The Annual Leadership Forum for Responsible Recruitment


From 19 to 20 June 2017, the IRIS team joined representatives from business, government, recruiters, trade associations and other expert organizations in Berlin at the Annual Leadership Forum for Responsible Recruitment.

Organized by the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) and representing the collective voice of key stakeholders, the Forum facilitated the sharing of best practices on effective approaches to ensuring ethical recruitment of migrant workers in supply chains. Our team spoke on a panel discussing the drivers for responsible recruitment. The forum urged business leaders, government authorities, international organizations and civil society organizations to intensify efforts on: 

  • increasing business demand for ethical recruitment services
  • increasing supply from ethical and professional labour recruiters
  • advocating for improved protection of migrant workers
