The company is piloting programmes in India and China

Hasbro has announced that it is piloting worker well-being programmes in two of its global supply chain locations – India and China. In an effort to improve the lives of women factory workers, Hasbro is adopting Gap Inc.'s P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement) programme and Business for Social Responsibility’s (BSR) HERhealth programme.

These best-in-class programs will provide education to female factory workers and assist in setting them up for success, not only in the workplace, but also in their daily lives.

Brian Goldner, Chairman and CEO of Hasbro says, “We are proud of the progress we’ve made to drive social performance within our global supply chain, and with the adoption of these new initiatives, appreciate the opportunity to help empower female workers.

“Investing in these women, who make up the majority of workers in our supply chain, will not only impact these workers, their families and their communities, but will also improve productivity, retention and business performance for our participating vendors.”

As a leader in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Hasbro is committed to a journey of continuous advancement for their global supply chain workers.

Hasbro has received a number of awards for its commitment to CSR. The Company was recently named to the 2018 100 Best Corporate Citizens list by CR Magazine, as well as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere Institute.
