Why are Registered Consultants so important?
SAI and HAP see investment in responsible and skilled social performance consulting as a critical component of advancing human rights in workplaces globally.
Consultants often help companies navigate and apply social standards and requirements, but skilled professionals in the field can help companies go beyond auditing to embed changes in daily operations by…
- securing leadership buy-in and ownership of labor improvements,
- fostering worker engagement and participation,
- and guiding companies to internalize these and other positive changes in their organizational culture.
The SAI Consultant Registry will elevate and recognize consultants who demonstrate a baseline level of relevant training and experience and who look beyond simple compliance, applying a management systems and capacity building approach that integrates worker voice.
