ManpowerGroup News Release (09/25/12)
ManpowerGroup formally announced at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City Tuesday that it has partnered with eight other global companies to form the Global Business Coalition Against Trafficking, which provides businesses with tools designed to end all forms of human trafficking. “Fully engaging the corporate community is a critical step in the war to end modern-day slavery,” said David Arkless, ManpowerGroup’s president of global corporate and government affairs and gBCAT co-chair. “Human trafficking is a global problem which can only be eradicated by mobilizing global solutions. Corporations need to take action, get involved, and become part of the solution.”
gBCAT will work to mobilize the expertise, resources and voices of coalition members to abolish human trafficking across industries. Members are committed to assisting to eradicate trafficking in supply chains where incidences of forced labor may be currently undetectable. As a thought leaders’ forum, gBCAT will develop and share best practices for preventing traffickers from entering a company’s operations. gBCAT will pursue training modules for employees and general awareness-raising among consumers, suppliers, and partners.
