BASED ON ENGAGEMENT
The BHR Grievance Assessment Tool aims to assess the effectiveness of corporate grievance mechanisms and remedy measures implemented by companies in all sectors and contexts.
These grievance mechanisms could be directed to different stakeholders (employees, supply chain, clients, shareholders, communities…).
The assessment considers both formal and non-formal processes.
Eight effectiveness criteria applicable to a company grievance mechanism following the United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGP) standard.
The tool provides an assessment against the 8 effectiveness criteria of the UNGP, process requirements and against peers that have already undertaken the assessment. All mechanisms are assessed separately.
80 indicators (47 main indicators) that assess the eight effectiveness criteria of each mechanism.
