SCORE Training is a modular training package and methodology, which aims to improve productivity, employee cooperation and working conditions within SMEs. The five module training program focusses on workplace cooperation, quality management, cleaner production, occupational health and safety as well as human resource management. SCORE Training demonstrates international best practice in manufacturing and service sectors and supports SMEs to succeed within global supply chains. Each module includes a two-day classroom training session for managers and workers, followed by on-site consultations with industry experts that help put the training into action in the workplace.
The ILO is assisting government agencies, training providers, industry associations and trade unions in emerging economies in Africa, Asia and Latin America to offer SCORE Training to enterprises. The project is managed by a global team based in ILO Country Offices and Headquarters in Geneva. The SCORE Programme is supported by the Governments of Switzerland, Norway and the ILO.
Since inception in 2009, SCORE Training has witnessed enterprise improvements in over 1400 SMEs, benefitting more than 300,000 employees globally. Today, participating enterprises experience up to 50% increased productivity, better workplace cooperation, less delays and a reduction in defect rates of up to 66%.
“We are pleased to have entered into a Public Private Partnership with the International Labour Organization. This is a great programme that proactively supports SMEs to increase productivity and establish international best practices. With the great results we already see in China, we look forward to further expanding the program with ILO across Asia and beyond.Timothy Miller, Vice President of Academy & Life Care
