Today, over a billion working people worldwide –1/3 of all workers – are estimated to earn less than they need to afford a decent standard of living. Ensuring a living wage across your workforce reduces inequalities and builds more resilient supply chains.
Facing tough challenges like Living Wage in the constantly evolving world of sustainability, regulations and stakeholder expectations, sustainability professionals are looking for opportunities to connect with their peers for insights and knowledge sharing.
Peer Learning Groups at the UN Global Compact create a safe space for companies to share their good practices and challenges on critical sustainability issues with like-minded professionals, while gaining access to industry experts and unique networking opportunities. Through facilitated sessions, curated resources and group discussions, participants learn about the latest best practices on the Living Wage topic in a trusted, regulated environment.
The Learning Experience
The Living Wage Peer Learning Group encompasses 5 online sessions in 2024. Sessions are facilitated by UN Global Compact and bring together participants from different industries and sectors in Switzerland & Liechtenstein.
Leading up to each session, participants receive materials from the UN Global Compact to help them prepare. During the session, participants learn through case studies, breakout sessions, and discussion forms.
