Event description

Description

We invite stakeholders active in the US produce industry to meet and share their successes and work together on solutions to common challenges in responsible recruitment.

Growers, labor agencies, packers, distributors, foodservice operators, marketers and retailers of fresh produce, industry associations and civil society, trade unions, workers, government representatives, donors, and academics – are all welcome.


American produce relies on hundreds of thousands of skilled workers to plant the fields, tend the crops, harvest the produce and pack it for markets both here and abroad. Given current labor shortages, their responsible recruitment is critical to achieving commercial goals and delivering an exceptional work seeker experience.

The event aims to build consensus around the definition of responsible recruitment and on the most promising and proven approaches that should be promoted, encouraged, and invested in over the next several years. A summary of the lessons and recommendations from the discussion will be published.

Agenda
• The current landscape of recruitment
• Employer perspectives on market drivers, current models, needs and opportunities
• The impact of flawed recruitment practices on migrant workers
• Promising and proven approaches
• How to build and support a professional and ethical industry



Please note that there are limited places available at this event so please inform us as soon as possible if you booked a place but can no longer attend so that we can offer the space to someone else, thank you.
