Reflections from the 2018 Global Forum on Responsible Recruitment

26 June 2018

The 2018 Global Forum on Responsible Recruitment and Employment took place on the 11th-12th June 2018 in Singapore.

Hosted by the Institute for Human Rights and Business and Consumer Goods Forum, with partners Humanity United, this second annual dialogue brought together global brands, suppliers, recruitment agencies, governments, and NGOs to discuss and examine the challenges of recruiting migrant workers and how implementing ethical recruitment is vital in protecting workers from modern slavery as well as ensuring sustainable and efficient business operations. 

As a follow up to the event, seven of the guest speakers/participants at the Global Forum have given their take on the impact and outcomes of the discussions and what work remains toward eradicating worker fees and achieving global uptake of the Employer Pays Principle
