The SA8000:2014 standard is significantly getting recognised globally. Consultivo conducted a public training program on SA8000:2014, this time jointly with Indian Society of Training & Development (ISTD) on 1 & 2 September 2016 in Kolkata.
It was for the first time in Kolkata that a combined course on SA8000:2014 standard implementation and auditing course had been arranged. The comprehensive two-day course programme by Consultivo reviewed the structure & basic requirements of SA8000. It enabled the professionals to implement and conduct the internal audit to improve the effectiveness of SA8000 and add value to their organisation.
The aim of this training was to make the delegates understand the need for Social Accountability Management at work place and the requirements of the SA 8000:2014 Standard.
DKS Moorthy, principal consultant and lead auditor, Consultivo conducted the whole session and helped the corporates identify the gaps in their current practised standards and plan their transition to the revised standard.
Glimpses of the SA8000:2014 training course
Mr. Moorthy, having hands-on industry experience of more than 40 years also gave a brief overview of SA8000:2014 standard and explained its scope to the organisations who haven’t applied for the SA8000 standard certifications. He is in the management position of DNV’s Global Accreditations in SA8000, and is also the auditor on behalf of Social Accountability accreditation society (SAAS), USA.
This Consultivo training programme helped people to get an opportunity to enhance their auditing skills & demonstrate compliance to the standard’s requirement. Saikat Basu, chief mentor, Consultivo gave an interactive session on auditing techniques.
The approach was very practical and interactive. Consultivo had devised the training programme in a way to keep the audience engaged by including learning methods like individual and group activities, videos, quiz, discussions and presentations. Active participation was seen throughout the session among both individual and small-group activities.
Besides, the Consultivo training on SA8000 also helped the professionals to relate the key issues to the broader business context and equip them for a better balanced, more informed decision-making technique.
The special attraction of this auditing course was an hour long legal clinic for all the participants, where Samir. C. Basu, senior consultant, Consultivo with more than 36 years of industry experience, solved the participants’ legal queries.
