The Better Work program improves working conditions in global textile and apparel supply chains. By monitoring factories' compliance with national labor laws and international labor standards, Better Work promotes better conditions for workers, develops competiveness by providing technical assistance to factories that need to improve their compliance, and informs major brands and buyers of labor conditions in the sector. Multinational apparel brands use that information to make business decisions and help determine where to place their orders.
