“Social Responsibility is not just policy document it's a genuine commitment to the humanity of our labour market.”
The human cost of exploitation has become a reality in New Zealand.
AIM CRI have been active in investigation of exploitation as well as the implementation of programmes to reduce risk from within our clients’ supply chain.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Most businesses have claimed a commitment to ethical labour practice and transparency within their immediate business activity. The reality is that the lack of supply chain visibility means exploitation can be prevalent despite corporate policy.
Measuring the extent of exploitation is incredibly difficult due to its clandestine nature. AIM CRI has been successful in identifying exploitation, proving liability and demonstrating the genuine commitment of our clients to ethical labour practices.
Exploitation – the reality
Within New Zealand the employment environment has changed. We are facing complexities of unskilled labour shortages, higher unemployment and large numbers of temporary migrants.
