Improving employee/manager communication

Supporting worker representation and collaborative problem-solving

To create a better workplace, workers need to be able to voice and address their needs and concerns.

The challenge

Factory workers know best what kind of changes will have the greatest impact on their working conditions and job satisfaction. But they often lack the skills and channels to make their voices heard and have constructive conversations with the management.

Our approach

Productive discussions start by understanding the other person’s point of view. We want workers to be able to voice their ideas and concerns, as well as give managers the skills to successfully communicate with their employees. We’re working with our manufacturing partner to improve worker representation, increase workers’ understanding of their rights, and give them the opportunity to implement projects that directly affect their working experience.
