In developing countries, factory workers and farmers don’t have a confidential way to communicate with companies that sell what they produce. And, companies that rely on these laborers don’t have information about their working conditions or quality of life. Good World Solutions, with Cisco support, uses mobile technology to bridge the gap.
Labor Link, developed by Good World Solutions, uses mobile phones to collect and disseminate information to factory workers and farmers. Global companies can use Labor Link to learn about working conditions or deliver information on health, safety, education, and finances. Factory managers can use it to deliver workplace safety training and evaluate job satisfaction.
Since 2010, Cisco cash grants have helped Good World Solutions design, implement, and scale Labor Link. Information captured through Labor Link is stored on the cloud and helps multinational companies identify issues within their supply chain and track improvements.
In ten countries Labor Link is giving factory workers and farmers a voice and better access to life-changing information.
