‘The topic of fair and ethical recruitment may be known by the participants. However, it is essential to be able to identify and understand the roles, rights, obligations and responsibilities of different stakeholders in order to guarantee fair and ethical recruitment. This can be done thanks to this practical training that facilitates relevant stakeholders who are involved in this process, to comprehend and improve their quality of daily work. Therefore, the training will make participants more confident in the migrant workers recruitment process’, stated Mr Dang Si Dung, Deputy Director General of Department of Overseas Labour (DoLAB).
To provide knowledge on global norms and key principles and to enhance practical skills of fair and ethical recruitment throughout the migrant workers recruitment process, a virtual training was organised by PMD-GIZ in collaboration with DoLAB of Vietnam’s Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs for different relevant Vietnamese stakeholders, which lasted 03 half days from 2nd to 4th March 2022.
The training course attracted 82 participants including representatives of DoLAB, Provincial Departments of Labor Invalid and Social Affairs, advisors of Migrant Resource Centres (MRCs) and Employment Service Centers of 13 provinces: Thai Binh, Nam Dinh, Hai Duong, Hung Yen, Bac Ninh, Thanh Hoa, Phu Tho, Nghe An, Ha Tinh, Quang Ngai, Hue, Vinh Long and Can Tho, employment service enterprises and project Triple Win – GIZ.
The training – under the framework of the project “Sustainable Labour Migration” of the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg granted by the PMD – was facilitated by two researchers from the United Nations University – Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT) and Maastricht University. It offered insights into processes of fair and ethical recruitment, its legal framework and a few case studies from different countries.
The same training was conducted also in our partner countries Kosovo and Georgia for relevant stakeholders.
