Game-changing programs are built from well-informed and innovative designs. Heartwood works with you to design end-to-end programs that meet your needs and help you achieve your goals. And we are well positioned to walk the path with you - as advisor, partner, curator or technical backstop on living wage, living income and environmental dependence.
Your team is your biggest asset. When capacity is built and shared across teams, they can speak the same language and achieve greater things. Heartwood delivers customized capacity building programs for organizations, brands, buying companies, producers and certifiers on topics that include: living wage, living income, and sustainability labels.
We are working with clients to understand national legislation and ESG reporting guidelines, create appropriate corporate sustainability and procurement policies, select sustainability standards, and build due diligence frameworks for responsible business.
Heartwood helps design practical tools that measure what matters and turn the information into action. We continually advise on leading living wage gap analysis tools, living income methodologies, and human rights and decent work KPIs and monitoring protocols. Other services include living wage data validation; strengthening auditing protocols; and designing customized mixed-methods research.
Developing a new initiative or project and need someone to bounce ideas off of? Whether you want an advisor, a reviewer or friendly sparring partner, we can help you think through your options and consider which next best steps to take.
