Podcast: The importance of improving job quality in supply chains

It’s difficult to dispute that everyone working in supply chains – whether businesses or individuals – should get a fair deal for the work or service that they provide. But often it can be difficult to define what exactly that deal should look like.

In this podcast we hear from the Ethical Trading Initiative’s Peter McAllister about what makes a quality job, before looking at two different approaches to ensuring the people and small businesses working in supply chains are properly rewarded for their contribution. Ritu Kumar, our Director of Environmental and Social Responsibility discusses the work her team has done with manufacturing companies, while Pamela Cornes from SAB Miller talks about the company’s approach to supporting small enterprises.
