Civil Society Case Study: Better Work

The OAR helps Better Work to quickly identify potential facilities, enabling them to plan the amount of resources required in different locations with more accuracy and much greater speed.

Better Work leverages the OAR for efficient planning

Better Work is designing a program in Pakistan. Previously, Better Work had to ask brands individually which facilities were likely to participate in their programs, which could take weeks. The OAR helps Better Work to quickly identify potential facilities, enabling them to plan the amount of resources required in different locations with more accuracy and much greater speed.

Better Work will continue to use OAR as a planning tool for the same purpose and to approach new factories to participate in their programs.
