Mini Rodini Performance Check 2018
Mini Rodini has shown advanced results on performance indicators and has made exceptional progress. With 97% of its own production under monitoring by FWF audits Mini Rodini significantly exceeds the monitoring threshold required for second year members. With a benchmarking score of 79 Mini Rodini has achieved leader status.
Mini Rodini works with suppliers where they have significant leverage, which allows them to work effectively on improving working conditions. While continuous efforts are still needed, the company has strong systems in place to source new suppliers and has shown advanced efforts to mitigate the root causes of excessive overtime. In 2017, Mini Rodini’s pattern-makers improved their processes and analysis showed that the percentage of changes made in the collection decreased significantly.
During its last financial year Mini Rodini added one of their main Turkish suppliers to their living wage project, with whom the member brand has shown great efforts in working together towards payment of a living wage. As an advanced step, FWF encourages Mini Rodini to continue taking steps towards living wages throughout their supply base, in which increased transparency in costing and productivity are essential but also continuous analysis of living wage models at each supplier. Besides this, immediate follow up of a complaint was done at one of its production locations in India. All remediation steps have been implemented according to the guidelines.
Challenges remain in maintaining stable business relationships with suppliers and stimulating suppliers to participate in WEP trainings, to raise awareness about the existence and the functioning of FWF’s worker hotline.
