Workforce Disclosure Initiative (WDI)


The Workforce Disclosure Initiative (WDI) improves the quality of jobs in multinational companies’ operations and supply chains by enhancing corporate transparency and accountability, supporting SDG 8: decent work for all. Founded in 2016 by NGO ShareAction and supported by an international investor coalition, WDI promotes disclosure of impactful metrics related to working conditions and engages with companies to improve governance and practices across topics including pay, worker voice, human rights and diversity and inclusion. WDI sets the bar for worker-centric corporate disclosure. In 2020, 141 companies with 12 million directly employed workers reported to the Initiative.
