Good Business Lab is a not-for-profit labor innovation organization. We use rigorous research methods to find a common ground between worker wellbeing and business interests. We believe that building the business case to support better conditions for workers is the most sustainable way to transform labor markets and enable all workers to live dignified lives.
Our founding team brings together two US-based academics from the University of Michigan, and the head of Organizational Development at Shahi Exports, India’s largest exporter of garments.
We are registered as a Section 8 company under the Indian Companies Act.
Our mission is to lead businesses to improve the lives of all workers. We do this by identifying workers’ needs, designing solutions, testing for wellbeing impact and financial returns, and driving the adoption of proven solutions.
We work across the journey of employment—from freeing up rural women to take up paid work and maximizing vocational skills, improving the quality of available jobs for low-income workers, to improving physical and mental health outcomes for workers through workplace health interventions.
We work responsibly and believe in communication, a lot. We are flexible, respectful, and approachable. We believe in collaboration over competition.
The team and its work continue to grow with 14 ongoing
projects in India and 03 in Latin America
