The benefits of fair recruitment - Results of the impact study on the Nepal-Jordan corridor

The ILO’s Integrated Programme on Fair Recruitment conducted a fair recruitment pilot for migrants in the garment sector moving through the Nepal-Jordan corridor in 2017-18, during which a fair recruitment agency sent 130 female Nepali workers to four garment factories in Jordan. Tufts University carried out an impact assessment of the pilot between April 2017 and November 2918. As the ILO’s first impact assessment of a fair recruitment initiative, the research showcases the benefits fair recruitment practices for both workers and employers, and builds evidence to further promote change in recruitment practices globally.
