eLearning Aims to Raise Employee Awareness of Human Rights
A new internal eLearning course introduces employees to the relevance of human rights at SGS and the importance of upholding our commitment to protecting them. The course content was developed by SGS Academy for external customers and then internally adapted for employees according to SGS’s principles, commitments and policies.
Launched on December 10, 2018 to mark Human Rights Day, the 30-minute module has been deployed across our corporate functions and covers topics such as child labor, forced labor, freedom of association and discrimination, working hours, and health and safety. The course also provides an overview of how SGS promotes human rights through our global policy, Human Rights Committee and various programs, such as the SGS Code of Conduct for Suppliers and the Supplier Self-Assessment Questionnaire.
Work-related case studies and a quiz, which includes a certificate of learning when passed, complement the course. In 2019, we will be offering the eLearning course in multiple languages to all employees across our network.
