Driving Responsible Recruitment in Asia: Myanmar Roundtable

15 May 2019 Novotel Yangon Max, 459 Pyay Road, Kamayut Tsp, Yangon, Myanmar

The Consumer Goods Forum, IHRB’s Leadership Group for Responsible Recruitment, and the Responsible Labor Initiative are hosting a Regional Roundtable in Myanmar on Driving Responsible Recruitment in Asia.

Building on successful regional roundtables and governmental dialogues in 2018, this practical roundtable meeting offers a rare opportunity for brands, suppliers and recruitment agencies to come together for constructive discussions on transitioning to responsible recruitment based on the Employer Pays Principle and CGF Priority Industry Principles.

The Myanmar Roundtable will explore the challenges in Myanmar as a major origin country for migrant workers across South East Asia. It will include expert input and practical learnings from those directly engaged at all stages of the recruitment cycle.

Attendees will gain a clear understanding of the drivers of change in the recruitment industry and how adopting responsible recruitment practices can help their business. The meeting will provide a unique opportunity to share thoughts and openly discuss both the roadblocks and the opportunities in shifting to an ethical recruitment model.

The event is open to multi-national brands, suppliers and other companies using migrant workers from Myanmar, recruitment agencies, trade and business associations and civil society organisations.

Further event information is available in English and in Burmese.

If you would like to attend the event, please register here (registration is essential).

 

In partnership with Humanity United, Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business, International Organization for Migration, International Tourism Partnership, the International Labour Organization, and the Issara Institute.
