"Stories From the Field" provides a reader-friendly collection of 14 case studies from our DR-CAFTA Responsible Competitiveness Project in Central America and the Dominican Republic, which BSR created and led to make the business case for responsible labor in the region.

As part of the DR-CAFTA initiative, we sponsored 14 demonstration projects across six countries and documented each in a case study. The cases in the book include projects covering labor relations in the conflict-prone banana industry of Guatemala, ergonomics and stakeholder dialogue at an apparel factory in Honduras, and working conditions for Haitian sugarcane cutters in the Dominican Republic. The lessons learned from the successes and challenges of these projects are relevant for companies—big and small—tackling labor and sustainability issues anywhere in the world.
