We head in to 2018 partnering with Justice Without Borders who share our belief that everyone is entitled to work without exploitation
We’re seeing a positive shift in attention given to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in Asia. What some initially saw as a passing trend is becoming an important and opportunistic business and social change and we at Danos Associates want to ensure we continue to be at the forefront of it.
Global companies like ourselves, have been among the first to take the lead from western organisations for whom CSR has more of a long standing foundation. Since we established our business in Asia in 2012 we have been very mindful of our own staff wellbeing and development, environmental consciousness, workplace environment and contribution to society.
With a history of raising money for individual causes we want to head into 2018, growing our businesses responsibility and so have partnered with Justice Without Borders (JWB). This incredible not-for-profit organisation share our belief that everyone is entitled to work without exploitation and allows us to reach beyond our own workplace and help carve out a positive future of all employees.
While we know that we at Danos Associates and the companies we place our candidates in have strong social values, sadly the same cannot be said for everyone. Despite social issues such as human rights, worker’s rights, the environment, health and corruption being prominent in Asia, CSR has only recently become more widely recognised as a fundamental part of a businesses structure and ethos – and there is still a way to go. Despite economic growth, Asia still has the largest number of people living on less than $1 a day and with this comes social unrest and poor development of affected workforces.
For those affected at the most severe end of this scale, JWB provide direct logistic and legal support to victims of labour exploitation and human trafficking. They work closely with migrant aid organisations, university clinical legal education programmes and their law students, lawyers, and legal aid associations in targeted host and home countries.
Their work extends to the future prevention of this by documenting the learnings from cases to improve client services and to support legal and policy advocacy aimed at advancing migrants’ fundamental rights.
As a business that takes great pride and responsibility in placing candidates into the right roles, we at Danos Associates want to see a continent where every employee can feel happy, safe and fairly compensated for their work.
