Corporate Responsibility
Motorola Mobility

Training

Auditing is only one part of our program to improve suppliers’ corporate responsibility performance. We help our suppliers resolve issues identified during audits and encourage them to develop the awareness, systems and skills to deal directly with the issues.

But we recognize the limitations of monitoring and realize that lasting improvements will be achieved only if suppliers have the capability to manage worker rights and environmental impacts themselves. EICC and GeSI collectively develop training programs available to electronics industry suppliers and we promote these opportunities to our suppliers. 

We also make our own online training available to our suppliers. The online training explains elements of Motorola Mobility’s Supplier Code of Conduct, and provides examples of good management practices to help suppliers avoid noncompliance with the code. Since January 2011, around 145 representatives from 114 supplier companies have registered for the online training course.
