Brief Description

Sustaining Competitive & Responsible Enterprises (SCORE) is a global ILO development corporation programme that promotes productivity, competitiveness and decent work in emerging economies. The programme is assisting Governments, Industries, Associations and Trade Unions in Africa, Asia and Latin America to develop export and domestic industrial sectors with particular focus on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Its main intervention is SCORE Training, a practical training and in-factory consulting practical programme that improves productivity and working conditions in SMEs. The MDPI, in collaboration with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) has been executing the Sustainable Competitive Responsible Enterprise (SCORE) training programme since 2013 which is being sponsored by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD) and the Switzerland State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). SCORE Training demonstrates best international practices in the manufacturing and service sectors and helps SMEs to participate in global supply chains. The programme further works with government, employers and workers’ organizations to address key constraints that hamper growth in specific industries. It further advises partners on best practices in vocational, technical and management skills in the development of SMEs. MDPI has been working with ILO to execute this laudable programme since 2013 and has been mandated by ILO to run the SCORE programme for SMEs.
