Designing effective human rights training aligned with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights

Companies have an internationally recognized responsibility to respect human rights and to develop a suitable training program to ensure that employees are equipped to help reduce the risk of human rights harm. Nearly all companies have existing training on anti-bribery and anticorruption. But human rights training encompasses a broader employee group and a broader scope of responsibility, presenting a uniquely challenging training environment. This Good Practice Note highlights different approaches for designing effective human rights training programs and identify challenges that can be avoided with proper planning.
