Enabling better informed, transparent pathways into work throughout the supply chain.

KORDUS

Kordus provides a real time window into supplier and recruitment operations by giving employees a user-friendly, mobile interface with everything they need for life on the job, inviting feedback at every stage.

All aspects of the working life journey, from early recruitment, throughout employment and departure are brought together in one platform.

Whether it is ensuring employees are conversant with policies and procedures, pinpointing problems in their recruitment or maximising induction and training efficiency, Kordus can help.

why kordus?

Kordus integrates all aspects of working life into a single platform, encouraging interaction and feedback users may be reluctant to offer with a stand-alone worker voice or grievance platform.

It builds on the worker- initiated model of Just Good Work with a white label platform that improves worker experience and meets specific company and supplier requirements. Kordus enables companies, suppliers, employees, labour providers and recruiters to collaboratively drive greater transparency and efficiency in the recruitment process. It adopts the same relational and collaborative ethos and tools as Just Good Work to educate, advise and learn from employees before they walk through the front door.

Kordus enables better informed, more transparent pathways into work for employees throughout your supply chain
The platform is created on the premise that preventative action is better for everyone:
Disrupting deceptive and abusive recruitment practice Reducing trauma and shame for workers Providing a more cost-effective solution for companies

"Recruitment and worker voice are the lowest scoring themes across the sectors. Yet these are the two areas assessed by the benchmark that have the most direct impact on workers' lives."

BACKGROUND

Following two years of in-depth research into company engagement on forced labour and modern slavery, the recruitment process strongly emerged as a major risk.

Firstly, as a key driver for debt bondage, exploitation and deception for job-seekers and workers.

Secondly, as one of the least visible and most unregulated aspects of the supply chains of large companies.

These findings were confirmed when we began to talk to workers about their recruitment experiences. One worker expressed it like this:

"I wouldn’t tell people not to come, I would want them to know what it will be like so they can make better choices."

Since 2017 we have worked closely with workers and other stakeholders to develop the Just Good Work mobile platform; empowering migrant job-seekers and workers to make choices based on knowledge of their rights and responsibilities, providing advice, access to help and feedback loops from the earliest stages of their recruitment journey.

our approach

Both workers and companies have been feeding into the content and design of the platform from the very beginning. We use grassroots piloting and distribution models in partnership with local organisations in each country, to establish trust and ensure maximum usability.

We have formed strategic partnerships to pitch the platform appropriately and ensure the information within it is accurate, relevant and timely. We seek to draw in, amplify and give credit to good existing resources wherever possible.

We believe in creating decent employment opportunities in areas where people are vulnerable to labour exploitation. We also believe that engaging local talent for development will enable the platform to be more targeted and effective in adapting to the nuances and specific needs and opportunities of each location.

We follow the WEST Principles for Worker Engagement Supported by Technology.
