Retailers encourage supply chains to be responsible in recruitment

Many of the UK’s large retailers have joined together as sponsors of the Responsible Recruitment Toolkit (RRT).

The retailers are Aldi, Asda, Co-op, Kingfisher, M&S, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose & Partners.

The move is to enable businesses in their supply chains to gain free access to an online capacity building and self-assessment tool with supported training on embedding ethical and professional recruitment and labour supply practices.

Sponsor retailers will be contacting their suppliers to encourage them, and the recruitment businesses they use, to take full advantage of the free support and guidance available through the RRT.
