Better Factories Cambodia provides a variety of training opportunities for Cambodia’s garment industry. In our training we focus on improving working conditions, productivity and quality through workplace cooperation.
Currently training opportunities are:
With an increasing global interest in working conditions, allied to a competitive international environment, there is a strong need to provide quality training that allows participants the chance to identify issues of concern and find practical solutions for themselves. Consequently, ILO Better Factories Cambodia training always adopts a participatory methodology, which ensures that all learners have the opportunity to share their views and build on their own experiences by learning more from the experiences of others in the industry.
The majority of our training activities tend to involve bi-partite stakeholders (management and union representatives). Nearly all of Cambodia’s garment factories are unionized. As workplace cooperation is the basis of all our training initiatives, Better Factories Cambodia believes that providing management and workers the opportunity to learn together and from each other will have a positive impact on workplace cooperation through improved communication and mutual understanding.
Many of our training activities also include follow-up factory visits to ensure that learners are able to transfer classroom based learning back to their places of work. ILO Better Factories Cambodia staff assists these initiatives, although the ultimate responsibility for improvements in the factories rests with the training participants and factory constituents themselves.

BFC also runs a customized training programme to address the real needs of individual factories on the issues which are not covered by the single issues training. To be able to tailor the training programme, there are pre-training activities needed to be undertaken for the pre-training needs assessment, follow up visits after classroom based training to help participants setting up a Factory Improvement Plan.
The training duration can be varied depending on the content covered, but mostly it lasts for 2 days, plus one day pre-assessment, and one day follow up visits.
Human Resource Management System
This is a three module-training programme consisting of five days intensive classroom-based work and supplemented by factory follow-up carried out by BFC's advisors in support of the factory's improvement plan.
HRMS managers include 3 modules:
| Module 1:
provides awareness on HR practices that improve compliances in Cambodian factories
provides knowledge on Cambodian Labour Law, international labour standards and buyers’ code of conduct to make sure HR practices in compliance with legal requirements
provides skills to improve HR practices at the factories.
The HRMS training will include a four to five week break between each module to allow the factory to implement the improvement plan with the technical support by BFC's factory advisors. For the training to take place, there is a need of having a group of at least five factories. Each factory will be able to send up to five or six participants each day of the training. The overall period of the HRMS Training will be between four and six months.
This training is designed for HR managers and HR personnel at garment factories of Cambodia. It aims to provide the basic understanding and knowledge of human resources system so that participants can find practical ways to manage their HR activities systematically and efficiently.
