On basis of these Terms of Reference IDH aims to select a party that will construct A Business Model for Better Living Wage Benchmark Accessibility. This project is part of the IDH Roadmap on Living Wages. It builds on the Roadmap’s step 1 - which identifies and recognizes living wage benchmark methodologies - by building a business model for the development of living wage benchmarks and the creation and maintenance of a database to facilitate access to them.
In 2019, IDH launched the Roadmap on Living Wages, an initiative aimed at providing producers and buyers with practical guidance and tools to advance living wage efforts in their supply chains. As part of this effort, IDH is committed to assisting companies in measuring potential gaps between current wages (through the Salary Matrix) and up-to-date, credible living wage estimates that are relevant to their respective locations. These terms of reference have been created to contract a consultancy, an organization or a methodology that can provide to IDH the living wage benchmarks for priority regions.
