.
