Yes. The Good Work Standard (GWS) has been developed and designed to promote good work practices in organisations of all sizes and sectors. This includes the retail sector and my Economic Fairness team have been engaging with retailers to develop the GWS. The team have built strong relationships with a number of exemplary employers who I hope will be early adopters of the GWS and champion the initiative with their wider sector and supply chains.
