Competent, engaged, empowered and motivated people are a key resource to any supplier. At least 75 million young people around the world, aged 15-24, are unemployed, out of school, and looking at a bleak future. This Goal, while calling for economic growth to help close that gap, also calls for innovation and skills training to help employees get a meaningful job and expand their skills to face the future of that industry. Suppliers should develop and implement processes to attract and retain people who have the current or potential competences and availability to contribute fully to the organization. The managing of people should be performed through a planned, transparent, ethical and socially responsible approach at all levels throughout the organization. Good for Life shall monitor the continuous improvement of suppliers through the matrix focused on the development of its employees through skill obtainment and enhanced learning. This initiative is enhanced by suppliers who follow the ISO 26000 guidance on social responsibility.
