Abstract [en]

The need to evaluate the working standards of technology factories has become a growingly present matter as an increased amount of extreme cases have been published in media.

In this study we have researched how Swedish companies, in the technology industry, work with these kind of evaluations today and how they might be able to improve their work by getting inspiration from other industries.

The different companies that execute these controls are all more or less working in the same way. If this is to be considered as an advantage or disadvantage is hard to say, but there are performance gaps in the process that could be excluded by well directed investments.

An obvious requisition for the industry to improve in their CSR related work, is for the larger companies to be pioneers in the area and set a standard in the industry that other companies must comply to.

Abstract [sv]

Behovet av att kontrollera arbetsförhållandena på teknikfabriker har ökat i takt med att allt fler missförhållanden uppmärksammats i media. Detta har lett till att det även blivit relevant att utvärdera metoderna för dessa kontroller, hur de ser ut samt hur de går till. I den här uppsatsen har vi undersökt hur svenska företag i teknikbranschen arbetar med dessa kontroller, samt hur de skulle kunna förbättra sitt arbete genom att ta till sig metoder som används i andra branscher. Företagen som genomför kontrollerna arbetar mer eller mindre alla på samma sätt. Om detta ska betraktas som en fördel eller nackdel kan vara svårt att avgöra i dagsläget, men det finns brister i arbetet som skulle kunna lösas genom ekonomiska investeringar. Ett givet krav för att teknikbranschen ska kunna utveckla sitt CSR-arbete är att de stora aktörerna blir föregångare i området och sätter en standard som de andra företagen kan rätta sig efter.
