Thank you for your response to my question 2019/4130. How will you measure the success of the Good Work Standard without a target on the number of sign-ups from businesses?

I want as many employers as possible to sign up to the Good Work Standard as I believe this is the benchmark for employment standards that all employers should be able to achieve.

We are currently working with a range of employers as GWS early adopters and we will be refining the Standard and our success measures based on their feedback.

The success of the Good Work Standard will depend on not just how many employers sign up to the initiative and gain accreditation, but also the number of workers and employees within those organisations who will see the benefits of those improved working practices..

We will also know the Good Work Standard is a success by monitoring how many employers use the Good Work Standard tools to improve their employment practices and by ensuring we are engaging a range of employers from different sectors and of different sizes.
