Fair for Employers

Unethical recruitment exposes employers and brands to reputational damage and legal liabilities. It also causes skills mismatches and poor retention, which lead to loss of productivity.

IRIS supports employers and brands to:

  1. Identify labour recruiters committed to ethical recruitment

  2. Enhance due diligence in the procurement of recruitment services

  3. Demonstrate efforts to eliminate modern slavery

Companies can drive positive change by taking concrete actions to promote ethical recruitment:

  • Adopt the 'Employer Pays' Principle
  • Support IRIS

  • Know their labour supply chain

  • Share best practices

  • Support industry-wide approaches

  • Empower workers with pre-departure orientation

  • Mainstream the concerns of migrant workers into sustainability policies

  • Engage with governments
