Social audit

A social audit is an audit of a company’s performance and impact across a range of social indicators, including industrial relations, community impact, social dialogue, stakeholder consultation, observance of labour standards and contribution to social infrastructure. The focus of a social audit needs to be defined and can vary depending on the goals of the company and the auditing service provider.
