#Supply Chain


Join BSR for a networking discussion on supply chain management to learn how your company can orient its efforts toward deeper impact and to hear from experts on their direct experiences in worker engagement in key sourcing countries.

During the event, which will be held in English, you will have the opportunity to learn more about BSR’s "Supply Chain Leadership Ladder," a maturity model that helps companies develop more impactful sustainable supply chain programs and, specifically, address the challenging topic of worker engagement. Hear how to best engage workers and how this supports better supply chain returns. Participants will leave with tools to assess the maturity of their supply chain sustainability programs and concrete ideas on how to enhance their approaches to worker engagement.

BSR is pleased to feature Lin Wang, Director in BSR’s Shanghai office, to provide firsthand experience of what makes worker engagement successful in China. Lin will explain the impact of China’s industry development and automation on workers’ skill development. This event will also be an opportunity to discuss the necessity of investing in development and training to hire, retain, and motivate workers in China, especially in the new generation.
