With the proliferation of mobile phones, smartphones, and tablets across the developing world, mobile technology offers new ways to engage and support workers in global supply chains. Whether through learning apps to improve knowledge and skills or through mobile-based surveys and announcements to inform workers on key issues, technology is increasingly present in factories and farms and in the hands of workers. Join us to explore emerging trends in technology-based support for workers in supply chains and hear insights from companies and technology experts on how to measure the effectiveness and impact of various tools in this dynamic space.
