MYPOD – Work environment, productivity and social dialogue in Myanmar garment industry


The objective of MYPOD is that Myanmar’s garment industry generates more decent jobs, sustainable increased value addition and participation in the global garment value chain. The project involves project factories from BESTSELLER’s supplier base as well as locally owned factories. A business case will be developed to document the commercial and workplace effects shown at project factories. The project has two outcomes, firstly that employers and workers at project factories benefit from improved work environment, productivity and social dialogue – all of which contributes to ensuring more decent jobs. Secondly, that there is an increased sector-wide awareness and technical capacity among suppliers and brands for improvement processes and local partners actively contact and use improved capabilities to facilitate improvements on work environment, productivity and social dialogue in garment factories.
