why just good work
Following two years of in-depth research into company engagement with modern slavery, the recruitment process repeatedly stood out as one of the key areas of exploitation, extortion and deception for victims and those at risk.
Recruitment of workers and sub-contracting emerged as one of the least visible and unregulated aspects of supply chains for large companies.
These findings were confirmed when we began to talk to workers about their recruitment experiences.
Just Good Work started with a conversation with one Kenyan worker in Qatar
He had repeatedly been deceived and overcharged on his journey to work abroad. He told of how he wished someone had told him the reality of what to expect from the recruitment and employment experience. He summed it up like this
"I wouldn’t tell people not to come, I would want them to be able to make better choices"
Soon after that, we were connected with many more Kenyan workers in Qatar, calling out for a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities at work abroad, so we set out to create a platform for both jobseekers and workers.
WHO WE ARE: A COLLABORATIVE PLATFORM
Just Good Work is being developed as an independent, collaborative platform, which seeks to draw others in and provide a tool to promote or enhance existing good work, rather than re-inventing the wheel.
Key Partners include:
Fifty Eight, who partner with companies, charities and other organisations to address the challenges of modern slavery and improve working conditions in global supply chains. Fifty Eight reinvests profits into projects that are tackling the root causes of modern slavery.
The Anglican Church and international ecumenical networks, enabling distribution and trust to be built locally.
Ugandan tech accelerator Lift 256 is building the app.
We believe in creating employment opportunities in areas where people are most vulnerable to being misled into forced or exploitative employment.
We aim to find the most effective deployment of technology to equip workers and companies with trustworthy information. With better insight into the recruitment journey and employment experience, we can collaboratively make it better for everyone.
