The SCORE Programme

Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises (SCORE) is an ILO global programme that improves productivity and working conditions in small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The primary goal of the global programme is the effective implementation of SCORE Training - which combines practical classroom training with in-factory consulting.


SCORE Training is a modular programme that focuses on developing cooperative relations at the workplace. The five modules cover:
  • workplace cooperation
  • quality management
  • clean production
  • human resource management
  • occupational health and safety
Each of the modules includes a joint, two-day classroom training for managers and workers and follow-up consultations with experts in the participating enterprises.

Since inception, SCORE Training has been delivered to over 3100 SME’s globally. This represents a total workforce of over 533,000 workers who have benefited from enterprise improvements, including efforts to develop a culture of respect, trust and communication in the workplace. SCORE Training has improved productivity up to 50% in participating SMEs and boasts an 91% satisfaction rate.
