With over 2 million people reaching employable age each year, CERB aims to re-focus the private sector’s contribution to Pakistan’s economic growth by raising capacity for responsible business conduct. This means reducing labour exploitation, ensuring better working conditions, providing equal employment opportunities, adopting a no-tolerance approach towards discrimination against Disabled persons and other marginalized groups, compensating workers in the supply chain with a living wage, and implementing social protection in case of illness.
To support creating livelihoods, our work in 2023 – centred around job creation, workers’ rights, and DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) in the formal sector – include:
Capacity-building on SDGs 3, 4 and 8 through our flagship SDG Leadership Programme.
Spotlighting the increasing need to address mental wellbeing in the workplace.
