Better Work is a comprehensive program bringing together all levels of the garment industry to improve working conditions and respect for labor rights for workers and boost the competitiveness of apparel businesses. It is a collaboration between the United Nation’s International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group.
Their vision is a global garment industry that lifts millions of people out of poverty by providing decent work, empowering women, driving business competitiveness, and promoting inclusive economic growth. That is also what Thygesen strives to contribute to society.
Participating in Better Work’s network, Thygesen Textile Vietnam has steadily improved compliance with ILO core labor standards and national legislation covering compensation, contracts, occupational safety and health, and working time. We aim to provide a safe work environment and a long-term stable job that our workers and their families can depend on.
