Guidance on best practice in ethical recruitment of migrant workers

Author: Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility , Published on: 7 May 2017

...The global recruitment industry and its many risks have become a focal point for many companies with extended supply chains. ICCR members challenge companies in their respective sectors to take leadership and become models for their sector peers, fostering a race to the top on questions of corporate responsibility. The companies presented in this study [Coca Cola, Hewlett Packard, Patagonia, Princes Tuna, Penguin Apparel, Thai Union] have all taken leadership positions in forging and implementing ethical recruitment policies in their respective industries.
