Microphone Responsible recruitment: tackling forced labour at the root

Recruitment slavery risks are real, but a challenge that business is now tackling

Recruitment is often the stage at which workers in supply chains can be most vulnerable to falling into modern slavery and bonded labour. They are forced to pay large fees to recruitment agents and middle-men. In response, a number of brands are taking action. In this webinar, an expert panel discusses the Employer Pays Principle and assesses the latest company commitments towards responsible recruitment.

Panel:

Brent Wilton, director of global workplace rights, The Coca-Cola Company

Doug Nystrom, director of human rights – supply chain, Walmart

Cindy Berman, head of modern slavery strategy, The Ethical Trading Initiative

Hosted by: Ian Welsh, publishing director, Innovation Forum
