About the Forum

Significant progress has been made towards an increasingly global priority to ensure ethical, professional, and transparent recruitment of migrant workers – although many challenges remain. Join members of the Leadership Group for Responsible Recruitment and representatives from other global brands, suppliers, recruitment agencies, industry associations, governments, and civil society for key discussions on how to further develop, support, promote, and mainstream ‘Employer Pays’ based recruitment models.

The Global Forum will:

  • highlight current actions by business and government to promote responsible recruitment with examples of best practice from around the world;
  • promote the experience of migrant workers themselves in the recruitment process;
  • include a workshop format with facilitated table discussions for deeper analysis on recruitment related challenges for all stakeholders;
  • promote and catalyse new multi-sector approaches, solutions and opportunities around the recruitment agenda.

This business-focussed forum will be of interest to supply chain managers and buyers, sustainability professionals, human resources managers, suppliers, recruitment agencies, civil society and intergovernmental organisations and representatives from government.

The Forum will be in English, with simultaneous translation to Thai through headphones.
