Participants at a training session conducted by Samsung

Workers that are happy and protected are usually the most productive.

It is vital that all employees have access to the right support throughout their recruitment process and employment term. 

Samsung Electronics adopted a training scheme with a wider commitment to fair and safe treatment of migrant workers. 

The drive comes at a time when there is an increasing interest in migrant workers,particularly in Malaysia especially in the global manufacturing and agriculture supply chains.

Problems of migrant workers in Malaysia also come from its geographical aspect. 

Improvements based on proactive efforts are necessary to resolve threatening issues, such as forced labour and exploitation of migrants.

For Samsung, this meant a campaign of activities to ensure workers from overseas are treated fairly.The company announced a new set of guidelines at the end of last year. 

The Samsung Migrant Worker Guidelines with the support from BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), came to eradicate forced or coercive labor.

Following the move, Samsung conducted a training session in March which was attended by first-tier suppliers, labour sourcing companies and recruitment agencies.
