Making the Business Case for Good Jobs

November 7, 2018, 10:30 am-12:00 pm

Bad jobs are not just bad for workers and society, they are bad for companies. They are characterized by high employee turnover and absenteeism, poor customer service which leads to reduced sales, and higher costs due to operational problems such as inventory shrinkage or inaccuracies. Join BSR and MIT’s Good Jobs Institute to learn about how your company can implement a ‘Good Jobs’ strategy. Through this interactive workshop, you will have the opportunity to make the business case for jobs with decent wages, predictable hours, sufficient training, and opportunities for growth. Through case examples and interaction with new diagnostic tools, you will learn how good jobs strategies create long-term value for employees, customers, and investors.
