In the aftermath of a Bangladeshi factory disaster, a number of Australia’s big-brands are in the spotlight over outsourcing to entities providing horrendous working conditions to workers.

    This issue goes right to the heart of what organisations deem to be value. In all of the companies mentioned value = $$ and are prepared to do whatever it takes to appease the shareholders. I would also challenge the HR functions of these companies and ask why they let a culture of gain and greed develop - If HR is going to play a strategic role, then this is an excellent example of what not to do. I would encourage readers to read the book "The Puritan Gift" - it's a great read on why so many companies go into downfall when they only see value as $$'s. I would also suggest understanding your organisational HR Maturity level - it is a significant and trusted KPI that will allude to why these issues happen in companies.
