Announcing the launch of a new audit protocol to assess recruitment practices at Labour Recruitment Agencies.  Join us for a webinar to learn about the newest addition to Intertek’s Social Responsibility auditing solutions designed to enable organisations around the world to monitor their supply chains and ensure fair working conditions.

The large-scale migration of workers in global supply chains is increasingly facilitated by networks of recruitment agencies, and labour outsourcing providers. Combined with the employment of services contractors by suppliers and the inherent lack of transparency in supply chains, organisations face increased risk of serious labour exploitation due to unethical recruitment practices. These types of labour providers are often overlooked or marginally reviewed through social audits, as efforts of businesses are prioritized at core production suppliers.

Intertek’s new service focuses specifically on the Labour & Recruitment Agencies as a baseline assessment with opportunity for continuous improvement through the development of policies and procedures to support systemic good recruitment practices across business partners.

During the webinar we will review additional support offered with our partner Workplace Options, for organisations or suppliers wishing to implement grievance mechanisms, surveys, labour line, to improve communication with workers and to prevent further labour violation.
