The Human Rights Matrix is an initial self-assessment and learning tool that enables a company to begin to understand and address its human rights performance, by identifying its policies on human rights and the approaches it has taken towards human rights. It will help you SIMPLIFY, VISUALISE, ASSESS AND MANAGE your human rights programs and performance. It is not a compliance audit, and does not purport to determine whether a company is effectively implementing its own policies, which would require a thorough human rights due diligence process. Rather, it serves as a starting point for more focused and rigorous inquiry. It is business friendly with built-in human rights expertise and knowledge, in particular with the BLIHR Essential Steps and Beyond Essential good practice examples. The Human Rights Matrix has been developed in parallel with two other resources for business The Guide for Integrating Human Rights into Business Management and the Human Rights Accountability Guide.
- Enables you to get started quickly
- Provides a snap-shot of performance
- Provides a basis for conversation, prioritization and planning
- Familiarizes you with human rights expectations for your business
- Delivers instant feedback around potential areas of concern
- Collects all of your human rights related policies, practices and initiatives across multiple business function
Senior leaders | CR professionals | Functional Managers
Individuals across your company will use the Matrix in different ways. In particular, the tool is designed and structured to support functional managers - often not human rights experts – in completing the sections of the tool most relevant to them. Board members and senior leaders will appreciate the simple, short reports and ‘dashboard’ presentation that supports strategic discussion. CR Professionals will find the tool useful to assess performance, manage knowledge and support planning.
