Good Jobs Rating

The Good Economy developed the Good Jobs Rating for investors looking to assess the contribution of company employment to wider society. This powerful data analytics tool means investors, for the first time, can now align and track their investment performance against UN Sustainable Development Goal 8. SDG 8 is particularly important because of its strong inter-linkages with other SDGs.

The need to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has become a universal concern for governments, business leaders and investors. The Good Jobs Rating fills a current vacuum in SDG 8 data and analytics.

We developed the Good Jobs Rating through a two-year collaboration with Sycomore Asset Management. Testing our solution on a real-world portfolio with a leading responsible investor that focuses on human capital and good jobs has enhanced the Rating’s functionality and relevance to all investor users.
