Impacts of Soft Skills Training for Female Garment Workers

The P.A.C.E. program trains female garment workers in soft skills and life skills such as financial awareness, problem solving, reproductive health, and decision making. Our evaluation of this program shows that investing in the life skills of female garment workers delivers measurable ROI to businesses.

  • Female P.A.C.E. workers were 11-12% more productive.
  • Additional person days and worker productivity provided a 250+% net return on investment eight months after program completion.
  • P.A.C.E. trained workers were more likely to invest in their children's education and avail state sponsored welfare schemes.

Soft Skills Training for Line Managers

S.T.I.T.C.H. (Supervisors' Transformation Into Change Holders) is a soft-skills training for line supervisors on factory floors. It addresses issues of abuse and harassment and team productivity to improve workplace outcomes and the general work environment.

  • The content of the training was drawn from an extensive survey of the managerial practices at Shahi.
  • Using econometric methods, we identified aspects of managerial quality which are the most important determinants of productivity.
  • The experiment covers 2002 supervisors - 1039 receiving the treatment and 963 part of the control group, receiving the treatment in the second phase.
