Training Toolkit on Establishing Fair Recruitment Processes

Caja de Herramientas para la Formación - Establecer procesos de contratación equitativos

El curso está disponible en English, Français, Español, العربية

En 2014, la OIT lanzó la Iniciativa de contratación equitativa para ayudar a prevenir la trata de personas, proteger los derechos de los trabajadores (incluidos los trabajadores migrantes) de prácticas abusivas y fraudulentas durante el proceso de reclutamiento y colocación, reducir el costo de la migración laboral y mejorar los avances en el desarrollo.

Este conjunto de herramientas para la formación, desarrollado en el marco de la Iniciativa de Contratación Equitativa de la OIT, ha sido diseñado en colaboración con el Centro Internacional de Formación de la OIT. Representa un paso adelante para lograr los objetivos del Proyecto REFRAME al producir y difundir conocimiento y herramientas globales para informar políticas y desarrollar capacidades de actores relevantes a diferentes niveles nacionales, regionales e internacionales.

La caja de herramientas para la formación se compone de cinco módulos, que abordan temas específicos —aunque interrelacionados— relacionados con la contratación equitativa.

What will I learn?

The first module of the toolkit on Establishing Fair Recruitment Processes aims to introduce the main concepts related to fair recruitment and the key features of the international recruitment landscape. In doing so, the module provides the necessary tools to tackle the other modules.

This module introduces the normative framework for fair recruitment, consisting principally of the General Principles and Operational Guidelines for Fair Recruitment, supplements legally binding treaties by unpacking the specific roles and responsibilities of the various actors implicated in the promotion of fair recruitment.

The modern recruitment landscape is constantly adapting in order to respond to rapidly changing labour market needs. In recent decades, it has been characterized by a rise in the prominence of private recruitment agencies. Governments, in their regulatory capacity, are required to determine the legal status and conditions for their operation.

The adoption in 1997 of the ILO Private Employment Agencies Convention (No. 181) reflected the acknowledgement of the growing role played by private recruitment agencies in matching workers with available jobs, and their potential to promote labour market efficiency. However, the Convention also recognizes the need for governments to regulate and monitor their activities.
