Many Contract Labour Agencies are highly reputable organisations, but in some parts of the World and in some Value Chains, practices are not as ethical as many global businesses might require.
This sets SGS out to the scene / current topics of concerns, and then uses a Value Chain Risk Management System applied to Contract Labour Agencies to diagnose, understand and work towards strategies to solve the issues inherent in using Contract Labour Agencies.
This webinar builds on the series of Value Chain Risk Management Systems delivered by SGS over the last 2 years. The focus is to help organisations understand the complex challenges in achieving solid ethical practices in today’s highly dynamic and flexible workforce. It builds directly on the notion that use of multiple labour recruiting and managing approaches bring risks to businesses. We have seen across every continent, labour exploitation particularly of migrant workers. Now many leading global brands are focusing on the practices of recruiting and managing workers, and this gives SGS opportunity to reflect on what so far…and what’s next.
Dr. Colin Morgan, Global Solutions Manager – Value Chain Risk Management Services
Dr. Morgan holds a doctorate in sustainability and has global responsibility for the SGS service delivery for Value Chain risk-based evaluations for organizations globally. He also oversees the SGS Sustainability Strategy & Communications services where he has worked with globally recognized high profile organizations across nearly every continent.

For him, it is simple – organisations want to be sustainable now more than ever and there are many barriers to this – Dr. Morgan helps organisations overcome these barriers.
This webinar will be of interest to sustainability specialists, procurement teams across global organisations, HR leadership teams who want to ensure that their own operations are in good ethical order, and large brands that have complex global value chains that probably rely on migrant workers or workers in contract labour systems.
