How major Australian supermarkets use StaffSure to shore up their ethical
Australian supermarkets Coles and Woolworths have taken further steps to ensure their supply chains are ethical and exploitation-free by locking down minimum requirements for labour hire providers across the agricultural sector.
Both retailers have moved to shore up minimum standards by adopting StaffSure, a
proactive industry-led certification program led by RCSA, the peak industry body for the recruitment and staffing sector in Australian and New Zealand.
Through the process, Coles says it understands both the role and value of labour hire
providers in its supply chain as well as the potential they can bring for exploitation of staff.
“To help suppliers and the recruitment and staffing industry to reduce risk, Coles has
supported the development of the StaffSure labour hire certification program,” a Coles spokesperson says.
“StaffSure is an independent industry-led certification program that assesses labour hire providers against six key risk elements.”
