Ethical Recruitment Auditor Training

This course unpacks the basics of forced labor, its root causes, and ethical recruitment standards.

This experiential workshop for lead auditors simulates a site investigation of forced labor indicators, including documents review and ‘live’ interviews of migrant workers, employers and labor agents.

What students have said about the Verité Ethical Recruitment Auditing course:
  • “At first, I was expecting a common (a basic) and typical social training, but these four days guided me to know, and realize, social audits are challenging, and they are subjective. The training was amazing!”
  • “Extremely helpful. Ethical recruitment remains a sensitive issue and it’s good that we are trained on the topic.”
  • “Very robust, and all social auditors should definitely attend at least once.”
  • “I valued the specific examples that [the trainer] provided during her sessions the most. Experience sharing is most helpful to relate to our own experiences.”
