Description:

The film introduces the Dialogue for Compliance by showcasing two factories: Samad Apparel and Softwood, two denim producers in Lahore, Pakistan. Samad Apparel wants to improve productivity. After many consultants’ visits, training and conferences the company has decided to use the dialogue for compliance.
Softwood has been engaged in the Dialogue for Compliance and engaged operators as much as the management to develop bespoke solutions for the challenges the company was facing. As a result, Softwood did not only reduce the defects and improve the workflow, but also increased wages, reduced overtime and increased safety on the production floor.

Target group:

Entrepreneurs in Pakistan's textile and garment industry

Subject matter:

In a structured dialogue between workers and management, both labour standards and productivity can be improved - a win-win for employers and staff!

Background:

In Pakistan, 15 million people are working in the textile and garment industry. The working conditions are characterised by poor workplace safety, low wages, as well as a lack of co-determination at company level and a lack of dialogue between the management and workers. Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internatiponale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) implements activities to improve labour standards in the textile and garment industry - occupational health and safety, living wages, formalization of employment, working hours, equal pay, to name but a few.
The Dialogue for Compliance is a tool to address labour standards and productivity as two sides of the same coin. In a structured dialogue, operators and management develop bespoke measures to join forces and successfully deal with the challenges in their company.
Services providers and consultants for the Dialogue for Compliance can be recruited locally at the Sustainable Production Centre.
