Social Compliance is a way for companies to help protect the health and safety of their supply chains, protect their employees, protect their brand but more importantly protect the community and environment in their operating world. Part of maintaining a robust social compliance program is to institute tools that drive accountability.
GTK Social Compliance is just that; a tool in the compliance framework that builds a sustainable program. We can help you create a compliance audit questionnaire, add vendors and partners, and distribute the audit solicitations. Your vendors can go online to respond. No response – no need to resend the email – the system automates this process with follow-up emails based on your requirements. Doing on-site audits – no problem – download the questionnaire in Excel – complete and upload or do it directly online.
Use reports and dashboards to help track items as they flow through the process to ensure management of your program.
Information collected is systematically reviewed based on user-created parameters creating a vulnerability assessment profile for the partner/vendor.
The key to a tool is in is ability to provide some level automation. With Social Compliance it allows users to upload key data, send out a solicitation, evaluate the solicitation responses, push to manual review and generate an action plan.
In the case where you use 3rd parties to audit – provide them access, let the auditor complete the audit and you review the results.The automation feature can we disabled in the cases where you want to maintain total control for brand protection.
Easily upload master data via Excel, CSV or through our support team’s assistance.
Once the assessment is complete and discrepancies were found you will need to start a remediation process. Track the progress of the remediation through an action plan ensuring compliance issues are corrected, and parties are held accountable to remedy the discrepancies.
