two global problems, one elegant solution

Transparent supply chains for corporate brands
A voice for global workers
LaborVoices provides global brands and their supply chains what has been missing: an early warning system based on direct feedback from workers, by repeatedly polling workers through their mobile phones. We help our customers obtain strong safety standards and decent working conditions, empowering workers through their own voices.

In Bangladesh, hundreds of workers are using the LaborVoices SmartLine to share feedback on their safety and working conditions, quickly and anonymously. The SmartLine provides brands and suppliers real-time visibility into factory conditions, enabling them to identify and solve problems before they become urgent.
