SCORE Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises Annual Report 2019

The year 2019 marks the tenth year that the Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises (SCORE) has been in operation. The SCORE Programme is now recognized as an effective programme and training system to support small and medium enterprises to improve their productivity and working conditions. One measure of this recognition is that the SCORE Training is utilized not only in the ten countries where the Programme is active, but is also supporting other donor funded programmes in Bangladesh, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Egypt, India, Republic of South Africa, and Turkey, and in additional five new countries: Algeria, Mauritius, Pakistan, Tanzania, Zimbabwe. SCORE Training has been widely utilized on a global scale and is able to show relatively consistent results at the enterprise level across a broad range of industries and countries. As of December 2019, 85,583 workers and managers from 2,357 enterprises in ten SCORE countries have participated in SCORE Training since 2009. While the overall scale of SCORE Training is still modest, it is clear that SCORE Training effectively helps enterprises find a better road to productivity and growth, from which both workers and employers benefit.
