Our Client’s Success With GRAT
Our GRAT technology was deployed at a major call center in the Philippines. Our client, the owner of the call center, was bidding on several large contracts with U.S.-based retailers.These retailers implemented stricter new compliance protocols regarding labor practices in their supply chains, and our client wanted to ensure that its policies would comply with the specific requirements needed to win the business. In real time, GRAT was able to uncover several compliance and labor practices that left the call center exposed to potential forced labor in its workforce. This would have prevented it from working with companies based in the U.S.CHTCS was able to provide a detailed report to our client that took immediate action to mitigate the risk and ensure it was conducting business in a lawful and ethical manner.
