Training is essential to effectively implementing the responsibility to respect human rights, and must happen at all levels of the organization, from senior leadership down to personnel in the field. Some companies even see a value in ensuring that their partners, subcontractors, and clients understand the standards to which they expect to adhere.
Effective training ensures that personnel not only understand a company’s commitment to human rights, but are also able to carry out that commitment in practice in day to day operations. Good training ensures that knowledge is turned into action. Many of the standards for operations in complex environments are quite detailed in terms of training requirements and content, to include topics such as international human rights law, international humanitarian law, rules on the use of force, cultural awareness, anti-corruption, anti-trafficking, gender-related issues, and incident collection, monitoring, and management.
