Recruitment firm pledges to help victims of human trafficking

A recruitment agency has shown they know the importance of brand awareness, after pledging to offer victims of human harassment employment.

Brightwork, a staffing firm based in Glasgow, has partnered with charity, Migrant Help, to aid victims in starting their lives over with impressive job prospects.

Speaking to the Evening Times, Shan Saba, director at Brightwork, commented: “This is a substantial commitment for us, given the number of victims of human trafficking who are rescued in Scotland each year, but as a company we are committed to this cause.

“We stand by these victims, people brought to Scotland under false pretences then worked to exhaustion in abject conditions. We will offer them employment and a future.”

Charity in organizations is essential – not only is it a way of giving back to your community but it also gives employees a sense of togetherness and comradery with their colleagues.

Earlier this month, we spoke to HR Leaders Summit West’s closing key note speaker, Christina McClung, Chief People Officer and Chief of Staff to the President for Capital One Canada. She revealed how their organization thrives on giving back to their public, through the surprising modem of coding.

“Gift the Code’ is a hackathon that’s focused on bringing together the technology community within Toronto and introducing them to charities that need help advancing their tech platforms,” she explained.

“We bring the charities to the event and pair them with technologists who then spend their weekend writing code to help them build solutions that last.”
