The manufacturing industry was the first to take a hard, scientific look at quality. Manufacturers are concerned both with the quality of products and the quality of the manufacturing process itself. Manufacturers use standards and continual process improvement methodologies to improve both processes and product quality. They view quality in terms of measurements and statistics. Quality is compliance to best known standards, processes and specifications.
At Zazzle, we’re deeply committed to social responsibility with a desire to support the communities around the globe that we interact with and foster safe and respectful workplaces. Read about the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act and our Code of Conduct in support of our commitment to transparency and accountability.
California Supply Chain Transparency Law
In our home turf of California, on January 1, 2010, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) (“Act”) went into effect to provide consumers with the information they need to make informed choices about the goods and services they buy and the companies they support. The Act seeks the elimination of slavery and human trafficking from product supply chains.
As proud Californians and Global citizens, we here at Zazzle are committed to ensuring that our company and the companies we work with are free from forced labor. This means we’re taking a stand on a few key measures as follows:
We work with a large, diverse chain of stakeholders and business partners and we expect them to adhere to ethical business practices consistent with our own.
As a responsible corporate citizen, we seek to ensure that quality and safety standards are maintained throughout our supply chain by well-treated, fairly compensated workers in accordance with all applicable laws.
We maintain internal accountability standards for our suppliers and assess them on an annual basis using Zazzle and third party resources, including onsite inspections (both scheduled and unannounced).
We also require our suppliers to certify they are in compliance with all applicable laws.
We train our Zazzle employees involved in our supply chain on these issues, and will terminate business with any supplier found to have violated this policy.
We believe in sharing these measures as a way of honoring the efforts of this act and our own commitment to a product free from forced labor.
Sustainability is a broad discipline, giving students and graduates insights into most aspects of the human world from business to technology to environment and the social sciences. The core skills with which a graduates leaves college or university are highly sought after, especially in a modern world looking to drastically reduce carbon emissions and discover and develop the technologies of the future. Sustainability draws on politics, economics and, philosophy and other social sciences as well as the hard sciences. Sustainability skills and environmental awareness is a priority in many corporate jobs at graduate level and over as businesses seek to adhere to new legislation. Therefore, Sustainability graduates will go into many fields but most commonly civic planning, environmental consultancy (built and natural environment), agriculture, not for profit, corporate strategies, health assessment and planning, and even into law and decision making. Entry-level jobs are growing and over the coming years, bachelors graduates can expect more and more options and opportunities.
