SCORE Programme Brochure

ILO’s Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises (SCORE) Programme improves productivity and working conditions in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The key intervention of the programme is SCORE Training, which combines practical classroom training with in-factory consulting. The Training demonstrates best international practice in the manufacturing and service sectors and helps SMEs to participate in global supply chains. SCORE Training focuses on developing cooperative working relations resulting in shared benefits for enterprise owners and those who work there.

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. There is also a focus on developing innovative partnerships between the ILO, multinationals, lead buyers and brand consortiums, to encourage the integration of SCORE Training in supplier development strategies.

The SCORE Programme is managed by a global team based in ILO Country Offices and Headquarters, supported by the Governments of Switzerland and Norway.
