At the very core of a company’s ability to meet its responsibility to respect human rights is the development of a human rights policy. A human rights policy declares a company’s commitment to human rights and the expectations it has of personnel, business partners, and others linked to its commercial activities. A sound human rights policy is the first step in implementing the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and other relevant national and international security and human rights standards.
Human Analytics can help. If you do not yet have a human rights policy, we can assist you with developing one. If you already have a human rights policy, we are pleased to offer a free and confidential preliminary analysis of your existing human rights policy to identify any gaps.
