Considering and managing the human rights impacts in businesses in COVID-19 times: The webinar organized by the ILO, UNDP, Global Compact Turkey andB4G cooperation will discuss on 28 October

It is becoming clearer than before that no single group, country or business can beat the threat of COVID-19 alone. Besides, it is possible to improve human rights at work, and cushion the impact of COVID-19. As challenges become increasingly complex, the need for cooperation to find the right balance of health, economic and social policy actions continues to be essential. The sustainable, rights-based approach to economic and social development based on international standards will be discussed through a webinar on 28 October, presenting a simple, accessible and adjusted tool for businesses: The Human Rights Due Diligence and COVID-19: Rapid Self-Assessment for Business (COVID-19 Rapid Self-Assessment).

As part of the ILO/UNDP Framework for Action, ILO Office for Turkey and UNDP Turkey Country Office assessed human rights impact of the COVID-19 in business context and in cooperation with Global Compact Network Turkey and Business for Goals Platform (B4G) and the COVID-19 Rapid Self-Assessment has been adjusted to Turkish context. This assessment offers to companies key human rights actions in the specific context of Covid-19. In the insightful webinar organized by this cooperation on 28 October, the private sector will find answers how and why human rights are needed for stronger, more sustainable and resilient businesses in times of COVID-19. The tool also answers the question on how to turn international standards on human rights into action at company level.
