​Fair Employment Foundation builds market solutions to end the forced labour of migrant workers in Asia. We are a non-profit organisation based in Hong Kong.

Some of our initiatives are social businesses that generate revenue. Others are pioneering solutions and technologies that help workers and employers alike.

Since our set-up in 2014, we’ve:
● Placed 5000 workers into jobs safely via our nonprofit recruitment agency, Fair Employment Agency that never charges fees to workers and since our launch, we have seen a dramatic reduction in fees charged to workers by 65% in the six years of operations in Hong Kong so far.
● Trained 600+ first-time migrant workers with life skills needed for successful migration at our partner nonprofit center, Fair Training Center in Manila, Philippines.
● Educated thousands of members of the public on fair hiring and management of migrant domestic workers with our Employer Education and Fair Hiring Pledge initiatives.

We are now ready to scale our solutions in Hong Kong, the Philippines, Malaysia and beyond, and we are looking for a talented and ambitious change-maker to join our growing team. Migration has the potential to help bring millions out of poverty. But current misalignments in the market leave workers vulnerable to exploitation and does disservice to employers. Sadly, this is a problem across industries globally.

Fortunately, we know it can be solved!

Since 2014, we have been building out market solutions that will make migration work better for everyone. Our initiatives are setting the standard for ethical recruitment, training for migration, and management.
