There is increasing evidence to convince companies of all sizes that upfront investment of time and resources in stakeholders relations are an essential part of doing business that will ultimately save resources further down the line as well as reputation and future outlays. Even minor complaints can escalate if left unattended.
Many companies today see the business case for setting up effective grievance mechanisms to help address and prevent complaints with employees and communities impacted by their operations.
To address the need to enhance the process of dealing with complaints and the need to illustrate the practical application of the 8 effectiveness criteria – as outlined in the UN Guiding Principles on Business & human rights – CSR Europe has developed the Management of Complaints Assessment (MOC-A) tool.
