2020 has been a defining year for workforce issues. In the wake of Covid-19, and the uncovered abuses of workers’ rights, societal expectations of business have increased. The crisis has shone a spotlight on the role good businesses play in society. The evidence is clear, good management of people is vital for a company’s reputation, resilience and long-term success.

As shareholders, investors are uniquely equipped to make a difference – and they are increasingly demanding change. At the heart of this change will be data. The Workforce Disclosure Initiative (WDI) mobilises investors to ensure companies disclose comparable and comprehensive data of their workforce practices. Investors use the data to engage with companies on key issues impacting their business and workers, and by driving the mainstreaming of workforce reporting they help raise standards and an increase in the quality of jobs globally.
