Young Workers (aged 16-25) currently form nearly half of the workforce in the electronics manufacturing industry. Their effective management – with an aim at retention and successful skill development – is recognized as a growing challenge to efficient supply chain operations. Just as relevant, is the growing reliance of factories on student workers (58% of surveyed factories currently hire student workers) who form the most vulnerable demographic in need of dedicated support.
In an effort to contribute toward stronger awareness and development of solutions on the issue, CCR CSR has partnered with CESA to conduct a detailed research study on the workers’ needs and existing management practice.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept that revolves around the integration of social and environmental concerns in a company’s business operations. The rights of a child can be affected, both positively and negatively, in any part of the business process. The responsibility of companies towards children has its basis in legal obligations. However, going beyond the traditional approach of fundraising and charities, more far reaching commitments regarding child-rights are becoming an important part of companies’ CSR strategies, also in China.
Here you can find the latest updated guide from CCR CSR, edited in April 2014.
