In 2019, Better Work Haiti prioritised worker-management relations by introducing platforms for participation in social dialogue within factories. Such initiatives contributed to the promotion of more advanced HR management systems and demonstrated that worker-manager communication could be an essential competitive asset for firms.
In collaboration with tripartite representatives from the private sector, workers and the government, Better Work Haiti organised the second edition of the ‘Building Bridges’
programme, an initiative to strengthen the capacity of national stakeholders and facilitate a joint learning process that contributes towards enhanced ownership of all parties.
The sessions incorporated discussions to identify the benefits of sound industrial relations and the risks associated with poor collaboration between workers and employers.
By the end of the workshops, participants were able to recommend concrete actions to promote better relations.
