One year on from the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh – Company values matter!

UCL Careers23 April 2014

It’s easy to dismiss the importance of company values; but Saturday, 26th April marked the first anniversary of the tragic Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh.  This led to the deaths of over 1,100 garment workers and serious injuries to many more.Rana Plaza - FT.com

Modern supply chain management involving product outsourcing in overseas markets may mean cheap clothing on demand but when a company fails to audit its suppliers, the consequences are far more serious than a few pence on the price of a T-shirt or pair of jeans!
